“This team is born with a disruptive model in Brazilian cycling, we want to use the same concept used today in Europe and in the United States, by the great teams. I consider that a mountain biking team is much more than just bikes, components, athletes and a good structure. We think as a platform, to unite all the communication, with the public, sponsor, to approach the fans of the sport and to present in fact how a high performance team works that seeks to elevate the Brazilian name in the sport “, comments Loris Verona Junior.
