Terrain and Difficulty
It is best for an advanced skilled rider with good fitness. The total uphill is approx 700alttitude meters. Most of the climb is pushing the bike uphill in some sections you will need to carry the bike. The downhill trail has great variability and offers all kinds of terrain to enjoy. The line has a very dynamic character and it smoothly changes from technical steep, rocky sections into the fast trail with little drops and jumps back into the tech parts again. The bottom part is slower and about fun rolling over big smooth boulders and riding across wooden bridges and paths.
