Just been sent this beauty from Dan over at On Site Visuals, he says his edit from the recent race weekend is underway and we will have a copy soon!
Hope everyone had a fun weekend last weekend! The results from the 2nd round of the Borderline / FJMTB Northwest series are up over at Roots and Rain, check them out via the below line
Also if anyone has any good video edits of the race action coming together give me a yell via the contact section and I can get them up here.
In other news, the 2014 dirt jumping season is fast approaching and we could do with some help to fix the lips up down on the main trails. If anyone is interested in lending a hand regular diggers benefit from FREE PARK MEMBERSHIP for the year! Dig days coming up this Thursday and Saturday (17th and 19th of April), if we get our fingers out we might be riding this weekend ! For more info see the trails section on here or the facebook group
The first race of 2014 is due to go down on the 16th of March; John is already out crafting new sections for the race to spice things up a bit! Entries are available online via the Boarderline Events website, click for more info.
We will be open this weekend (8th and 9th March) then closed Monday to Friday (10th to 14th March). The park reopens for practice Saturday the 15th with the usual £7 day pass or £1 for members. All members must present a card with valid date membership at the farmhouse when signing in
Finally John has advised there will be some local track closures so keep an eye out and do not attempt to ride anything new or under construction, there is a reasonable chance you may run John down and he doesn’t take well to that!
Mike at Borderline has released the dates for the 2014 FJ Race series, online entry will be available shortly for this push up race series at the farm. For more details head over the Racing section or check out Borderline Events.
In other unrelated news, many people ride FJ’s but not as many are locals who dig, or are willing to ride in less than favourable conditions. Brian “Mad Monk” Monks is a man who isnt going to let a little bad weather stop him! Check this vid and have a look at his Youtube channel for many more FJ vids. Big up the Mad Monk!
Happy 2014 to all those trail fiends out there! We are looking to have some dig days over the coming weeks / months down the dirt jumps to sort things out ahead of the 2014 trails season. Normally the work falls to me, Matt and Dave however it would be nice to get some others involved to share the load!
We will have a lot to do as I imagine all the tarps will have been blown off and the biblical rain has probably put pay to any take offs/landings. We had some good times last year and have some new stuff to perfect / finish off for 2014, a little effort now will mean a big reward come summertime!
Dig dates and further info will be posted on the trails facebook page and we are looking to start this weekend (probably Sunday). In the meantime here’s a vid on board with Matt, roll on summer time!
