Built in summer 2009, Root Canal (formerly known as 423) has been used as a race track for various regional champs, and features regularly on the Aston Hill race calendar.

Straight off from the start you’re over a large table top – one of the biggest features of the track. Getting progressively steeper as it goes down, the track continues into a series of jumps, drops and loose corners, and finally ends up at the infamous J-turns before dropping into the finish.

Is this the trail for you?

Root Canal is a technical downhill trail for more experienced riders that is especially challenging when wet.

Trail surface types

Severe constructed trails and/or natural features. Many sections are continually challenging. Chalk and clay surface which is slippery when wet. Includes extreme levels of exposure and/or risk. Jumping ability required.
