In Episode Two of this series, we took to you Rio de Janeiro, Brazil with Stevie Smith. In episode three, we met up with Bernardo Cruz in his hometown of Ouro Preto.


The journey from Rio de Janeiro to Ouro Preto was nothing short of amazing. The scenic drive left us awestruck as we made our way through winding mountain passes that turned from dense jungles to rolling hills. Just as the sun was beginning to set, we arrived at Bernardo’s trails to meet with him and we got straight to building.


Bernardo is well known for his natural ability to get his bike sideways like no other. We had seen a few photos of his home trails, including a massive jump line he had built; needless to say, we were excited to witness him and Stevie throw down in the air. The scene was incredible: rolling green hills, golden sun, booter tables, and to top it off, Stevie and Bernardo getting rad.


As we wrapped up our last night in Ouro Preto, we had the chance to visit Bernardo’s parents and family. After seeing how tight-knit and supportive Bernardo’s family was, it was clear how he had become such a positive, hard working, and driven athlete. He is fortunate to live in a household full of happy people, and with trails right out the back door.


On that positive note, we left Ouro Preto and headed back to Rio for a few more days to complete some unfinished lines and capture a few more shots. The journey to Brazil will go down in history as the most memorable trip any of us have ever been on, but after achieving everything we set out to do, it was time to head back home.

ARRIVAL is presented by RockShox, in Association with Specialized, Clif Bar and Pinkbike.com, with support from Trek, Whistler Mountain Bike Park and Devinci.

 As an American living in Brazil, I will say for sure that Brazilians are one of the most fanatic group of people when it comes to downhill. OOHHH DOWNHEEL!! AH DOWNHEEL YA?

Its pretty awesome to be around a group of people that are as into the sport as I am. Although they don't have the same equipment we do, its the same fun to them nontheless.

 getting sick in s. america is...shitty. hope they had plenty of cipro. and bernardo's workout spot is cool. gotta love how inventive a guy can get w/ his equipment (even an antique mirror! ) when driving to a dick's sporting goods or a gym isn't exactly possible.

 All is missing for us Brazilians is some propper place with a lift, and bikes that are not four times the price you´ll pay in the US, a talented boy like Bernardo we have. Parabéns . Not all beers in Brazil are watery anymore, like the one you bought, I hope you´ve savored some good cachaças on the trip too.
