Portugal BRASIL RIDE aims to position itself as the largest staged Mountain Bike race in Europe. The merger in 2021 between the Portugal MTB brand with the strength of the Brasil Ride brand, now known by the European media as the "MTB's Italian Giro", adds to this goal. In addition, Brasil Ride has the status of the best Premium stage race in the world and a large customer base that currently has 40 thousand customers throughout Brazil and 37 countries. The Brasil Ride brand, with ten years in the market, and today organizer of 14 events per year, brings along with its portfolio the experience of organizing large-scale events.
Brasil Ride has consolidated itself in the market promoting destinations in the most diverse regions of Brazil and through its digital media network, today the largest in the world in Mountain Bike (with more than 812 followers), and in cycling, just behind the Tour de France on digital media impact.
The Portugal BRASIL RIDE 2022 will consist of a five-day Ultramarathon (Tuesday to Saturday) thus encouraging and boosting local commerce and, above all, tourism in the region and in the country, bringing athletes and family members from all over the world.
PORTUGAL Brasil Ride covers exceptional trails in the central region of the country (Castro Daire, São Pedro do Sul and Vouzela) and the Alto Douro Vinahteiro region (Alijó). All stages are carefully designed to offer athletes the best possible experience inspired by the diversity of landscapes, trails and terrains with the best that Portugal has to offer.
