    So bummed that was closed for remodel the three days i was up there. Was definitely my favorite of the jump trails from my first trip.

    They added a few new berms before the bridge and some new alternate jump lines to the left of the first maybe 4 or 5 kickers, as well as a new gap jump before the little cliff drop into the step up. It's pretty fun!

    I was lucky enough to be up there the day they dropped the rope, there's nothing like new lips and no brake bumps to up the stoke! The new steep lip on the big step up is schweet! And the newly rebuilt big kicker at the creek gap is money

    I'm guessing the dirt kicker is a little kinder than the wooden ramp. It used to give you a real kick up the ass

    Confirmed! Our group was about the 10th down once they dropped the rope and it was worth the wait.

    Its much better now, it doesn't feel like it's going to pitch you over the bars if you don't preload just right. Someone said they moved it back a couple more feet but it felt about the same to me. A couple peddle strokes from that last table and you're good. Can't wait to go back!

    That makes me feel a little better. We were going to ride Friday morning, but bailed and did a day at Blackrock on Saturday instead (Banzai was friggen tasty, so I have no complaints). If we had stuck to the original plan, I doubt we would have stayed late enough for the opening anyway since we had to get back on the road. Oh well, next time. Although next time it won't be all buffed out like that... *sniffle*
