This 'thing' they jump off from (I don't know the downhiller lingo for it) is like 2 meters tall!  Even the chicken run looks rough to me.

This shot shows what the area looks like where these guys need to land.  There is quite a drop which the camera just can't capture - under the wheel.

This guy (above): it was his very first jump off this 'device' and he aced it!

Think he is Shaun Thomlinsin or something(spelling!) Well done dude.

I guess next weekend this spot (in Jonkershoek, Stellenbosch) will be totally over crowded...during the various runs.

 

Had to compress these pics from 3meg to 30kb, so pics don't look soo hot here.

It does look nice but how many of you that is oohing and aahing have seen roam? Those guys will do these kinda drop-offs on hard tails with slops.

LOL. Those guys in Roam are insane! And fast, I wanna ride that Whistler Park.

Does anyone know what is/has happened to that bike park in Somerset West?
