      Trail layout has changed, new bridge on the downhill section with possibly some new turns. Very dry with some sloppy sandy patches.

      Has some very sandy patches. A lot of the small drops are crumbling due to the heat so might be bigger than you remember. Keep the front wheel up.

      soft sand in places affects steering in corners and stability at the bottom, next to the road - watch out for the fence posts
