    Rode the mini-DH stuff at Rogate today and had a really good day.

    The place is still in it's facillities infancy but the trails are good if a little packed in. Not much fun when busy I suspect.

    Spent most of the day practising drops and jumps – which I sure the Alfine loved – and felt alot better / more confident by the end of the day.

    We're going to try PORC next month as it's slightly closer but I'm looking forward to returning.

    I think PORC is more a dry weather place (clay) and Rogate is more weather friendly (sandy).

    No pictures as I was too busy having fun.

    Met up with some guys off Muddyarses – mandog organised today.

    The runs weren't long (2-minutes maybe) but short enough that the push up wasn't a ball ache.

    There was a 7-year old (well small kid) who was launching off the jumps on his small wheeled trainer bike.

    😀 the runs are about 30 seconds, max

    That's quick from the top!

    ok, maybe 40 seconds from the top 😉
    needs a lot of work in my opinion, and as usual stuff that is built is around near the bottom doubles and has the age old problem of crossing the main line

    I was talking about airtime, obviously

    The best thing about it was the ease in which I could session a short section gradually increasing the run to include more 'features'.

    More a skills honing and play place than 'riding' place – like UK Bike Park.

    Got PORC next and then perhaps a trip to Chicksands.
