STRAIGHTline Map

STRAIGHTline is high octane, technical ride from top to bottom. The trail shares the first few corners with the rest of the bike park tracks however it soon takes its own descent as you dive right into one of the most technical rock gardens found on the World Cup circuit. After the rocks you better buckle your seat belt and hang on as you quickly find yourself dropping an 8 metre step down at high speed followed by some big gaps leading into the 13 metre "Full Gas" bridge. You don't get a second to rest as you now head straight into the first root section. Leaving the roots you can now let the breaks go and get ready for the 3 big table tops which lead the rider into another section of roots. Multiple line choices on the next berm section will let your hands rest before heading into the third section of roots with the famous "plunge" drop. After the plunge its time to let the breaks go and get ready for the second rock garden. Multiple lines present themselves in one of the gnarliest sections on the track. It's time to let the breaks go again as you line up the big step down and head into the 10 meter finish bridge.
