You made it to the other side of the creek--Tech Section 1--yea you! A heaping rock pile and plenty of chunky rock gardens are your reward. Mmmmm, chunky. Slow go or hammer fest, the gardens will test your technical skill along with your tolerance for technical riding. Only through suffering does great riding flow--said a mountain biker, probably. The section through the mesquite forest mellows to make way for an all out sprint at times. This is great section to loop a couple of times with friends.
