The kenso trails are basically split up into two sections:
– hilly wooded trails area
– open sand pit area
In the open sand pit area there are some sandy hills to climb and a huge oval track, but the main cool thing is an existing tabletop jump which was a total piece of shit. Maybe it was good at one point, but it’s so beaten down now. The take off was basically rolled over so there was inverse curve to it, and the landing was the same way. Inverse curve and too steep. I doubt even a modern dirt bike could’ve jumped it as it was. It was also 25′ to clear it.
After trying to jump it a bunch it was obvious it needed some work, so Adam and I went down there with some shovels and fixed it up. The take off now has an actual lip, and the landing is 5′ closer and mellower. So it’s a 20′ total gap.
For us on a 175… Middle of 3rd gear to clear it.
Oh, and we made a 2nd little jump after the 1st which will be fun once we make the take off bigger.
