Bender is a longer, faster, more minamalist build than Pugsley. The lines are more subtle and complex . Swivel the hips and pump the compressions to unlock the best of this fast route down to the river. There are blue and black rock drops before you cross the fire road and continue on to a seamless transition into the outside loop. Watch this one.  Some of those corners come up fast!
