Catering will be available both days, “The Germans” Ulla & Kurt will be on site filling us with some of the best food you will find at any race along with fresh coffee, teas, soup and more from the Last Lap Café.

Track Description:

1st Wooded Section:
Out of the gate it’s some fun, there is a quick fire-road blast to pick up some speed and a hard right into the woods followed by a banked left hander and a speed bump setting you up for a very fast drifty right with some roots on the quick exit. It gets quite fast now, turning left across a forest path and into a fast right hand turn leading into a smooth chute. A berm to the left sends you across some fun steps/roots and a big berm takes you around to the right. A quick chute with some small jumps, a tricky chicane and into a fast chute leading to a ski jump over a smooth rock garden, two flat turns and a jump into a right hand berm, this shoots you across a technical rhythm section and into a downward spiraling left hand berm, onto the fire-road and straight back into the trees.

2nd Wooded Section:
A tricky, off camber roll in off the fire-road has you bouncing through the stumps and roots. Some difficult corners and small compressions set riders up for a fast paced gully with two closely spaced small drops as the close trees flash by. The bottom of this gully leads into a slight left-right, that is to say, it’s slight when you are going slowly! A short tight chute, a set of rollers and a nice banked turn lead you onto the fire-road and there’s a quick pedal here making it nice and easy to get your speed up for the next section.

3rd Wooded Section:
The fire road gives you a fast entry speed to this very quick section. A small drop and a few small corners make the section technical to get right and has you gripping the bars tight over some rocky patches and into a few rocky steps and a right turn bringing you across to the top of the open section.

Open Section:
This will sort out the men from the boys, all the time every time. The speeds on this section are unbelievable and over some big rocks, keep your eyes peeled for some sneaky lines and faster options. Now loads of brakes, over a few rollers, more braking and a little left right left combo sends you flying back into the trees where you belong. This new wooded section twists and turns down the natural contours and gullies leading down a nice bit of single-track, back onto the fire-road at the bottom before a quick hammering of the cranks to get you across the line!
