Some people have questioned the course profile of the MTB55km course. “Is it really all downhill for the first 35km?” The answer is absolutely YES (except for the odd 2 minute climb followed by a fun one minute descent).
Other people have asked about the grade/difficulty of the MTB course. The answer is about a 50:50 mix of grade 1 and 2, with very small sections of 3. The scale used is 1 = Easy – 6 = Extreme.
