A Moss Piglet, or a tardigrade, is one of the most resilient creatures on earth, able to survive the most extreme conditions. The Moss Piglet track is exactly that, breaking off the Sprint Warrior, it takes you over two big tables before dropping into a gnarly, off-camber, raked-in line through the forest. This line is sure to please the purist but, to finish with a bang, this continues into the jumps track which features two step downs, three massive tables and, Empire of Dirt’s pièce de résistance, the “Surgeon’s Table. A bit o’ gnarly, followed by a bit o’ finesse.
