Berm of the Week: Farmer Johns
Berm of the Week is back! This week the FJ Trails at Marple, near Manchester gets a look in.
Matt Talbot sent us pics and info about this peach of a berm up at Farmer Johns:
"Been building lots up at our spot recently - FJ Trails at the famous/infamous Farmer Johns tracks in Marple, nr Manchester.
The pics were taken a while ago now...the berm has been ridden and it all works pretty sweet. Just gotta sort the drainage out properly and tweak a few things. The step-up jump out of the berm links in with the upper berm flyoff jump - merging the lines, which then all lead into a big trick jump/step up to finish the lines.
There is only a small crew of us who dig so props to Matt, Eddy, Alex (a.k.a. Yoof), Scott and Chris for the building work... "

If you have a berm you're proud of and think it's worthy to be featured then send photos and some info about it to Billy
Matt also sent news of a jam at Farmer Johns, read on for all the info:
Optic Sundown Sessions
We are having a jam at the trails this Saturday 16th July (weather permitting) that is sponsored by Optic, Electric and Monster Energy. Pretty informal/chilled affair with tunes, BBQ and of course some sick riding and spot prizes for best line/best trick/smoothest rider etc. Its free to come and watch or enter the jam itself, and £5 if you want to camp at the farm. Should be good!
