  • Global Ranking

Steep, technical downhill with a deliberately low key approach to the build. It is natural and raw and will change as it gradually wears with traffic and weather.

This is a serious grade 5 - once it gets steep it stays steep through to the end, so don't take someone down this track in gym shoes and a $400 hardtail. It wont end well.

When the gradient eases there is an old school gap jump, with a B-line to the left. The jump doesn't have much flow so needs a reasonable amount of speed going in to clear it smoothly. It is not rollable, so don't try that!
