Chevaux Brasília Championship – 25 March 2017

Brasilia’s regional championship promises a good year for endurance in Brazil

Chevaux Brasília Championship, Fazenda Água Limpa, Brasilia, Brazil. Saturday 25 March 2017.

This was the first stage of the Chevaux Brasília Championship and was the same location as the season closing event of last year’s championship.

Chevaux Brasília ChampionshipIn total, there were 94 entrants in categories that started with 23.5km until the CEI1* 80km both in senior and junior that brought riders from different states together.

Some riders were in an endurance competition for the first time. One of them was Pedro Silva Neto, who went to the trails for the first time with his two children: “I’ve always ridden horses, but this was my first time in an endurance competition. It was much better than I expected, because there´s a lot of contact with horses and nature. I´ll come back with my children for sure”.

Leading for two of the three loops in the CEIYJ1* 80km was Maria Eduarda Sarmento (Safira Ludjin KL). She was quickest in these two loops and also had the best recovery time which put her in the best position for victory, but the third and final loop couldn’t keep the promise and she dropped back to third place.

Carolina Ferreira (JR) proved to be a close contender for victory but would disappear out of the race after the second loop.

Alex Lopes (SA Kaifa) divided his race in a different way which resulted in a victory with an average speed of 19.4 km/h. The last loop was a formality in the sense that his lead was big enough but he still managed the highest speed in the final kilometre. Second place was for Rodrigo Moreira (Champagne Endurance) who managed to overtake first leader Maria Eduarda.

In the CEI1* 80km we saw a similar scenario with leader of two loops Rogério Silveira (RT Dubai) maintaining the highest speed and a good recovery that helped to lay out the perfect foundation for victory.

Samuel Pereira (BA Barack) couldn’t hold his second place and was out after loop number two because of metabolic.

After the second loop Rogério Silveira was still leading with Rafael Salvador (Crys Trio) a minute behind him and José Antônio Machado (Floripa Endurance) a bit more than a minute behind him in third.
And it was José Antônio Machado who upped the pace and climbed from third to first place whilst Rafael Salvador maintained his second position, with Rogério Silveira struggling and having to content himself with the third place.

Last year´s race in this location had 88 entrants which was a record at the time, which already shows that 2017 will also be a great year for endurance in Brasília. Comparing 2015 to 2016, the average number of participants increased by 30%.

“We know that having this growth again is very difficult. But we will try to maintain an average of over 100 participants per event and continue our mission of promoting and bringing new riders to the sport in Brasilia,” explains Dudu Barreto, a founding partner of Chevaux, organizer of the Endurance events in the region.

The next stage of the regional championship will also be the first stage of Copa Chevaux, the national Endurance Championship in Brazil. The event will happen from 19 to 21 May, at the Brasília Country Club.
