The tempo changes dramatically as you start the testing climb on the other side of the river crossing. There’s no chance of carrying speed here, as it starts steep and rocky with some very tight turns. Things ease slightly in the middle section, before a final steep snap leads you gasping out onto the open hill. There’s some respite downhill before a better chance to recover (and regroup) for a short spell on contouring forest road.
