OMV to Stay Open

In case you missed the good news, OMV to Stay Open.

There had been talk of shutting down an all too rare pocket of legal single track in our area, but long term closure looks to have been averted.

Rehabilitation work in the area around the track is due to start in July, so please keep an eye out for notices around this and respect any re-routing of the trail.

Full details in the link above. Thanks to Tristania for the heads up.

Northconnex and Synergy Trails will be moving onto the site in late June / early July to start the work. The whole area (all trails) will be closed down whilst the relocation works occurs. This will take approx. 4 months.

Good News
- the beginner trail is going to be better and go through some cool land forms rather than a desert wasteland
- the intermediate (aqua) trails are going to be enhanced and provide a better transition from green to blue.
- Turkey Royale and Lava Flow remain (although hopefully enhanced)
a funky tunnel will be run underneath where the truck are coming in.
- a fly over will be built over the conveyor. These will allow a full loop to be completed safely.
- a pump trail / dirt jumps (and hopefully skills park) will be added.

Bad News
- the whole place is going to be shut for 4 months whilst the work is done.
