Last years U23 XCO World Cup overall winner Petter Fagerhaug is teaming up with the Czech XC marathon legend Kristián Hynek to race his first Cape Epic. This video takes you behind the scenes and gives you an insight into how Petter prepared himself for the world's toughest MTB stage race at home in Lillehammer, Norway.

Petter joined team Corendon-Circus for the 2019 season and the Cape Epic will be the first race for him in his new colors.

This video is the first of a series that aims to provide you with insights into how the new generation of young Norwegian mountain bikers train. It'll showcase the close cooperation between riders, coaches, the Norwegian School of Elite Sports, scientists at the University College and the cycling club in Lillehammer.

 I find it interesting that he's gone to Corendon-Circus, which is essentially all about 1 rider (MvdP). Is he planning to do some CX/ Road as well as XC?

 Cucumber scene if weird for sure but so is taking the chairlift. Thanks for the XC article, I just about soiled my lycra when I found it between the DH and enduro.
