Big tricks, lots of wood, lots of stunts. Reworked for 2016, gone are the wooden stunts made out of 2 X 2 and rotting twigs, in their place are huge gap jumps with serious consequences. The berms and jumps are so well built you'll want to get off your bike and stroke them. It now kicks out onto Sidewinder instead of the lethal road exit.
