Fast blast. Starts flat with gentle turns then dodge the tree and onto the rebuilt table jump. Keep your speed through a few holes and into a rollercoaster like section. Hit the bridge( careful when wet) and either take the tight red switchbacks or the black root roll/drop (trickier in the wet). Then a straight followed by a nasty final Rooty corner.

      Large holes are starting to form in the troughs between rollers. Be careful as they are covered by puddles and some are deeper than they seem
