      Mostly dry and running ok. The steeps at the top are very deeply v-rutted making them extremely difficult to clean.

       The last drop is indeed a doozy, but I was down it before I had time to panic brake! There is also a road gap that I wasn't expecting, shortly after a jump after a steep berm! All good fun.

       I was just as slow to the brakes so cleared the drop before my fingers had time to death grip. Now for anyone one with faster reactions than me god help you. but if it was easy we would be doing something else.
