The boys from Pure Darkness are back at The Garden Route Trail Park, but this time the plans are a bit different. Sam Reynolds has brought two master builders with him, Clemens Kaudela and Nico Vink, to make the massive jumps even more crazy for DarkFEST!
Getting straight to work, adding new lines, tweaking a few things or Downhill bikes and smoothing the eroded lips and landings was first on the cards. The infamous giant step up now has two hipped landings on either side and the right line leads into a left hip on the last jump of the line, which looks absolutely insane.
There are lots more plans to unfold, so keep an eye out for the week 2 update before all the riders come down to shred the goodness!
