Greg Minnaar's second outing on the DH bike since his return from injury, taking on the Pietermaritzburg Nationals track (60% of the World Cup track). The onboard telemetry tells the tale...

    Hey all as the PMB Track builder - I want to clear up some issues behind the statements made that this is (60%) of the world cup track - what you see here is NOT a world cup track - there are a TON of deviations off the track that will be utilized for the World Cup - this was a national event that went around all the new sections that are being built for the World Cup - so before all of you have hissy fits - wait until the event ... and then you are most welcome to complain as eveyone who doesnt ride the track always does.

    The actual track has a ton of new sections - with the only thing that is the same in this video being the pedal from the tabletops and a bit of the bottom section ...

    Just letting everyone know before they all have a meltdown in front of their PC's like has happened on Dirt's facebook page already.

    Cheers
    Nige - the PMB Track builder and Manager

    Thankfully the Vital readership tends to be a bit more civil.

    hahahaha yeah - anyway - it is what it is i suppose - I have had to weather a storm of keyboard abuse for 3 years already so one more wont matter. hahaha

    I think besides that blasted pedal section (which i cant do anything about and it really irritates me) the track has a number of new changes top to bottom which the riders should enjoy. So I'm keen to see what their views are for this year.

    Nothing you can do? pfft, have you tried building a mandatory poma lift? You could use one of those winch systems so not only do they not have to pedal, but they'll be going 50mph! It's genius.

    hahaha yeah Scott good idea - I put in a proposal for a travelator conveyor belt like the airports use for the pedal ... but the bosses said it would cost too much! hahaha

    Not your typical DH track, but it looks like it'd be a ton of fun.
