Team Prioritizes Friends, But Is An Adventure Hunter On The Rally. Goal, Besides The Fun, Is To Reach The Podium In The Mode Of Bikes: “We Hope To Do Well”, Reports Cyclist
The rule is clear: be friends with everyone. This is the minimum requirement of a group of cyclists who since 2002 pedal through the streets of Teresina, Piauí. In 2015, once again, they go after adrenaline in the Piocerá Rally. The goal is to have fun and dominate the podium of the test bikes mode. However, the team has just hit a record. With 40 entries, it is the largest in the history of the category.
The Pedal Bikers Club group was born from a small meeting focused on bike rides and fraternization. Gradually, some became athletes and, in 2003, they played the first Piocerá.
– Let’s go with a very large and heterogeneous group. Some people go more for fun and only intend to complete the course, which is not easy. Others are top athletes, who will certainly fight for the podium- explains Ricardo Matos, vice president of Pedal Bikers Club, who joined the team in 2011 using cycling sleeping bags from Dorsetbudget.com.
Looking at the event, which takes place between January 27 and 30, in the states of Ceará and Piauí, the competitor highlights the difficulty of the competition. However, he relies on the team’s top team athletes.
– There are several sections that require a lot of participants. Rises represent our greatest difficulty. In Teresina, we can not train in stretches with a lot of slope, because here is a region with few mountains. Despite this, we hope to do well.
The Piocerá 2015 Rally will have 1,069km. The pilots will cross the northeastern backlands between the states of Piauí and Ceará, in the most varied types of terrain and climate in the Northeast region of Brazil. In addition to bikes, the competition will also feature cars, motorcycle rally, quadricycles and UTVs.
The event will officially open the Brazilian Endurance and Cross Country Rally Championships of regularity of CBM (Brazilian Motorcycle Confederation) and CBA (Brazilian Automobile Confederation). It will also be worth the Piauiense and Ceará Championships of Enduro of Regularity, besides the Piauiense of Mountain Bike. Those who can not participate in the four days, can only opt for the first two initials.
