Newly built by SDMBA and a good addition to the PQ area. Multiple fast sections with lots of small bumps to catch air off of. Fun in either direction.

       Rode this for the first time before hitting cobbles. Was an awesome extra section! Tight with a few little jumps, and about the same climb either way.
