For former professional triathletes @analidiaborba and @maribandrade, bringing more women into the sport is a dream beginning to be realized.
From the time of professionals, they remember that the friendship and companionship among elite athletes were created and strengthened on trips to train. And it was with fondness and longing for these trips that the ATHENA Women’s Cycling Camp 2020 emerged, a way they found to share epic roads with more women cyclists and provide the experience acquired throughout their careers as athletes and Physical Education professionals.
The destination couldn’t be better: the beautiful and challenging Serra Catarinense! The city of Urubici was the base to explore the region with a different route each day, simulating the challenge to be faced in the first edition of the Haute Route Brasil, which takes place in Oct / 21, and faced the famous climate changes of the Serra do Rio of the Trail. An unforgettable experience for everyone who took part in this experience!
