Red Gum

Don't know how everyone feels about this one (top of Red Gum as you leave the Commonwealth games track):



What do people do here? bunny hop the log beyond the drop, or slam on the anchors to do the tight turn beyond the end of it?  Personally, I reckon the log lying across the trail ruins the flow up there.

I took this a couple of weeks ago and today there was actually a fallen tree across the trail at this point. It will probably take a chainsaw to shift it.

I actually don't mind this bit, as I like to lock up the rear wheel to square up the turn (At hi speeds). But understand in what you are saying, it going to be very hard to please everyone out there!

I can live with it. Just thought I'd take a straw poll (which seems to amount to 1  ;D)

I don't mind it... i haven't seen the tree across it, but i nearly always go the other way, so i am climbing up there!
