The first race of 2014 is due to go down on the 16th of March; John is already out crafting new sections for the race to spice things up a bit! Entries are available online via the Boarderline Events website, click for more info.
We will be open this weekend (8th and 9th March) then closed Monday to Friday (10th to 14th March). The park reopens for practice Saturday the 15th with the usual £7 day pass or £1 for members. All members must present a card with valid date membership at the farmhouse when signing in
Finally John has advised there will be some local track closures so keep an eye out and do not attempt to ride anything new or under construction, there is a reasonable chance you may run John down and he doesn’t take well to that!
Mike at Borderline has released the dates for the 2014 FJ Race series, online entry will be available shortly for this push up race series at the farm. For more details head over the Racing section or check out Borderline Events.
In other unrelated news, many people ride FJ’s but not as many are locals who dig, or are willing to ride in less than favourable conditions. Brian “Mad Monk” Monks is a man who isnt going to let a little bad weather stop him! Check this vid and have a look at his Youtube channel for many more FJ vids. Big up the Mad Monk!
Ok after a lot of thought and deliberation (and the fact that the Calendar is so full) we have gone with August 23rd/24th!
Hopefully some warmer days !!!
Happy 2014 to all those trail fiends out there! We are looking to have some dig days over the coming weeks / months down the dirt jumps to sort things out ahead of the 2014 trails season. Normally the work falls to me, Matt and Dave however it would be nice to get some others involved to share the load!
We will have a lot to do as I imagine all the tarps will have been blown off and the biblical rain has probably put pay to any take offs/landings. We had some good times last year and have some new stuff to perfect / finish off for 2014, a little effort now will mean a big reward come summertime!
Dig dates and further info will be posted on the trails facebook page and we are looking to start this weekend (probably Sunday). In the meantime here’s a vid on board with Matt, roll on summer time!
Have a good NYE and we look forward to seeing you to get down and dirty in 2014!
The park is open from 9.30am everyday so you got no excuses not to thrash those new shinny xmas presents! Pop into the farm house to see John or Jill for a pass!,
So, after two years neglect I am finally getting around to sorting the Farmer Johns website out into something more useful. To help make the site look sharp I need your help! Specifically I am looking for some decent over view shots of FJ’s and decent video / helmet cam footage of races / tracks so that folk can get a feel for what we are about. Also if anyone has experience with graphic design for websites that would be great; I can handle the web design part but could do with someone who can knock up a detailed park layout map!
Have a look at the below and if anyone has any of the items listed please drop me an email:

Obviously I will credit all contributors accordingly!! I have loads of pics of the dirt jumps but need help for the other stuff, this is your chance to help John out and also get your work published / noticed. Youtube / pinkbike / vimeo links welcome
1) Photos of the main DH track / night race track / rooty death track / Champrey tribute track
2) Decent quality helmet cam videos of each of the above that give a good overview of the tracks
3) Decent quality edits from recent race weekend
4) Good overview photos of the race weekend festivities,
