Criterio Fixed, Rio de Janeiro

In Rio de Janeiro the heat continues to increase and euphoria and no, this time it’s not about football or big carnivals, this time it’s the Criterio Fixed, the first major test of criterium type in Brazil with the support of major brands.

It will be held on 17 May in the vicinity of the famous cathedral of world football, the Maracana. The race has been included in the project of Latin American Federation criteriums to be played between Chile and Brazil.

Despite the love for football and the immeasurable passion for “The Seleção”, cities like Rio or Sao Paulo are genuine hubs for the cycling community and the groups that are part of the Brazilian movement growing relentlessly fixed with passion, joy and enthusiasm that characterizes this amazing country .

One of the major objectives is precisely Cirterio Fixed growing fixed gear culture in the Carioca city.

The circuit around the stadium has 1.8 km and a quick tour, with long straights, yet balanced with some very technical areas.

The race has three categories:

  • Women ( 6 laps and possibility to use brakes)
  • Men 1 (14 laps, 25.2 km)
  • Men 2 (10 laps, distance 18 km)

Maximum security, ambulances, electronic timing and race staff are some of the details that the event organizers RJFG (Rio de Janeiro Fixed Gear) didn’t want to leave behind. There are many sponsors that have joined in sponsoring this event aims to be one of the year’s events in the country and we believe this is just the tip of the iceberg.

As RAW Cycling Magazine give our full support as media supporters who will be one of the pioneers of fixed gear events in Brazil.

Thanks to Henrique (Kike), our faithful partner and friend, always keep up on what’s happening in the Brazil fixed panorama and Alex and Ciro for accepting our collaboration. Obrigado Meu Deus!
