My name is Gustavo, I'm from Brazil, If you notice any english problem excuse me, I'm a long time without speaking english...

My bikes are a Salsa Bandito 2003 with Rock Shox SID WC (06)

Her name is Maggie.

My training machine is a Specialized Allez

her name is Juliet.


Here in Brazil we have some races, but MTB is a growning sport over here.
I can't even find Titanium bolts over here and everything is pretty expensive.

I know I can learn a lot here and share my rides or other stuff.

Well KEEP the RIDE fellas!!!

OUCH!!!! MY BAD Reddraggon!!!!! :roll:

The Epic is named PICA (which means a bad word in Brazil)

The 29er is Preta Gil, who is a BIG singer we have here in Brazil, big in size, just like the 29er tires, not in talent.

The Enduro is Chausson, pretty obvious huh?

And the Roubaix is Billie Jean King, thats my mom ideia and I always listen to my mom, well, Not always, but sometimes I try, she said: "Do not go to DOWNHILL DOWNTOWN but I went: :twisted:

Oh It's not the metro, this is a mountain inside a city, Cedric Gracia raced this year there too.

It was my first year so I was more for the fun and learning than really racing, this thing is TOO dangerous and *f##k* fast, scared the shit out of me.

I'm going to be posting the video from our helmet camera, where my friend, the second guy in the picture, shoot me going down the stairs.

I'll post it here.

In the picture you can see the rear tire totaly flat on the ground after the impact of jumping those stairs, and I'm pretty light 55kg.



Tochnics the slippery stairs made some down, pretty bad to fall down because no doubt you gonna hit something very fast and hard.


BUT SURE, It's pretty fun, next year I'm back there!
