       excellent XC loop with multiple challenges and B lines. the place does certainly make you work for your descents. good berms and switchbacks with some fun rock gardens to unwieght over on the DH sections and some good tech climbs. the sand base makes it an excellent option for riding if everywhere else is rained out. however if the rain is super heavy probably just give riding a miss all round as there are some very slippy rocks. make sure your tyre pressures are dialed in as the place can bump you around a little if you ride on the more inflated side.
