196 m

Digg’r is a short, intense, rocky, technical trail built on a farm field-hedgerow that has minimal slope. The rocks and farm debris are used to create various attack/feature sections, sometimes with multiple lines, and includes a feature known as the tractor tire. The size of rocks/elements vary, as does the width of the trail. The elements are tightly packed together requiring the rider to stay on the attack for the entire 196m of trail. Approaching the trail from the south, heading towards the river, allows the rider to take advantage of the gentle slope to help carry momentum. Half-pedal-strokes can be thrown when amidst the rocks, but the trail requires strong bike handling skills to maintain momentum and complete a clean run.

This trail is challenging for beginners but is low risk making it perfect for those looking to practice their skills riding through a rock garden. Riders who conquer Digg’r will be rewarded with a thrilling and satisfying ride.
