Well since I don’t understand Portuguese, I can only take an educated guess at what’s being said in here. Since it’s titled as a “mini doc” and has both new and old footage of Brazil’s Cosmo Trails, I’m going to say that they discuss the trails origins and who keeps them alive and running today. I invite a Portuguese speaker to correct me if I’m wrong!
And yet another trail spot in Brazil! I like how this one is complete with stadium seating.
Here’s what an average day at the Continental Trails looks like brought to you by Blue Herbert.
Well unless you happen to know Portuguese you’re not going to understand a word Blue says. Since this is a bike check I’m assuming he’s giving us the run down on his bike and the new Master Bikes Brasil (Brazil with an s?) frame. You do get to see him take it through a few laps at the Continental Trails though!
It’s becoming very apparent that if I’m going to keep doing CYDI that I may need to learn Portuguese. Shit is always going on down in Brazil and I’m always seeing new trails. This is the first that I’ve seen or heard of the Cosmo Trails, but they look to be another good spot and there’s a jam there on June 22nd. You know if you just so happen to be in Brazil this weekend!
One of my favorite things about doing Can You Dig It is seeing all the different trails and scenes from around the world. The Continental Trails were the first set of Brazilian trails that I was aware of. I don’t know what it is but the place just seems like it has a really good vibe going on. Victor Frezza was kind enough to send over some photos that he shot the other day during a laid back Continental session. Hit the jump button and then you’ll be able to click on the pics to make them larger.
Spotted this video of the Continental Trails and the photo gallery that goes along with it over on the Brazilian X Games/ESPN site. I really need to make an effort to start learning Portuguese so that I not only know what they are saying in these videos but also so I’ll be ready for when I make a trip down to Brazil.
Shot out to Valvo for sending this over! I’m definitely psyched to see more of this place!
Brazil sure does have a thriving trails scene! I’ve never seen the Dona Ana Trails before but they are apparently located in Cambuí. Continental Trails locals Henrique Castro and Blue Herbert made a trip to check them out and came back with this edit.
Another thriller of a video from the Continental Trails! This time it’s a POV video of local Blue Herbert taking Glauber Telles through the lines.
