“In other sports like basketball, for example, you have the NBA, a kid who plays basketball, obviously dreams of playing in a professional league, the same thing happens in football. We already have ETR, which The team is from roping, and the calf loop was empty. Therefore, the idea was to fill this gap, with more trials, with more money, with an interesting cost-benefit for the competitor, to value the professional.
