The tracks of that time, the motorcycles of that time, the riders of that time. Plus the subsequent generations of passion that kept alive the desire for an “encore”. More than a re-enactment it is a sequel, a temporal transposition in a Vintage key. So to Il Ciocco, according to the rules that made “Regularity” great. After the place, the date: the long weekend between 21 and 23 October. Two days of competition, three days of celebration. History reopens. For the historic ones, for the classics, for the bikes we have had and that we have in our hearts!

The 12 Hours in Pairs was a flash of genius and hell, the fatal and fantastic expression of the leap in quality of what is now called Enduro. A non-stop race, mighty, difficult, dare we say… epic. To be won by two, to be overcome by two, to be overcome. It was the center of an enthusiasm that definitively moved beyond the boundary of Specialty. Difficult to tell.

On the paths and the now mythical streets ofIl Ciocco, on a 30-40 minute loop. Service Park at the Stadium, Spectacular adjacent refueling area. Limited number of participants:it is an organizational need and a privilege to be conquered with the first race … the certainty of being there To give a complementary geographical idea, the center of the 12 Hours becomes … the Locanda alla Vecchia Posta (seeing is believing).

Si parte all’alba, con il buio, o si arriva di notte. We pass from the glacial cold of the mountains to the scorching heat. 6 hours on Saturday, 6 hours on Sunday. Only one assistance area, one for Change-Drivers. Who will have to deal with consumption and autonomy – technical and human – with that noise that emerges from the mechanics, with obstacles and with … the opponents. Hard, but beautiful terrain. Atmosphere of other times, perfectly current. All in an atmosphere of exceptional communion of purpose. Exciting.

Run People, Run!
