This is a challenging course. Each section of the course poses its own challenge. After turn 1, you rise slightly, leading into a downhill towards turn 2. The long straightaway has a few small rollers on it, leading into a quick descent, right into a sharp little uphill at turn 3. Then another short sharp uphill takes you into turn 4, where you battle false flats and a headwind (typically) all the way to the finish.
