This section isn't this hard to ride, it starts with very cool "zick-zack" berms that are so much fun to ride. However, there's a smaller roadgap (compared to other roadgaps) that is about 2 meters high and the distance you're jumping over is estimated 3m or a little longer. In the worst case you could go around the road gap but it's definitely not made for that (you know, like when you're standing in the landing and the list goes on and on...). I chose the double black diamond to "scare" the ones not riding features like this. But if you have fun pushing your limits a little further and have fun riding those obstacles, you should give it a try!

TAKE A LOOK AT THE LANDING first because just right after you land, there's another berm that you should be prepared for!

[Deutsch]:
Dies ist die alternative Line zum Haupttrail, die ein kleineres Road-Gap beinhaltet. Wer sich nicht an größere Features wie Drops usw. traut, sollte diesen Abschnitt meiden. Zwar könnte man das Gap notfalls sicherlich umfahren, andererseits stellt das für andere Fahrer ggf. ein Risiko dar (ihr kennt das ja, wenn jemand in der Landung steht, usw.).
Wer aber Spaß an solchen Obstacles hat, sollte es sich auf jeden Fall einmal anschauen! Der Drop selbst befindet sich ca. 2m über der Landung (was beim ersten Mal vielleicht einschüchternd wirkt, aber wenig im Verglich zu anderen Roadgaps ist) und die horizontale Distanz, die für eine saubere Landung überquert werden sollte, liegt geschätzt bei 3m, vielleicht auch etwas mehr...
Wer sich überlegt, diesen Drop zu springen, sollte sich unbedingt zuerst die Landung anschauen, da direkt darauf eine Anlieger-Kurve nach links folgt.

Access Info

Right behind the "hip jump", there's another jump and just behind that jump, the trail starts on your right.

[Deutsch]:
Direkt hinter der Hip/Steilwand-Kurve kommt ein Sprung und hinter diesem Sprung geht es rechts (ebenfalls über einen kleineren Sprung) runter.
