      Top half of hero is completely blown out no fun to ride. Saw multiple people get pinch flats just fast rolling B line. A line is pretty much impossible to hit due to the rocks on the up and down ramps and you cant get the speed needed due to the poor track quality. Needs to be worked on big time. once hero goes into the pine plantation it is fine however. The lower half of hero is closed now however you can shred kelly instead which is just as good
