With the Olympic games this past year our industry took a very different look to cycling and racing. Silver medalist, Maja Włoszczowska racing for Kross had been documenting her lead up to the games, and her Road 2 Rio is now available online for free. Buckle in, because the 40min film takes you on a long journey from her home in Poland through a season of racing to culminate in Rio de Janiero, documenting her challenges and progress month-by-month. Her goal was always clear: win an Olympic medal, but along the way she must take on tough UCI World Cup races (including the UCI XCO World Championships where we got a detailed look at her bike), push her limits at the World Championships and accept many sacrifices.
