The new red Fort Bill track
Those that have ridden it from our club say the red rating is a bit on the under-estimating side compared to say the Laggan and Golspie blacks that we ride regularly! Not wanting to put you all off but it might be a bit tougher than it looks in that vid. The penalty for getting it wrong on some of the shore sections would probably qualify you for flying pay before you impact. I hope to give it a shot soon.Posted 8 years agoNorthwindSubscriber
Yeaaaaah. Watching the vid, it doesn’t look too difficult, your standard glentress red runner should be OK as long as they keep the head and don’t get carried away… But the penalty for failure is going to be a lot higher than the average red. That, and all that boardwalk is going to be new to most folks, and throw in the weather to boot, and distracting views… There’s going to be some pain 🙂
Watching it, I did think it could do with a bit more width in places, not because it needs it to be ridden but because it’s got huge long single-bike-wide sections that some people will want to absolutely bomb down, and others will mince. It’d be good to have passing places. I can’t wait though, have to ride it…Posted 8 years agofishaMember
To me, it looks like a Red-Downhill track as opposed to the Red-XC tracks at the likes of the 7 stanes and whatnot. So I dont think it compares too directly, and it will be tougher.
It certainly looks like the penalty for getting it wrong could be some serious air time, a lot of the jumps look like blind take offs.Posted 8 years agomeikle_partansMember
