Jeff Bryson takes the HSB Rhythm RDF mountain bike
quickly across this small drop on Mt. Seymour's "Ned's
Atomic Dustbin". Jeff raced the 2009 BC Cup sanctioned
downhill race on this trail in the Pro-Elite category
and placed second on the podium- just seconds away from
the first place rider.
David Flather, co-developer of the HSB Rhythm RDF mountain
bike, was one of the early pioneers of maintaining this
famous trail. This section right here was actually blocked
completely by large fallen trees. Downhill Dave cut away
some of the trees and made one of the first wooden ramp
jumps/ drop to appear on Ned's. Many unfamililiar riders
of this trail would get to this nicely built wooden ramp
and have a nasty surprise when they reached the top of
it and found there was no down-ramp - this was a drop!
Downhill Dave also performed regular maintenance on the
trail, including creating proper drainage, opening up
new lines and clearing fallen debris.
