Good thing for Mourão the decision was largely based on the time before this year, because this year Goulão has been quite a lot better :p 

 

Hopefully she can improve her shape, although I do have good hope for that: the transition from cross-country skiing to the MTB World Cups was rather short, one can understand that's not very easy and things should get better now.

 

And good to see the second Brazilian men's ticket does indeed go to Cocuzzi...there was a tiny bit of doubt for a moment, but even though he probably won't end up far in the front, he has had that one moment of brilliance last year where he was suddenly leading the field :d (before a flat tyre...)

Beautiful life story of Luiz Cocuzzi. He lives in a shelter for vulnerable minors funded by his parents and supported by donations and prizes from competitions won by the team. I didn't know him, now I'm going to follow him closely.

It's in Portuguese, but it's worth translating. it's a beautiful story. :BRA

I'm not sure why Emily Batty wasn't named as part of this team. But impressive for Pendrel to be back at it so soon after having a baby.

Simply put her performances were not as good the last two seasons.
