Is that the step drop from the wooden platform right at the start at the top?
I bottled it on my HT the first time I ever went, but next time I was on the FS and its fine, and Im in no way inclined to get air under my wheels.
Yup… purely a psychological thing for me.. i have some mental block on that. There’s a similar if not worse rock step on Wibbly Wobbly, that i cruise over, but i think that’s because i’m hitting it mid-trail and momentum and adrenaline take over. I KNOW the VV one i can do… but knowing and doing are not always the same 🙂
Anyway… lets leave it there as it may clog up the thread.Posted 2 years agobenmanMember
I thought that step into Vicious Valley would be virtually rollable?
Had my first go at BPW earlier this week, my fav’s were Dai Hard > Pork Belly > Insufficient Funds.
My Jedi session from earlier in the year all came flooding back when I was popping the drops and jumps 🙂 Didn’t have the balls for the Dai Hard qualifier gap though 🙁Posted 2 years agodeviantMember
Can’t remember what it’s called but it’s a blue at the top (sixtapod?) that starts off the wooden ‘decking’?….easy flowing start, you can then come to a ‘trails cross’ sign they have there and join Hot Stepper….which is bloody brilliant in my opinion and has enough drops to keep even the experts amused, most are rollable if you’re not confident, I did it on a hardtail last week so it’s not beyond anybody’s capability….then at a road crossing switch to Blue Belle which is underrated and takes you through narrow tree gaps, is stacked with berms etc….love it, that can take you to the cafe and it’s a great workout.
I find some of the black a little contrived in that last time I rode them it seemed they’d just dumped huge rocks/slabs all over the place to make it difficult….it didn’t, it made them a chore, Antur had better black runs IMO but a day at BPW is always fun whereas I concussed myself and broke my wrist last time I went to Antur!Posted 2 years agomaxtorqueSubscriber
You’d be fine over the little drop into VV weeksy, i’ve seen you do much bigger drops! The only reason the VV looks odd is because it’s, as you say, so close to the start of the trail. But in fact, they have built the landing up so much now even if you make a total fist of it you’ll pretty much just roll off it ok!Posted 2 years ago
