Verdicchio Track

Dating back to medieval times, the road was constructed by Pope Clemente XII to provide a link between the castle villages up in the hills with the villages down near the river. This medieval road from the past that makes trade possible between villages today, will host riders of all over Europe and around the world for the Verdicchio European Championships. , Competitors from all countries will have fun with their longboards and street luges, shredding this medieval track full of sweeping turns and sweet hairpins.
Entry fees for the event are €100 for the first class and €25 for each additional class. There will be a free camping area with showers and services for all the riders. Live concerts will take place on Friday and Saturday night! (More info about the bands will be out soon!) There are also many Bed & Breakfasts around the village where competitors can choose to stay. A list will be published on the official event website. There will be two bars along the road serving food and drinks for spectators and a shop area at the start for brands who want to promote their stuff.
