Is anyone really hitting the new gap jump on the confluence? I did the clemme loop yesterday and noticed the new gap (on the riverside of the trail) and would love to photograph someone hitting it. Let me know!

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:

Thanks jeng! You are right, that is not the one I'm talking about. I'll have to go back and take a few pictures...

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.

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!

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. :D

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. :eek:

Anyone else find it ironic that there is a 20ft gap here but they tore down 2/3rd's of the jumps on culvert and the whole other trail? We brought shuttles but didn't even bother. My friend from the bay area thought it was boring with all the jumps missing.

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..

I'd never noticed it before. Nobody I ride with has noticed it before. It is defintely something you notice. I wanna see someone hit it!

props to your friend though, thats a big gap.

Yeah before the lip was built up more it wasn't as noticeable. My friend had to pedal his ass off to get enough speed for it too. Kinda just floats you over but still def. a overshoot better than under situation haha.
