Refaite copieusement en 2016 & 2017 cette piste offre de belles sections de force centrifuge et de bons gros jumps et virages relevés À réserver aux bons pilotes, même si les sauts peuvent être en partie évités, ça reste une vraie DH engagée et technique, avec des sections soit raides, soit rapides, dans les cailloux!

Re groomed in 2016 & 2017, this track give you very good sections with G force, big jumps and big berms! For good riders only. Some jumps can be rollable, but other parts are steep, fast and rocky!
