In our final race run GoPro from Pietermaritzburg, Loïc Bruni illustrates why he’s hotly tipped for World Cup honours this season.

There’s pure raw and unadulterated pace from Loïc as he powers his way to the then second best time of the day. The Frenchman eventually dropped to fourth, but a World Cup win may just be around the corner for the 20-year-old Lapierre Gravity Republic rider.
