That section is called The Doldrums and is actually tougher than it looks with all the false-flats.
Also was on the historic Meech Lake map from the 80s.

It is a decent climb at start going north. Good place to practice technique. They had done a good job breaking up the ice.

Ahh the historic Meech Lake map. I remember being at a National Training camp and we had to run a 5-6km course on that map. Ted's instructions were 'this is to prepare you for racing in crappy terrain on a crappy map'. He wasn't wrong.

Such trainings were the norm growing up in New Brunswick back in the day... (thankfully improving somewhat) now)
