Alafia Mntc. work today
« on: January 17, 2007, 08:32:04 PM »













Worked on building a berm wall at the 1'st hard option at the sweeping turn at the base of the drop as it turns left and then heads back up hill. Hopefully the berm will be good enough to hold a good line without losing speed and shoot you up the next small hill. This might help alleviate the braking and skidding at the corner. We also worked on a banked wall on Rollercoaster and smoothed out some washed out areas with fresh dirt. At the front end of Rollercoaster we covered an exposed root on the first small jump that used to be there before the dirt had eroded away and exposed the root.

Me and the Original Ellsrider  were able to get off work early and go out and do some mntc. work. Hoping for some rain to work it in but it doesn't  look good  for the wet stuff.

We planted a bunch of ferns  along the top and backside of the berm to help with erosion and to keep the dirt re-inforced. Some riders rode thru and said everything was smooth. Hopefully it works.
