Fort William’s 2.8km track is a flat-out adrenaline ride that never fails to disappoint. We jump onboard with the @Santa Cruz Syndicate very own Laurie Greenland and Jackson Goldstone for a course preview of the ‘classic’ downhill venue of Fort William in Scotland.

There are still the familiar rock gardens, big slabs, huge jumps and the tight forest zone to contend with on the way down the course before you get to the full-on long motorway section and the masses at the finish line.
Getting the perfect run here is a delicate balance. The track is often at its very best the day after a rain storm which helps keep the dust down up top but doesn’t saturate the tricky wood section. Still is perhaps the most desirable as the flat-out across the top of Aonach Mòr no more needs strong gusts than a motorcycle needs an ash tray.
