Default Caution! New Features

My bro and I put in about 4 hrs each on Cambodia today. We put in some waterbars; actually just one waterbar and then a landing in case you decide to jump said waterbar. It's pretty difficult to double the two. I gave it four good attempts and came up short on all of them. Lip to lip, the gap is about 12 ft but I'm probably going to move it back a couple to make it a bit easier. Everyone just be careful because it's right after a corner and you can't see it until your right up on it. After you exit the Cambodia extension and start downhill through the "S" turn, its right there before the sandy corner. Everyone should be able to roll it easily because we didn't put hard lip on it.

Always nice to have new features. That place needed serious help. Your pile of chips worked ok for a time. Did your bro find a bike?

Mike and I worked on the waterbar on Cambodia yesterday. We closed the gap to about 9 ft and it is MUCH easier to clear. Hit it 3 times yesterday without too much problem. It's still a little tricky due to how close it is to the corner. It's also easy to roll if you don't like your tires leaving the ground. We also added another waterbar a little closer to the sandy corner. Hopefully this will help keep that corner from becoming Pensacola Beach in the summertime.
