Custom built by Veritgo Bikes owner Tim Ceci in the mid 90's, specifically to run guided mountain biking trips before Gondola access opened. Around 1.5km long, it's a machine built trail with nice and wide but steeper and rougher terrain than Hammy's. Starting from the summit of the Gondola and stretching through to the mid-way clearing, it also features a lot of rollers and small jumps to build your skills.

      Great track but the lack of rain has left it corrugated in places and some of the berms are a bit gouged. Take care if you've not ridden it before!
