Description

This is a very technical downhill. It doesn't flow well but has plenty to humble any rider. There are many features on Blackjack that will test the best of technical downhill riders. Most features have a ride around but the ride around isn't the easiest either. All features are doable though (I'm proof).

This section is not for the intermediate/beginner rider.
