That's not the new gap he's talking about. The new one is about 5 to 8ft bigger than the one that dude eat dirt on. Coming off an injury recently I haven't given it much consideration but would love to see the speed from someone else first :eekster:Larry_flint said:
Shoot Big Boulder a PM- he lives up there & could tell you when trails are good, plus he could probably show you around. Be warned, tho- he's gearing up to do a couple of 24 hour races this year, so the pace may be quick.ride the biscuit said:hey, how long after rains do the trails in auburn become rideable?
would anyone be up for showing me around the trails there? (sorry, not going to be hucking any of the big gap jumps) I'm your typical all mountain mang, riding a burly 33.3lb-er and do not mind climbing a couple thou to get to the goods.
I'll be driving down from Truckee...if anyone wants to carpool down and hit the trail in between storms, shoot me a PM.
I concur. I measured it out using my approximately 6-foot long bicycle as a guide and it was about 3-1/2 bike lengths or roughly 21-22 feet from lip to landing.redmr2_man said:it looks like people are actually hitting that, you can see the braking tire marks from landing at 20+ mph or whatever.
that gap is huge!

I agree it sucks that they took out some jumps that were completely off to the side of the trail however there is still plenty of fun stuff to ride. Stonewall/Rocky is always a kick and it has no man made jumps to it. Just sayin..
