Gnarly downhill, body armour recommended. Slightly easier than Dirt Diggler, but not much. Flows into 48 Hours and Dopamine. The drops and jump into the gravel pit at the end, including the gravel pit gap jump are about as big as you can get, so beware!

Truck drop needed to Morrissey Microwave towers, then head North along the ridge.
