On the 8th an 9th October the “crème” of Italian skateboarding met in Osimo for the annual edition of Skateboard Society contest. Last stop
of the Italian Champ circuit, the event took place in some of the best concrete facility of the nation. Opened a couple of years ago the
Skatepark comes out of Luca Crestani’s mind offering a broad variety of obstacles mixing transition, banks, whoops, rails and stairs in an
allround concrete wonderland. Fatal forecast stated season change was due of the contest weekend and so it was… Despite what you think of
Italian weather looking from a northern perspective.. well, it can get cold also here too! Go ask those been free-camping at the skatepark on
Saturday night. Charitable enough, despite the forecasts, weather gifted us with a non rainy weekend letting the event go through the
entire program SaturdayNight Death Race included.
Fabio Montagner grabbed the first place and together with this victory got back the title of Italian Champ for the 5th in the last 7 years… He is the
top Italian Contest skater hands down. Lil’ Orfeo Ranieri turned out to with under 16 category putting himself in the top spot of Junior
Italian ranking for this year. You know what’s good about Italian Champ in Italy? Those in the top spots of previous year ranking get
euro event trips payed… Good enough for the skater to stand such a name as “National Championship”.
