 It is in no way a Primarily Downhill section.Difficult to get any flow.If you like stop/start XC it might be your thing.Maybe ride it once but never again.

 "Primarily Downhill" refers to the direction it is generally ridden and its loss or gain in elevation.

It isn't a reference to the type of trail it is.

 Cheers.If a trail has a loss of 1 metre in elevation is it still "Primarily Downhill" ?
