Work N Ride - DirtBoard Waihi, November 7 2009

Posted on 09/11/2009 by Viv

An excellent Saturday was had by all. Ben, Blair, Francis, Joe, Scottie (with Katie the pooch) and Viv managed to trim up a bit of the track and get the new section of rollers and double up to speed.  Everyone got into digging or raking and Scottie used his four wheel roller to good effect.

The afternoon was spent either riding the main track or testing the new section - it's going to make for an interesting boarder-cross option in the new year races. The wind was up a bit, which made for a bit of a speed restriction on parts of the track.  One of the big-air jumps got some use from Ben and Joe. 

Blair and Francis managed to take each other out during the afternoon which slowed these two up (missed that one as I was away unfortunately).  However, not to be outdone, Ben and Joe managed to wrap their boards around each other, giving Blair the win in the three man race.

A big thanks to all for the help on the day. Great to see the new section of track is fully rideable (although a little scary for some of us).

Note: See video too.
