2009 marked Iron Biker’s 17th edition, repeating the circuit of the last edition from Mariana to Ouro Preto, in Minas Gerais.
This 17th and 18th of October saw the gathering of Brazil’s best mountain bikers including the two-time Mountain Bike Marathon champion Robson Ferreira, who went on to win the 17th edition of Iron Biker Brazil.
Robson Ferreira affirms: “when I set up in the bike, I knew that it would be a good day, thank God everything went well. The bike worked marvelously, me legs felt good, I attacked with 10 km of the start and only saw my opponents again at the arrival line. I kept a good pace from the 10k mark and had a long enough lead that I didn’t need to sprint for the finish. I finished the stage with advantage of 2 minutes and 30 seconds.”
The repeat champion Robson Ferreira would like to thank all those who helped him achieve his result: his ponsors, friends, parents, trainer, and his wife…for the force, understanding! Only they know how an athlete is formed, from good friends and backers, because without them it is much more difficult.
Robson Ferreira of the team Amazonas Bike, is sponsored by ASW, KONA, ENICO and PROSHOCK, with additional support from CAMELBAK, DIADORA AND SUOMY.
