After a good year putting together the Shimano Brasil Enduro Series in 2014, we received the invitation to be part of the organization of the Montenbaik Enduro Latam 2015.

We feel very honored and happy to be part of this event, that will be a mark in the Enduro Scene in Latin America. And we will work hard to build a top series, that will soon became one of the most important Continental series in the world.

For the stop in Brasil, we choose the beautiful Pomerode, in the state of Santa Catarina. It’s a German Colony with awesome trails and landscapes, and we are 100% committed to deliver an awesome event for the endureros.

I feel very honored and fortunate to be the organizer of the first round of Montenbaik Enduro Latam Series 2015. I think the Cerro Catedral has all the conditions to provide great a international Enduro competition. The possibility of using lifts and more than 1000m of altitude gives us the opportunity to work on developing the best tracks for this championship.

With a topography of stones on top of the mountain and forests of native species 1600mts above the sea level, Cathedral offers a variety of terrain that will make a very complete competition. We are already working to make the best memories of this place.

Lets go Montenbaik Latam !!!!!!!
