Called "Wind Sprints" or "Sprints" because there are a series of punchy climbs with a flat to rest in between when ridden east to west. The downhill connection to the BST is marbled and loose. Look for a water tank with a small drop on the left of the DH and do not miss the skinny trail connection to BST on the right or you will be giving away elevation.

 Nearly impossible unless you have amazing balance, and thighs of steel. The climbs are like 5% over loose rock. And the downhill isn’t great to justify it. Definitely harder than moderate at the very least.
