XC done right

What a joy it is to hit a well designed trail. That's what this day was about. After some recent disappointments, hitting well thought out lines is a refreshing joy. Berms, switchbacks, drops, jumps that made us smile, yay for that!

This place is just outside a larger city, and the lines here are older than Yoda, but that has its drawbacks as well tho', alot has happened since the dawn of times, and there has been a lot of recent effort put into raising the overall quality in this place. Effort well spent.

Our trail guide this day was Thomas. A trail builder/designer and a long term advocate for better trails, and a higher quality of trails. Now that's something I can attest to! : )

Hitting one of the drops. Chicken lines are available. Human build features where plentiful.

Kresser hitting a double. This stuff was however on the un-official side of things.

Henning inspecting a stepdown, he refrained from hitting it last time, so there was some tension around him this very moment. Everybody knows a good mind-fuck.

Hitting it - and earning his balls this day : )

Random shots

Random shots. Some recent, some not so recent. Enjoy.

Got really lucky with this pic, the light was just right, the colors and the angle just worked perfectly. (Devils Wall, Harz mountains)

Landing to the very far right. Works like a charm.

Some on the weather recently has been mind blowing good. A tshirt is all it takes.

Henning on a newly build feature, on a XC course. It consist of 4 small drops in a row, the idea is ok I guess, but a awkward up-hill (!) run-in sucks the fun out of it, killing speed. All those man-hours, wasted because of a single stupid build decision. Oh well.

Chicks dig scars, not bruises (Part 2)

Happened during XC. A few inches to the right, and this force would have been applied to my genitals. Ouch.

Makes me think of last time.

Mr. Madsens bad idea

I noticed that the trailbuilders are upgrading the trailgap, its not quite done yet, but you can see the new drop in the background. Way bigger than the old one, and further back. Interesting stuff. Stay tuned.

I suck at XC because..

..I get easily distracted.

So I was out with Henning on a XC course near a larger city. Its a popular line that has seen some recent revisions and "improvements". Turns out it was the usual; build-without-thinking approach.


we rode the line, and all of a sudden we spot something right next to the XC line...a potential mini-roadgap! So after some inspection, a few beers, and some discreet digging, we had ourself a fine little jump, about 1,2m tall, and 3,5m out, into a transition. Turns out this..XC, is ok afterall ; )

Henning inspects the kicker-potential. The outlining below shows the edge, road, and transition.

Another angle.

Hitting it.

I have a go as well. Click to enlarge.

It might be a small jump, but it sure was a fun diversion, when the original premise of this day was XC.
