I have done the road twice in the past....never saw the rock on the road.....

Must be something new.... there was snow at the top at the information center, but no jump in the road.

just ended up staying in town and doing some low speed practice & some gravel roads/ alleys (practicing some entry Dual Sport stuff on a 500 lb bike. lol)
