Super fast all the way. Through the top ‘bus stop’, then jumping into and out of a bombhole, over some roots onto the middle fire road. Flying on down from there, loads of challenging roots tempt you into braking, then anchors off into the final fast ‘motorway’ section. Sections, berms and jumps are in season here. Super fun and fast too, and a great one to session.
