For the second time in as many weeks, the best cross-country mountain bikers have put on a show in Brazil. After the Cross-Country World Cup began in Mairiporã last weekend, the competition continued in Araxá over the weekend just gone.

You can find reports from the elite women’s and men’s Cross-Country Olympic (XCO) races right here on Escape – courtesy of writer Ryan Simonovich – but if you want to see what Sunday’s XCO races looked like, well, you’re in the right place.

Scroll or swipe on down the page to see Piper Albrecht’s photos from round 2 of the XCO World Cup, starting with the elite women’s race.

And here’s how Piper saw the elite men’s race.

The next round of the Cross-Country World Cup will be held in Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic, on May 24-26.
