Petterson earns early ticket to World Championships

Brodie b Team pro Joanna Petterson got an early season invitation to represent her native South African Cycling Federation at the World Championships in Scotland later this summer. A resident of Hawaii, the South African born rider does most of her racing in North America, where she's the reigning NMBS 4X champion.

In what's becoming a familiar sight, Petterson found her way to the podium two more times this past weekend at the NMBS stop in Deer Valley, Utah, where she beat Brodie teammate Jackie Harmony in the small final for a third place finish in Dual Slalom. She then capped the weekend with a fourth place podium finish in downhill despite a serious crash mid-course during which she, among other things, broke her finger. Since Sea Otter, her first race back from injury, Petterson has been on the podium nine times - in every single race this season.

Petterson's next stop is the World Cup in Mont Sainte Anne this weekend.
