In October, southern Bahia, better known as the Discovery Coast, hosts the world's premier premium mountain bike stage race. The cyclists will depart from Porto Seguro-Arraial d'Ajuda, where the first Portuguese landed in Brazil, in 1500. The athletes head inland through the mountains that divide the states of Bahia and Minas Gerais, and return to the coast to receive the desired finished shirt.
It's seven days in a perfect setting for the best experience of your life! The structure provided by the organization, compared only to the largest ultramarathons in the world, provides the competitors with everything they need; hydration points, food, camping, technical support and medical assistance while athletes only worry about what they like to do, cycling. Each race day has an average of 80 to 100 kilometers of the purest mountain bike. The real challenge of this event is not only to win, but to get to know yourself, live the sport, push the limits and get as close as possible to nature.
Side by side, sports lovers and national and world MTB stars will undertake this journey through the heart of Brazil. On the trail, at the dinner table, in the camp, the fraternization and exchange of experiences among athletes is one of the pillars of the event. Brasil Ride has the categories DOUBLE OPEN, DOUBLE WOMEN, DOUBLE MIXED, DOUBLE MASTER (no athlete under 40 years old in the Master category), DOUBLE GRANDMASTER (no athlete under 50 years old), NELORE (over 90 kg), CORPORATE TRIO (3 members with at least 35 years and the sum of ages equal to or greater than 115 years) and DOUBLE IRON RIDER.
New for 2022 will be the SOLO categories: SOLO ELITE MALE AND FEMALE (athletes with a UCI license in the ELITE and U23 categories). ONLY MALE AND FEMALE OPEN (for all athletes over 19 years old. UCI licensed athletes are not allowed in this category) and "Places are limited to 500 athletes", warns the organizer and ultramarathon runner Mario Roma.

The athletes' bags are transported by the organization on travel days between Vilas Brasil Ride. Individual tents in Guaratinga, with mattresses and sheets, are provided by the organization, where cyclists, after an exhausting day of pedaling, can rest and enjoy a comfortable night's sleep. VIP bungalows are also available, with advance purchase, for added comfort. Enclosed bathrooms with showers offer athletes a relaxing soak after a grueling day in the saddle.
