This is how it starts out. Laying out plastic, adding plywood on top, sheet by sheet, and starting to bring in the dirt.

That process continues until the whole floor is covered.

After the base is done, then work starts on bringing in larger quantities of dirt and jump construction.

Here's an overall view of the nearly-completed Newcastle course.

On the gate.

Chad Reed (Vodaphone Honda) took a pair of wins (the Super X series uses a two-race format for the main events), for the overall.

    I like the clean look of the Fox gear, just change the pink to red or yellow, on his right however, Brayton looks like he's been splattered in blood, just a mishmash, especially from the stands, which looked completely empty! Happy for Hansen for putting in a good showing.

    Looks like CR has adapted to the CRF rather quickly. Good to see Hansen getting a head start on SX and doing well.
