Brock is adding shine to this trail on a regular basis and has this to say about his latest efforts.


"I flagged off/closed the newer stepup on Ode. It's safely ridden by those that do that sort of thing, however the tranny is too soft and not finished. I reworked it, took water down to help firm it and pack it, but ran out of water to finish it. I guinea pigged the work and the shape is fine (will get better) but will get beat down if ridden a bunch. 


I'm really OK if folks ride it, but only advanced riders until it firms and is finished but not sure there's a way to keep lesser riders off it...thus the ribbon across it. I just need to take 10 or so gallons and finish it. I'll keep you posted."

It's rideable again. It requires A LOT of speed coming over the rocks, but it's doable. 

Go give'er.




I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself. A small bird will drop frozen dead from a bough without ever having felt sorry for itself.

I still need to follow you off the bottom step down to complete my "ode" experience.

Lee, assuming you're talking about the big jump on the right after the little rock garden that leads into a step-up on the other side, I think the new step-up is more challenging. Haven't hit it correctly yet and even the b-line to the left of the new step-up I sometimes botch.
