    RYDA, the track is pretty good in my opinion. It needs work to carry a race, but will definitely be fine to host a few blokes having fun for the day.

    Matt, I can't make Saturdays unless they are early mornings (not sure if others are in the same boat), but always happy to help on a Sunday with some notice. Heads up, the iRide come and try day is the very next day too...not sure if that will effect turn out or not.

    Its about bloody time. The top section is horrible, rutted and big nasty rocks everywhere which is really no fun at all to ride. And for crying out loud can we schedule more of these days, a couple maintenance days before the race then letting it fall into disrepair for the rest of the year really isn't good enough considering how much maintenance the XC trails get.

    So will you be attending? The club and DH commitee always attempt to keep frenzy in good shape, but if the people interested in that discipline cant show up to maintain it, it doesnt get done that often. The XC trails have recieved a lot of work due to the fact we have not long ago completed the construction of Turkey. The XC commitee have orgainsed these maintenance days on these trails.

    I road the DH trail on the weekend on a hardtail and it was overgrown in a few parts but felt it was in quite good nick.

    I can sense Broken Bones frustration but the club is committed to maintaining all trails including the DH trail. At some of the trail maintenance days this year we have sent people up the DH track to weedeat the trail. If you believe the trail is not in the condition you would like it please outline the areas of concern and either PM Aussie Pete or post up your conerns. Aussie Pete is responsible for trail maintenance.

    I'd love to help out but alas, I dislocated/fractured my wrist on Sunday and will be in plaster for the next six weeks. Unless you guys need a supervisor I'll have to sit this one out.

    The funny thing is I had my crash on the same section that young fella broke his wrist on at the last runs day. Hahaha

    I don't know what track you have been riding but the top of Frenzy is mad at the moment. Little bit overgrown but the track itself is mint.

    Also I will be attending.

    I'm keen on lending a hand. What tools would you like us to bring? Shovels, rakes? I may be able to get my hands on a brushcutter but no garuntee.
