    Abel and I hammered out 8 new rollers on the pump track line today. Much packing help appreciated by Myles and his El Paso friends. They turned out a little bit tall for the spacing ratio (about 14' peak to peak), so we're probably gonna add more dirt to the pits to mellow 'em out a bit. But they're running good.

    i don't know exactly, i was just eyeballing the height.... normally i believe in building one thing then riding it in before moving on to the next, but it's hard to resist when you have a bobcat running. they are not as tall as the roller line in the video. that's a good video clip !

    Reese's Peanut Butter 'n' Dark Chocolate (this dirt is so crazy to work with.... the black clay is like huge chunks of pottery clay, almost unworkable.... then this beige clay that Tony bought is an excellent top layer):

    Great job by Abel, Tony & everyone that made the jam happen. Good to see people throwing down BIG, I just wish I could have stuck around for longer!
    Allied Compound is certainly the most progressive spot in Austin and a great example of what can be accomplished here. I can't wait to see more pics and vid edits come together this week!
