The Dream Team - this year supported by Felt Bicycles - is back for its fourth crack at the Crocodile Trophy with Italian Mauro Bettin, recently crowned World Cup Marathon Mountain Bike Champion at the head of a team that has victory firmly in its sights. Bettin is joined by Two Germans, former Telekom pro turned triathlete Kai Hundertmarck and Nurnberger men's team director Jens Zemke, plus Lars - Eric Johnson from the USA and Australian David Wood. The five are supported by, among others, Eurosport commentator Christi Valentine-Anderson who will tell their story as this dusty desert crew aims for the top spot on the podium two weeks from now.

Since the race began on October 18th, the team has submitted three enties about what may be the most unique and challenging winter (ahem) race in mountain biking.
