The Italian team Santa Cruz FSA has been one of those that has been renewed almost completely for 2021, the Frenchman Maxime Marotte leads a project in which he is accompanied by the Italian champion Luca Braidot, Martina Berta and Greta Seiwald. And this will be the exotic Santa Cruz Blur CC Lavender version that will be ridden in the World Cup and will be launched in a few weeks.

Santa Cruz Blur CC Lavender version of the Santa Cruz FSA

The Santa Cruz brand is almost inherent to the origin of mountain biking, but it is true that it has not always been very present in competitive XCO. In 2018 the Santa Cruz FSA team was born to remedy this situation and in 2021 with the arrival of Maxime Marotte and Luca Braidot the bet has been increased so that Santa Cruz is once again on the most important international XCO podiums.
