Segment 2 - Losing the Scent
Length: 6.3km Avg Grade: 7.3%
Meander through the park crossing many streams to ditch those bloodhounds on your track!
This is a long and challenging segment. Nearly the entire segment is uphill and it includes the infamous "WALL" in its final kilometre.
The route has been chosen with safety in mind, as your average speed over the whole segment is unlikely to be more than 15km/h! Please be aware that there are a couple of flattish sections in the first kilometre, but the road surface and visibility is good.
There are also very brief downhill sections at kilometre 4 and kilometre 5, and these include a couple of corners. Please use these as recovery and think about the many steep inclines still to come! That said, they are very short, and the road surface is good.
