Who knows how knarley it will be. There are supposed to be 2x black, 2 x red / blue.. hopefully the main bit of the vid is the blue..we will see I guess. Paul at UKBP mentioned once that they always start with the big man made wide trails as they take longer and require machinery. Phaps that is the approach here and that is what you are seeing first. I love woods too but if you have aver ridden Moelfre you will know that blasting a barren welsh hillside can be pretty intense!

Mixing it with rev for a weekend would be my idea.. that has some tasty wooded stuff by the looks of it.

...could also mix in a pearce track uplift as that would be on the way back.

Yes, looks a bit more extesive than revolution bike park as well.

I know these hills, and they are essentially old slat mines, so maybe they have flattened out a bit of them. The video did make them look slightly tame and not very techy, though hopefully they are the blue/red.

Can't wait to get here.

according to the fb group they are the tamer runs.
i think they said it was easier to film those bits hence the footage.
