Trying to remember where that is. If it's where I think it is wasn't there a bunch of sand at the bottom that would suck up all your speed and send your wheels every which way?

I believe that is the spot after the first hard option on Roller Coaster.

Yep.. the crossroads. They did a great job fixing up that descent into the jump for the race. You can really carry a lot of speed now whereas before it was more of a free ride drop. Been one hell of a rainy season. :D

Jumping into the pit is even more fun that jumping out of it

Haha, yeah I always looked at things like that as a fun challenge - either way is fine with me.

I like to do a little bunny hop before the drop, land in downhill transition, pump it, and then pop out.  Fun times there.  There is a similar spot to that on the Vortex trail at Santos that is probably my favorite part of that trail.

I know exactly where you are talking about on the Vortex, one of my favorites as well.
