Jojo on the World Cup Podium. (Thank you to Sven Martin for the image)
Our very own Little Bellas mentor, Joanna Petterson, grabbed a second place at the third round of the UCI World Cup four cross circuit. Four cross is an event much like snowboard or skier cross except for on bikes. Four girls race each other around gates, berm corners, and huge jumps to qualify for quarter finals, semi finals, and then, the big show, the finals. Joanna (jojo) did just that in the mud in Leogang, Austria and won a sprint for second place. You can watch a replay of her race here at freecaster.tv Congratulations JoJo on a career best result! Next weekend, she’s competing in the world cup downhill and four cross event in Val di Sol, Italy. You can watch live coverage of all the World Cup mountain bike races and cheer her on at freecaster.tv

We look forward to having JoJo back with the Little Bellas for the August sessions!
