ROSEBANK / TWIN PEAKS
GRADE: 4 LENGTH: 1KM
BUILT: in 1997 by Fred Christensen, Evan Freshwater and friends as Twin Peaks.
Maintained by Nduro Events.
GETTING THERE: Starts off Pohaturoa Road, 700 metres up from the bridge from Waipa MTB carpark and ends just up from same bridge.
TRAIL DESCRIPTION: This is not a steep track but the narrow chutes combined with tree roots make it technical, especially in the wet.
It is a good one to finish a ride and see if you can whip it faster than the last time - in a very pretty part of the forest with Redwoods.
There are a couple of short pinch climbs with steps that are good for tuning your skills.
Finishes with a stream crossing that caused havoc at the 2010 and 2017 Singlespeed World Champs - of the nearly 1000 riders in 2010, and 499 in 2017, rather a lot went ass over elbow!
