A main part of a +1km descent, rail the roots is one of the best descents in Stanmer Park.

Starting with a sprint through the trees you'll soon be negotiating tight turns and a plethora of roots. As you progress the gradient increases, testing your nerve as the trees close in.

Enter the steeper section and the roots come back with a vengeance, explore the limits of grip as you pick up speed and rail the last few corners before bursting out into the open field.
