I have been actively mtb'ing since 1990 and have helped build many trails and stunts in FL over the years. One thing that continues to sadden me is the continuous effort on the part of SWAMP to make every trail, even if it is a "double black" into a generic, smooth, sidewalk, designed for one bike type "xc". I rode Moonscape yesterday and noticed that the climbs were all loaded with baby-heads and all the dh's were all smoothed out?
? The first big dh was so loaded with dirt that the berm was completely wasted and could not be entered from the bottom. It was because of this stupid trail change, that I blew the corner and dislocated my shoulder. STOP TOUCHING THE DOUBLE BLACKS!!!!! They are much better without your help... Stop making the Double blacks into blue squares... Leave something that is actually hazardous and difficult both up and down hill.... You and your short travel bikes have miles upon miles of "xc" trails to play on. Leave Gatorback and Moonscape alone as you are clearly incapable of supporting them in any useful way. Leave some diversity, the world of single track is not just for one type of rider. Just because you can't ride it or it scares you, doesn't mean that you should make it easier, it just means you should ride something else!
