Just to confirm there are NO wooden kickers being added to any part of the track.  ;)

top half of corkscrew into bottom half of sheepskull with a fire road sprint is gonna be more of a XC race. top half of corkscrew has gotta be about 4-500m away from bottom half of sheepskull going along the fire road!!! maybe you mean top half of flatland as that comes out about 200m away from sheepskull.  :P

The next race is only one track will not be linking up with any other tracks.
This is Mini Downhill not Superdxc  ;)

6inch stallions are best suited for fod. Its the angles of a dh bike you need, not the travel on any track at fod.

Everyone will be using 8inch downhill bikes so dont worry.

So what is the track actually being used?

there is not really that much pedaling, just standard off the line couple of strokes to get bit more speed in places and ov course over finish line.

but as said its the dh bike angles needed but not travel, plus its not steep there at all so its really all about pumping and keeping speed.
