      Raw Handbuilt Tech

      Don’t be fooled by the drop at the start of this trail. It is by far the easiest feature on the track! If your riding it blind (first run) take it easy as there are a few sections that could catch you out. It’s probably named dirty laundry for a reason. Skid marks!

      The upper section of trail is loose rock, steep and off camber with a handful of steep corners. Once your into the native trees, it gets rooty, damp and technical. Watch out for the two black water pipes the cross the track immediately after the second road crossing near the bottom of the trail. They can be hard to see as you go from sunlight to shadows.

      At the bottom, only way out is to bike up the forestry road toward Alpha Wha.

      Similar trail in Nelson: Lollipop in Codgers.

      Seemed a bit blown out today. Maybe Friday night deluge hit there.
