Verdicchio Race 2017 Announcement

The Italian Verdicchio Race has returned on the Eurotour schedule. After a year of pause, Team Flat Downhill Skateboarding decided to once again host skaters in Poggiocupro, Italy.

The 2017 Verdicchio Race will take place from the 26th until the 29th of July. As the third edition of this event, 180 riders are expected to roll down the same road as in 2015.

In case you are not familiar with the Verdicchio race track, here is the scoop. It’s a 2.7 km long road with a top speed of +75 km/h for longboarders and up to +80 km/h for street lugers.

The first straight section includes fast sweepers that develop into a more technical section with 6 wide and fast hairpins. If you want to see how the track winds and check out their 2015 event video, click here.

The Verdicchio Race is also both a part of the Italian Downhill Skateboarding Championship, as well as the IDF World Qualifying Series.

Racing in this WQS will set you back 185 euros, while Italian skaters, who only wish to skate in their own Championship, have to pay an entry FIHP fee of 90 euros.

Registration and more event information can be found at http://www.verdicchiorace.it  or the event’s official Facebook page.
