And 26OUT2014, I was challenged to participate in the Raid Folgosa. While riding already wandering away from the BTT, I accepted the invitation because the challenge was launched by a great friend. By 07H30 on Sunday (26) was already putting the bike and the rest of the equipment in my car so soon after doing about 15 kilometers to where it was in the RAID.
After it was over by the secretariat where I picked the front that I had been assigned (517 since it was built in the fifties of the class). After the walk was a bit through the streets of Folgosa to warm the muscles, because the RAID promised, since the classification was medium / high, would be 35 Kilometres, which were expected hard. Not fled to expectations, many durinhas ascents, many technical descents, something dangerous, some mud and some also many creeks with water. In this adventure so I was challenged also attended my friend some years Carlos narrates that he was challenging, yet another companion, Paiva, yes this a true BTTista because all the way, not once dismounted, and finished the difficult 35 kilometers, as if he had not done them.
It was hard, very hard, for me, more should have been for my friend Carlos Narra, only anada these wanderings at about 3 months and then had to get a hold of a RAID hard MIDDLE / HIGH, but it seems that despite difficulties like.
Were always about 4:30 minute ride, up and down hill, but worth it, both for the company as to the recollection of many other RAIDs, and marathon mountain bike already accomplished.
Of course these events always happen funny things, some falls (luckily without consequences, say the Narra), fellowship of BTTistas with the guys who will speaking (pincipalmente those who walk between the middle of his final squad oo), supplies, which always conece malta new friends (who patilham the same taste in bikes), the rails, the photos will be taking the route that we abstaculos exceeding, landscapes, etc.
In the end everything went well, apart from the big "twist" that we carry (and I Narra). To emphasize the good organization of the event Cargo Group of BTT maiatos, which presented us with a BOM route and with a GOOD abastecimetos Solids and Liquids.
