    I am very disappointed, there has only been one "widow maker" so far. There is a widow maker in the Bucca forest North West of Coffs, the WRC rounds used to go right past it but never over it, bunch of overpaid sooks they are. Surely there are more widow makers around the country other than just the two?

    Dunno. I’ve ridden up (alright, crashed on) three $20 hills in three different states. Thinking back now I reckon the one near Cathederal Range was called $50 hill not $20.

    That phoyo is exactly what I was appalled about... year ago that piece of road - through that particular pass... and several similar in the Blackfellow's hand's area - could be traversed in a Holden Commodore wagon... The road has been cut up by weekend warrior tossers going in there when it is wet an cutting the place up - completely unnecessarily IMHO.

    The break for the power lines to Wandella tower at Peak Alone has been freshly dozed but not compacted so the large loose rocks and erosion gullies add to the challenge.

    All the poles were burnt in the fires and the bare wires are lying on the ground.
