Not really mountain biking is it, this really is too smooth a surface (at the moment) and too short a track, real shame, I feel sorry for the designers having to work out something in such an artificial environment. There must be better locations near london, established or otherwise.

Money would have been better spent on a natural point to point route/loop with the change being put into setting up cable or helicopter cameras to give exciting coverage of the event.

And with a little bit of editing by me it reads:

"The London Organising Committee (LO COG) to provide a world-class course in the notoriously flat county of Essex"

Personally 'Oak Tree Drop' scares the bejeezus oot of me and thats just looking at the pics.

I reckon it can be made better as there is still lots of time. The climbs need roughing up a bit surface wise and a few more techy sections added but I reckon it has potential.
