SST Build Day Recap

We had a glorious day on Saturday working on the middle of SST/Golden Spike. Thanks to Andrew Trimakas for planning the day, the 35 volunteers who gave up a day off the bike and the Fanatik Crew who showed up in force! We’re loving seeing all of the younger riders and the rad parents who bring their kids out to help these days. Sure, it means you often need to leave early or aren’t quite as productive, but the parents and the kids all seem to really love it.

We ended up getting the area above and below the rock rolls totally buffed and we altered the step up after the big rock roll above the road crossing. The old jump was easily overshot and the corner after was pretty abrupt for the speed. The new step up is much bigger and the line ties directly into the other side of the road. That exit and the section below the road is all new, so please, as always, look before you leap!

Many thanks to Eric Ashley for the great pics and digging all day!
