      It rode very well this afternoon before the rain started. Tacky dirt, minimal puddles and no hazards. Very fun ride!

       Very difficult switchbacks, steep, tight, one after the other. Inwould rate it black and very focused on downhill bikes - my enduro felt as not capable enough (nor my skills!). Had to walk many of the switchbacks. So beware, only if you have very good skills. Not exposed, just tough switchbacks and tougher than I expected.

       Its suposed to be double black.. but we built it on a way that is mostly blue and yes is not a track for beguiners or the "ordinary weekend warrior" you need some advance skills in some places but that all that can be overcome by finding the flow from the trail..

      Ride on man and have fun ✌️

       Einen grossen Dank an die Trailbauer. Sie hatten mit viel Trailbauaufwand haben das Maximum aus diesem steilen Terrain herausgeholt. Der Trail ist sehr spassig und flüssig zum fahren - das Endurobike reichte für mich locker aus um den Trail zu befahren.
