DH3 is currently the last section of the famous Tokai DH line, which has hosted several races over the years. This flatter lower section of trail makes up for its lack of corners, purposely omitted to maintain speed, with numerous features. If you hit them all well you'll spend quite a bit of time in the air. Beware as you do have to gather yourself swiftly for the take offs as they come thick and fast. From the big berm on level 2 keep to the right hand line and start with a table top, a step down and two more table tops before a hip to the right and a fast section beside the jeep track punctuated by a gap jump. From here, you cant relax until the end. Two smaller gaps start the progression session before a few drop offs lead you to the big one - a several meter long gap with a take off over a meter above the ground. Don't case this one! From here, things calm down with a few more smaller ski jumps and gaps before a couple of low bermed corners lead into the quarry area. This is step down city. The first takes you down to the quarry floor and is followed by a step up hip and a brief roll to the final step down. This is DH 3 for now. Ride up and repeat!
