Just updated the trail with the new alignment to avoid a closed section of the trail.

Trail is clear of all fallen trees and is riding well. New log feature has been added at the lower end.

Trail Heat Wave
When I was riding this trail and doing the commentary, I said I was on a trail called Sobercoaster. This was not right, I was on Heat Wave. Sorry for the confusion!

Lots of large trees down over the trail. Best ridden as a climbing trail now until the fallen trees are cleared.
