Actually it looks freaking sweeeeet! Three tracks, the blue run looks the best for mountain boarding, still some annoying slate patches though. Waiting for them to get to me about boarding there.

Jump track in the making too, looks just as sweeeet.

Looks too flat to me. When will they learn?

Looks fine to me, it's one of the few downhill specific tracks in Wales, probably only this, Cwmcarn and Llangynog, this being the only one without tree roots. Only one way to find out though, there looks to be enough traction to pump up those tires. Got to do Pen y Fan first though.

yeah given the rocky terrain i think you will find it harder than you think to keep up the momentum, not to mention you will either have to ride rather loose trucks to take those burms near the top or have to hop for your life!

definitely potential. Nothing 10's (at about 10psi) couldn't handle. Snowboard boots boots, bindings and LEAN will get you through those berms no trouble. Gradient is a difficult one to judge as gopro's and other fish eye cameras make everything look flat.
If it's a goer i will be up for a ride at some point, got friends in Conwy and family in Pentraeth and Menai so not too far away. Shame chris of scuz mountainboard magazine has gone to the dark side of mountainbikes as he's just up in Pentraeth too.
Looks like real downhill, lovely! :)

Yay, positive thinking. It's definitely steeper than it appears. How convenient that you have family in Anglesey, suddenly you can't wait to visit them :D I'm up to doing it whenever, Blaenau is a bit further than I remember, almost an hour and a half I think. Still waiting for my brakes, arghh, apparently they are done.

Very nice, looks sweet! There's a 12km track planed for some time in 2013 in Belfast, if it's anything like this I'll be over the moon ^_^
