Bussell Brook West is almost entirely composed of logging access trails so it is generally very fast riding. There are some hills and has been recent logging in the north of the map so please be aware of logging vehicles in the area.
The long course has a map changeover. Please read the instructions at registration for the procedure on how this works.
