I must be old and crabby, but does every national track have to have the same damn jumps? Seems most every track now has an uphill triple that looks the same or damn near the same as the other tracks. Or is this a uphill triple followed by the same downhill triple...

First High Point, now Red Bud. Next Southwick will replace the sand with clay... where will the madness end?!? Thankfully, Unadilla will always be a natural terrain, unprepped, grass based track.

Red Bud has had Larocco's Leap for ages man.

I like MX Culture's idea, the new one is made to hit from the other direction and is a step down. That would actually be pretty awesome if so! A huge, blind step down would be so gnarly to hit the first time. The "landing" does seem pretty steep though, who knows!

Meh. Not at all sure how that's supposed to work. But I agree, starting to see the same uphill triple on every track. I like the big downhill jump at Ironamn.

Could they be moving the jump and just left the original jump there until they complete the new one? Then use the old dirt in a new way in the same location?

I believe the one on the left will stay and the original will be taken down for a new larger grand stand

This sounds right judging by the photo. Is the long table top still there or was this built on that?

the table headed downhill was still there at the open ride a few weeks back. What everything looks like now? Your guess is as good as mine

Track is same as always except instead of left after the leap to the finish, you take a 180 left and traverse on left side of leap in the lane where you can see that fresh dirt to downhill, then another 180 back to hit the leap twin. You can see on the far left that the whoops and table after the whoops are still there. I don't think you guys have a clue how much real estate is in that corner or that area. They've used that portion after the leap many times for the pro races in the past. Who knows. I'm riding there Sunday so I'll let you know.

This for sure makes most sense. Take the leap up the right hand side, jump back down through the middle, then jump back up on the left hand side...

If that was the case, that's a hugely unforgiving landing, especially for a blind jump.

They both look like take off lips to me.
