OK, I think I'm going to wage in to this battle with my humble view.
Firstly, getting well soon proflexforever, its never good to hear about someone getting hurt badly on the hills. Glad that u haven't done any permanent damage.
Now on to the raging topic of the jumps. Now in the interest of fairness, i will start with the "rollies" (People not in favor with the jumps). I can kind of see where you are coming from, it is probably a bit silly to have a hole in in between the take-off and the landing, they do tend to eat your front wheel should you put it in there. Maybe the trail should have stayed as it was, it was pretty fast, but in my opinion it lacked a little flow with corners being a little tight, but other than that was good.
On the other end of the stick, we all want he sport to progress, incorporating jumps into the trail adds a technical value many may not have or need to improve on. But it is down to the rider to assess whether the feature ahead is within their ability. I am fortunate that I find not a lot really challenges me in the surrey hills when it comes to all out technicality so it probably wouldn't have fased me.
To those who have come on here to TROL (yes if u are arguing with your key board you are a trol) about the work, get a life or better get some balls! That's not aimed at your riding as i appreciate that everyone started somewhere, but more in you actions. Go up there and take part in the digging, contribute to what the trail should look like, dig a chicken line that is fun to ride rather than moan at what has been left. At the end of the day, you are not paying the trail builders to build and maintain the trails, and until then they are not really going to give a s**t what you say or think. By arguing on here you gain nothing. If you, in fact we, the Surrey Hills cycling community are proactive then we all get a better experience.
As oldmansi said, dont blame the trail builders, they put it their in the first place, u should be thankful. They have put a lot of hard work into the trails up there. if you see something new, stop and have a look, then move on. basic health and safety, I'm sure you have all come across it in your offices/workplaces.
p.s. many a jump has been ruined by people rolling over the lips, breaking and making them flat, that's probably why they put a hole....
p.p.s. to the man who pointed the ranger towards this thread, well done. you have achieved c**t level 12; the highest of all c**t levels. i couldn't think of a more back stabbing thing to do to the rest of the mountain bike community.
