Bart Brentjens and Annie Last

What words of wisdom does the first Olympic MTB XC Champ have for our UK medal hopeful?

Bart Brentjens was the first winner of the Olympic XC mountain biking (1996) and won gold again in 2004. He’s now team manager to Annie Last, one of Britain’s brightest hopes for XC MTB gold in the 2012 Olympics.

In the video below, Bart offers his pros and cons of the newly redesigned Olympic mountain bike course at Hadleigh Farm which he had the chance to ride recently, as well as his predictions for the winners of the Olympic mountain biking this summer.

And in MBUK 278, you can read Bart’s advice for Annie in her quest for Olympic medal glory – it’s on sale on 1 June.

Update! A top 10 finish at La Bresse on Sunday means Annie has now secured a place at the Olympics. Go Annie! More here, courtesy of the BBC.
