North Saanich Freeride Park opens!
Phase One of the Freeride park is open!! Took us 1 year with no less than few hundred hours of excavation and site preparation to get to this point.
Kyle Michell and I worked late into the night to mix in some concrete and gravel over high traffic areas.
This 2 man feet only happened with the aid of some luxury tools, tools we wish we had from day one! Diesel powered wheel barrels on skid tracks, these are what you would call Pimp!
So, it took us this long because we did it right, tonnes of behind the scenes work to be done and I think we have reached a 1000 man hours in volunteer time.
Sadly I only have the photos above from last night as someone showed up, shoveled a load then took the camera home. sinneb is his name in secret code so I have nothing of the course! On opening day I will snap some day shots and videos of the track.
In the mean time enjoy this shot of me and a Cow in Switzerland.
When i landed back in Canada the custom agents asked if I visited any farms... I admitted i smacked a cows ass while on a bike ride. I don't think they took me serious but I was being honest!
More park info to come!
