Brazilians want to Maintain Hegemony at CIMTB Levorin

First stage, in Araxá, was defeated by the Mexican Daniela Campuzano, but in São João never a foreigner won; Test of São João del-Rei will help Brazil in the Olympic ranking

As in the men’s category, the women’s Super Elite of the Levorin International Mountain Bike Cup only had Brazilian champions in São João del-Rei, a mining town that will host the event for the third time between Friday (15) and Sunday (17). In the first edition, in 2013, Isabella Lacerda (LM / Shimano) won the title. Last year, Erika Gramiscelli (Funvic Soul) finished the stage at the top of the podium.

In São João, Brazilians want to avoid what happened in Araxá, where the Mexican Daniela Campuzano surpassed Raiza Goulão, Isabella and Erika to become champion of the first stage of 2015.

“In addition to the Brazilians, CIMTB Levorin’s São João del-Rei stage will have another very interesting component: the presence of foreigners who can fight for the title. For example, Argentina’s Agustina Apaza (48th in the UCI ranking) Equatoriana Alexandra Serrano (59th in the UCI ranking) and Costa Rican Adriana Rojas (70th in the UCI ranking),”says Rogério Bernardes, organizer of the main Mountain Bike event in Latin America.

Erika Gramiscelli, a five-time Brazilian champion of Cross Country, has the experience to repeat last year’s result in São João del-Rey and prevent a foreigner from celebrating on national soil again. According to the athlete, favoritism does not disturb her.”To be able to reach the level I achieved in the competition, the other athletes will still need to sweat the shirt a lot,” says Erika, admitting the possibility of some outside athlete surprising. “The participation of so many foreign athletes makes it a box of surprises, but it also increases the desire to win.”

Brazilian best placed in the UCI ranking (29th placed), the Goisa Raiza Goulão hopes not to repeat the strategic error of last year, which made her finish the stage of St. John in second place. In the XCO final, Raiza (AOO Specialized) crossed the finish line less than 1s behind Erika. “I trust in the good moment that I am living to erase the mistake made in 2014 and win the title of this year’s stage.” In addition to Erika, I would point to Isabella, Agustina and Alexandra as my main adversaries,”says Raiza.

Another of the candidates for the title, Isabella rejects the favoritism. “I think this is not true in a competition that is as disputed as this one, but I think I will do a great race and get a great result.”

Stage could improve Brazilian position in Olympic ranking-CIMTB’s São João del Rei stage Levorin will also be important for Brazil’s Olympic pretensions. Currently, the country ranks 10th in the UCI Cross Country women’s ranking. If you can climb to eighth you can guarantee two Brazilian representatives in the Cross Country of the Rio de Janeiro Olympic Games. By having Class 1 classification, the competition in São João will give 60 points to the Cross Country champion (XCO) and 10 UCI points to the winner of the Sprint Eliminator (XCE).

“Along with the victory, my main goal in the St. John del Rei stage of CIMTB Levorin is to prevent the foreigners finishing in the first places, because that would hinder us in the Olympic ranking,” says Erika Gramiscelli.

Defined schedule-The second stage of the Levorin International Mountain Bike Cup, which will be played at the Tancredo Neves Campus of the UFSJ (Federal University of São João del Rei), has already been defined. The first day is reserved for Sprint Eliminator free practice and timeouts.

On Saturday, the day is full. Early in the morning (9.00), the Sprint Eliminator finals, then free practice for all Cross Country categories. In the early afternoon (14.00), the Sense Bike Tour, followed by the tests and awards of the LM Bike categories of Amadores (15h30). The day ends with Technical Congress (18h15) and the start of the race on foot, Night Run (19h30).

Sunday starts at 8 am, with the first starts of CIMTB Levorin, followed by the respective awards, with the Super Elite, male and female, from 14 hours onwards.
