Many national and international trends have come to life right here and it’s no coincidence that the Biker Fest Custom Bike Show is the most historical in Europe (born in 1987) and affiliated at its origins with the “Rat’s Hole” of Daytona and Sturgis (USA). An absolute exclusive is the Final of the IMC Custom Bike Show Championship (Italian Motorcycle Championship) and the only date of the AMD World Custom Bike Show Championship in Italy, with the exhibition of the most beautiful bikes in Europe.
Among the prizes up for grabs there are 4 expense refunds of 1,000 Euros and free stands at mega trade fairs such as the Motor Bike Expo in Verona and Rome Motodays, and additional accessories offered by major international catalogs, worth tens of thousands of Euros.
As always, the area of the free Demo Rides at the Stadium, created by the Official Motorcycle Manufacturers present, will be a great success: last year’s edition saw over 3,400 of them!
There will also be an 7 km long Off-Road area on two wheels, now in its 13th edition with the name of “Enduro Fest“, while for the 4 wheels it will be about 2 km long, without forgetting the social commitment with the hospitality to associations of disabled people who will be accompanied along the paths and other race exhibitions of Garden Tractor, Moped, Vespa and Lambretta … with the name “Mods Meet Rockers“.
But this event can not miss the good old Rock live with a dozen live performances, and then the Pin Up Contest and news for all tastes, such as the involvement of the Skate Park and WindSurfing exhibitions, particularly appreciated given the location.
