First time at Gawton
I’ve done the first but not the second. The second I’m told is easier but way bigger.
You know there is the big jump line as well?
edit: I should add, some time ago. things have probably changed massively. despite being able to see it from my house I rarely go there now.Posted 7 months agorikleggeSubscriber
As jam bo, I’ve hit the first but not the second. Partly because I was there on my own, but mainly because I didn’t dare, I think it’s pretty big. There’s some videos on their website where you can see some pros hit it: http://www.gawtongravityhub.co.uk/freelapleague/freelap.php
I would say if you are there on your own, take care. The lower parts of Super Tavi are pretty steep and rocky, and certainly when I visited there was nobody else there; it could have been a bit rubbish if I’d properly hurt myself.Posted 7 months ago
Going to Gawton for the first time Saturday, guessing I’ll start with Proper job and work through to Egypt.
What are the road gaps on SuperTavi like to hit? I’ve wanted the Chantel road gap for 2 years but either snow or injury have always stopped me, thinking that 2nd road gap looks similar… If no one there is hitting it for me to watch can anyone comment on speed required etc? Just pedal flat out or go with trail speed?Posted 7 months ago
If you can clear the first road gap on super tavi the second one is way easier. Just looks more intimidating because of the structure that is the take off. I’ve hit it loads of times on my hardtail if that puts you at ease. You’ll have loads of fun at Gawton, I haven’t been since the new stuff has been finished but it looks ace. Hsd and proper job to warm up and get the juices flowing, then super tav, then move on to Egypt. Have fun!Posted 7 months ago
You have to carry speed in the left hander then sneak a pedal in as it’s slightly uphill. If not you’ll have to do a giant bunny hop and hope for the best 🙂Posted 7 months ago
You can case the first one and still get on the pedals and easily make the second one. You’re in for a fun day, gawton is loads of fun.
