I am sure that with every opportunity in which we observe a brevet many are the lessons we have learned. The Audax Cycling Society, through the director Sirlei Ninki, presents some cyclists to the world, through this way of honoring the cyclists. At the first opportunity this year, I saw the homage to Luis Lazary; Now, in a new opportunity this cyclist is Saul Rodrigues. What they have in common I believe to be the affection of colleagues, for both are always referenced with joy. In fact, this medium is like this… the ancients, become indispensable and valuable “icons” of these proofs. And the value of this we know very well… and after all, these differences between cyclists leave everyone very curious. What would be the criterion of choice to honor a road rider? 

Speed? Planning? Frequency? I believe these questions is the reason… anyone who walks light knows that Lazary is always one of the last! Everyone knows that he himself says… “If you stay behind me you may not be able to get there!” Lazary is always one of the last one to get cheap water bottles for running … brilliant, but the speed definitely does not make him the chosen one. Saul Rodrigues… I’ve seen him be the first during a 1000 km Audax. It could be very fast and tough to knock down any evidence, could this be a criterion in choosing? I do not think so… I’ve seen it faster and this does not make anyone better than anyone else. Well, I really have no answer for that, because I never asked Ninki the real reason. However, I always imagine the real motive is the profile of these guys… They are really extraordinary as human beings. Education, joy, complicity, smile on the face for pedaling free of labels… need a bigger reason than this?I think this is it… I have no other belief.

On this occasion, I worked on two different events … I did not want to leave anyone in the hand, but I still left. I stopped doing the XCM of Camaquã and the DH of Nova Plata, both of the Gaucho Federation of Cycling. And the truth is that I can not be in many places at the same time, even though I listen to several people: “how can you be in so many places at the same time?”

Well, I always play… I’m actually an alien in love with work.

I would like to talk a lot more about Saul Rodrigues, also about Luis Lazary, because I believe they are great examples to follow. However, at this moment the duty calls me… and as the homage of the moment is from our friend and idol Saul, I will leave here the link of the report he made about the Giro do Chimarrão, third edition. And you will know a little bit how strong this friend of ours is… a strong embrace to the cyclists of long dreams
