On the Pulse is highly technical downhill trail in Rostrevor and boasts some serious boulder fields, drop offs and the odd gap jump to challenge the best of us. Your arms will be tired but your adrenaline levels will be sky high once you conquer this challenging trail.

 I wouldn't grade it as a proline, at best it would be a red grade in the portes du soleil.

 Also be aware that the trail in the race videos is only built for the races. It has to be closed up after the race. On the pulse aka DH2 is only the stone man made trail, not the natural sections with the jumps. Frown
