Ingezonden (

Team, along with the rest of the mountain biking fraternity, got their World Cup season under way in  Pietermaritzburg, South Africa last weekend.

In the two videos below, we take a look at the team’s bike for the year, the Nukeproof Scalp, and the changes it’s undergone for 2012. In the second it’s time to get down to racing. With the inclusion of Al Bond, who was nursing a broken collar bone but still putting his body on the line, they were looking to start the new season on a strong footing.
