EXCLUSIVE: Team MBUK preview the new jump trail at Bike Park Wales

Ahead of the official opening this weekend, we check out the new Popty Ping trail at Bike Park Wales

The new Popty Ping trail at Bike Park Wales opens this weekend and we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek.

Popty Ping (meaning microwave in Welsh) is the name given to Bike Park Wales' new blue graded jump trail. Sitting between 'Hotstepper' and 'Terry's Belly', the trail has been designed to give beginner to intermediate riders a place to hone their skills before progressing on to the bigger jumps on the A470 line. It's packed with tabletops, hip jumps and berms to keep any airtime junkie satisfied.

Features editor Al and staff writer Ed had the chance to go and ride the trail last week, check out their top-to-bottom headcam of the trail and their GoPro highlights below.

Stay tuned for a 'How To' on getting the most from the new trail in next month's issue of the mag.
