Six days of mountain bike in one of the most gorgeous Brazilian places… and six rainy days. The sun shone at some moments, though, but rain prevailed. This was the debut of Claro Brazil Ride, mountain bike ultra marathon that is now part of the world calendar, along with races like Cape-Epic, Trans-Alps, and Trans-Rockies. In 2011 the race will be anticipated, so that maybe the sun will reign.
The bikers’ declarations at the finish line summed up the race: hard, but I want more.
