Made famous by Tracy Mosely in episode 3 of the making of BikePark Wales series, Vicious Valley is a very tight, very fast red trail that has been surfaced to roll fast and be ridable in all weathers. Don't be lulled in to a false sense of security though, there are plenty of roots to catch you out and a road gap for those who fancy it.
