High Point

The WTP long drop. A fast and flowing downhill from the Waiu Parks highest point to the lowest. Start at the Freewheel trig, turn right at the end of the track and cross the Pukeatapu Bridge, and straight onto Super Plus. Stop your time at the trail exit on the footpath at the start of the gracefield offramp (and catch your breath)
