Brazilian Endurance in 2016

What happened over the last season in the biggest country in Latin America?

In 2016 the Brazilian Endurance and Paraendurance Championship (CBEE) was held on a single stage, on August 6, at Haras Minas Gerais Endurance in Caetanópolis – MG.

 

André Vidiz won the title of 160km champion for the third time, riding Bonitão Endurance.

“The goal of every Brazilian Endurance rider is to reach a 160km CBEE and become a champion. It is indescribable. It feels like getting into history.”

The Brazilian Paraendurance Championship also made history in the competition, which was notable for gathering, for the first time, competitors from across four states: São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Paraná and Brasília.

 

Another national championship mobilised Brazilian riders: Copa Chevaux was played out in five stages across three different Brazilian states. After riding more than 600 km during the season, and 240 km in the last stage, Cecília Gazzola was crowned the champion of the 2016 cup.

“A month before the last race I saw I had the chance to be the champion, so I decided to compete in both days of the last stage. I was in a lot of pain, I thought I wouldn’t get there, but I did. My biggest motivation was the title.”

The fifth and last stage was the biggest endurance event of the year in Brazil, with approximately 200 athletes.

 

Last year, the Brazilian endurance community also celebrated a milestone on 6 June, when Ederson Fernandes da Costa Branco became the first Brazilian to win a 160km race outside the country. Branco and RSC El Zafira were champions in the race held in Trinidad, Uruguay, with an average speed of 18.54 km/hour.

Brazilians determined to make endurance big in the country again.

After a period of turbulence, the biggest country in Latin America is making great investment in endurance.

2016 was a big year for Brazilian endurance: not only because of the growth in some states, but also because of the strong motivation of Brazilian endurance lovers to make the sport grow in the country once again.

Two years ago, a company called Chevaux was inaugurated with the ambitious goal to promote equestrian sports in Brazil, starting with endurance.

The indications are that this project is succeeding. Championships organised by the company have shown more than 30% of growth compared to previous years. In addition, the national organizations of the sport (CBH and IEB, regional federations and endurance riders are combining and joining forces to achieve the best for the sport.
