The tenth consecutive edition of the Levorin International Mountain Bike Cup in Congonhas, reinforced by the unprecedented UCI Marathon Series on Brazilian soil, ensured a great demand for cyclists from all over Brazil. Less than a week before the registration deadline, the 1,500 places for CIMTB Levorin and LM Bike Cup of Amateur were filled. Athletes from 15 states will be in the ‘City of Prophets’, where they will participate in the main MTB event in Brazil.
“We already imagined that the Marathon would have a high demand. In every year it is so.I believe that the UCI Marathon Series’ unprecedented competition helped us reach the subscriber limit sooner than we imagined. In addition to the massive presence of the staff of Minas Gerais, responsible for more than 60% of the registrations, we also had many athletes from São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Espírito Santo, Bahia, Goiás and the Federal District”, celebrates Rogério Bernardes, organizer of the event.
The athlete guaranteed in the dispute should be aware of the extended period for confirmations. Due to the high number of participants, the process can be done in Belo Horizonte, August 11 and 12 (Monday and Tuesday before the event), from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., at the NEREA store, at Rua Francisco Deslandes, 1018. Athletes can also confirm their registration at the event’s secretariat in Congonhas on Saturday or Sunday (16 or 17) before the start, which is not recommended to avoid unforeseen before the start of the row. In both situations it is necessary to donate two kilograms of non-perishable food (except cornmeal and salt).
The program in Congonhas begins on Friday (15), with the completion of the Ladeira Challenge from 8pm for the bikers and the Pearl Izumi Night Run running race.
