Foo Fighter - mysterious flying objects A short but fun jumps trail mixed with all sorts of jumps, lumps and bumps.

Everything on the trail is roll-able, there are no compulsory gaps or drops. However, like any jumps trail, if you pick up speed be prepared to catch some airtime! The important thing is to know how to land safely ;-)
