The expectation of the organizers is that 90 cyclists participate in the event that will be worth 10 points for the national ranking. According to Antonio Carlos Araújo, president of the FAC, the amapaense cycling has evolved as much technically, with the athletes, as structurally.

– Although we did not have a suitable place to train and conduct competitions, we always had high level events. A good example of this is the recent North / Northeast Cup, in which the Brazilian Cycling Confederation (CBC) itself has congratulated us and opened the door to national events-analyzed Antonio Carlos.

The cyclist Rosa da Silva also invites the amapaense cyclists to celebrate not only the anniversary of the entity but also the evolution of the sport in the state in the last decade.

– Before we did not consider traveling to other states, because we did not have money and sponsorship, today we still continue with the lack of sponsorship, but we are much more likely to compete in other states and we already have to celebrate-said Rosa.
