Red Bull’s Mini Drome event made its first ever appearance in Brazil last weekend when the world’s smallest Velodrome visited São Paulo in Brazil.
São Paulo’s Memorial da America Latin provided the backdrop to the Fixed Gear action over the famous wooden boards on Saturday and Sunday.
Red Bull Mini Drome always attracts the cream of the local Fixed Gear riding scene wherever it goes and São Paulo was no exception.
A field of 40 was eventually whittled down to 16 after Saturday’s time trial qualification event. Those 16 riders then battled it out in a pursuit competition to find the ultimate winner on the Sunday.
Sunday happened to be a good day for Suryan Cury. He took home the winning trophy as overall winner for Red Bull Mini Drome São Paulo. It also happened to be his birthday.
Despite Suryan’s victory, the real story of the São Paulo event was a female participant taking second place overall on the final day. Carina Chandan qualified 10th overall and then beat two men on her way to the final before being beaten by Suryan in the final pursuit race.
