While most riders North of the equator have hung up their wheels for the season, some of the worlds best travel throughout the Southern Hemisphere in search of mountain biking's version of the 'endless summer'. Heavy hitters Greg Minnaar, Cedric Gracia, and urban champion Filip Polc arrived in Brazil's port city of Santos to take on some of South America's fastest in the 10th Anniversary of the Descida Das Escadas de Santos, which translates to "Descent of the Holy Stairs". **Apologies, I was misinformed on the translation. It just means "Descent of the Stairs of Santos"****
Thanks again to Marcelo and Juliana for putting on a great race and our sponsors for the project who made the awesome trip possible. I made some awesome new friends and hope to make it back next year!
