The eagerly awaited Track 4 at Gawton Gravity Hub will open on Monday 7th May...but IT'S NOT OPEN UNTIL THE 7th OF MAY!!!! There will be an ‘official’ opening some time in the summer, hopefully to coincide with the start of the uplift service and the hut opening. But they’re going to have a ‘soft’ opening to get it ridden in and give the track building team the chance to tweak it a bit over the next couple of months.
Unless something goes seriously wrong, the new track will be open to ride on Monday the 7th of May. This will follow the final dig day on April 29th and safety work and a formal inspection. They are asking that when you ride it for the first time, take a roll or even a walk down to check it out. The track will need some time to settle in and there will inevitably be things that need fixing and tweaking, so if you spot anything or have some constructive feed back then let them know.
A big thanks is due to everyone who has made this happen over the last year... just a couple of weeks now and still 6 days to enter the track naming competition for updates make sure you keep an eye on their facebook page at Gawton Gravity Hub

Felt said on: 30 April 2012 09:05TRACK 4 OPENING POSTPONED: After a great deal of thought, we regrettably have to announce that we won't be able to open the new track at Gawton on Monday the 7th May 2012. Some of the heaviest rain on record in Devon and gale force winds have meant that working conditions have been too hazardous over the last week, especially this weekend, for any significant work to take place and hardly anyone turned up to dig (thanks to those that did). The quantity of rain has meant that newly dug parts of the track, especially berms, have become water logged and unstable. If they were to be ridden in their current state they would be destroyed and would only need to be rebuilt again.
