Was it "illegally" opened up?
No.

Just to be clear; I'm reading that it is officially open.

Si?   ???

Yesterday at the trailhead picnic table, I heard some riders talking about a crash that "resulted" in an opened feature.   I would not count on this trail "feature" as 'officially or permanent'

Great to hear if it's open!  My friend went down there on the closed feature last week.

It is not officially opened.  Not sure who took down the boards.  I have informed Indy Parks and will be meeting with them this week.

I wonder how many times that guy had to "accidentally" crash into it to get all the tape off?  ;D

I was that friend that went down last week. My front tire caught one of the boards and that resulted in me being thrown into a tree to the inside of the turn. I guess I should sue to get it reopened :D .

While I did not ride it last Friday while I was there (tho it looked open) it did not seem hard to avoid it and I am a newish rider
