We catch up with the latest addition to the team Marcelo Gutierrez to talk about his roots in racing

Colombian charger Marcelo Gutierrez has been on fire already in 2013, stepping onto the top spot at the Valparaiso Cerro Abajo DH race and so building on the promise shown at last year's UCI World Champs.

Now with the backing of none other than the Giant Factory Off-Road Team, and with the likes of Danny Hart and Andrew Neethling as teammates, this year is shaping up nicely for the 22-year-old.

With four elite national championship titles under his belt, he's leading a new wave of downhill racers in Latin America. We caught up with the new signing to talk about his roots in racing and take a look at his journey so far.
