Canada’s fastest cross country racers are in Brazil to race the first World Cup of 2022. The South American start to the season is a rare chance to race on a completely new track. The Pivot Cycles-OTE team previewed the upcoming course in Petrópolis, known as the Henrique Avancini Track after famous Brazilian XCO racer of the same name, while in town for the Cimtb “mini-World Cup” preview event.

Gunnar Holmgren, who had a big start to his season in the Citmb XCC event, joins Marc Andre Fortier and Raphael Auclair to preview the course in Petrópolis. It looks a little wild, with rain slick mud, big drops, steep climbs and fast descents.
