It was one of the best Pearce courses this year, and yes, the road gap at the bottom does have a chicken run. Best bit is the first 30 seconds, really fast with a succession of doubles which, if you hit them right, gets you more and more speed, before a massive ski jump launcher into a hyperspeed berm.

Malco was popping off the ski jump in practice for the race but scared himself quite a bit I think. It's not hard at all to go 10 metres off it. Most people were doing all they could to squash it as much as possible. I certainly was.

With a bit of psyching yourself up and watching a few other riders you'll probably be doing the gap anyway, it's not hard....just nerve-wracking the first time. Baracuda Bob was claiming he'd ridden it... witness evidence suggests otherwise.
