Yup! Although since I was pretty much going as slow as the truckers uphill, their weight gave them more momentum on the downhill, but they kept hitting their brakes for some reason, imagine that , so I passed 'em.

Also those people that pass you five times because they keep stopping for stuff while you just keep truckin' along.

Slower speed doesn't always mean a longer trip.
