Hi Scott

Just read your post. Shame we couldn't hook up today, maybe next time. We'll see you on Sunday. There should be four of us racing at the weekend.

Hi,

Nice to meet some Gold Coast guys at the new track today. Just wondering if your heading back tomorrow would be keen to join you if there is room, look forward to seeing you Sunday if not tomorrow.

Good work on Sunday out there at the track the new berms are awesome and should be a brilliant track come Sunday.

Cheers

I'm not sure I understand the two previous posts. Suffice to say, the new trail is race ready and looks excellent. It finishes with a nice ditch jump off a ramp - it should make for some great action next Sunday.B)[img size=150]

Can't wait for the new DH section ...... noooooooot , maybe they need to put some concrete down and issue lycra at the top , oops I nearly forget i own a DH rig and its alergic to tarmac and concrete .....

Cynic yes wish we could do something to get us moving in the right direction

To those guys (and girls) who took the time to construct the new track at TPS well done, It is great fun to ride and will provide a challenge to race.

Thanks

Your sooo cynical!

of course we have a wotld class downhi9ll track. loving cared for and maintained by the AFCD. In fact a brand new section of trail is being oh so carefully constructed on the downhill section of TMS. Its a wanderful ski shoot line running straight down the hill, no switchbacks or technical sections nothing!, just a straight run down - cant wait to see what it will be like in two seasons!

Thanks for the heads up....... will go and have a look, just a question to all MTBers in Hong Kong who read this, why don't we have a world class downhill track in HK, we have the mountains, resource and the expertise and more than that lots of people who would love to get involved, oh yes its those F#@kers at AFCD , they a have no idea what MTBing is besides it has something to do with a bicycle.... I have had enough of this and wish there was someway we could make "our Home" a great place to ride......

You may be interested to know that a new DH trail is being built at TPS, presumably for the upcoming race on 15th Feb. It looks much longer than the old one as it zig zags down the face of the hillside to the firing range. Much of it is off camber and there are some tricky rock gardens and drop-offs. I rode about half of it very slowly but I can imagine the best riders will really fly down it. There's plenty of potential for high speed crashes and most of the track can be clearly seen from the firing range so it'll be great for spectators. TPS now has 3 excellent DH trails, making it the best spot in HK if you like charging down hills at frightening speeds.
