So the first thing to go is...the first wife?

The only bad spot there is the first (used to be 2nd) log crossing right near the beginning of the run (used to be near the end) It was sketchy but doable as an exit ramp, but as an approach, it's steep, narrow and angled so your wheel wants to slide down the log and away from you as you top it--might be a good small project to add a better approach ramp to that? I'm no carpenter but I could maybe help knock something together sometime...
Last I heard, Jecc the TC does not want that feature modified. I recall he stated that he can do it on his Raleigh hybrid, so anybody else should be able to as well.
That being said, I don't enjoy that log, and it was the main reason Dragonball wasn't in the TT.
if it's what I think you guys are talking about, there's no way jeff did that on his bike...I got 10$ says nobody other than maybe a trials guy could hit that thing in the opposite direction and clear it... he must be thinking about something else...
As for doing the stunt at the beginning of the dragon ball section (used to be the end) now that is fun to do "backwards" and very do-able. It will probably need to be rebuilt in the next year as it looks like it is getting a bit rickety. Perhaps Reid's next build...?

...ok I guess you guys know better. I have never tried it, but I have endo'd going the old way a few times...right off the edge and pogo'd on my front wheel before flipping it. There used to be a rock three quarters buried right next to where my head used to land...
