Memorable weekend for the Vertigo family. The Vertigo Experience Day was a huge success with around a hundred attendees making the trip to the Puig Francó Hotel and the Noassar Trial Area to enjoy a truly trials experience. The weather was simply perfect, with the sun braking through as the day progressed and with a gastronomic offer that delighted everyone, with the typical “calçots” and a roast beef that delighted the most demanding palates.
A large representation of international importers from countries such as the United States, Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Germany, Russia, Japan, Great Britain, Ireland or Italy were able to enjoy the area either on the bike or as spectators at sections especially designed for the occasion, in which the Factory riders showcased all their skills. Saturday was only the icing on the cake for the international representatives of Vertigo, the previous two days they had already been at the Factory receiving guided tours through the building and receiving technical talks on the current models of the brand.
Jaime Busto, Miquel Gelabert, Jack Price, Berta Abellán, Aniol Gelabert, Lorenzo Gandola, Hugo Dufrese, Pau Martínez and Ben Dignan, 2020 Vertigo’s World Championship riders commanded by team manager Dougie Lampkin, demonstrated all their qualities under the watchful eye of the importers, sharing sections with all customers of the brand and those international representatives who had the opportunity to swing their leg over one of the 2020 Verticals available for the occasion, to which they had access in turns.
The event presented an exquisite symbiosis between trial, gastronomy and leisure, which resulted in a high grade of satisfaction of all those who came to the Puig Francó Hotel, which featured its best finery with the sun exalting its unique views and surroundings.
As if that wasn’t enough, on Sunday many of the attendees also made it to the Palau Sant Jordi to follow live Jaime Busto and Miquel Gelabert at the Barcelona X-Trial, the best indoor event worldwide that was held again in a crowded Palau Sant Jordi. It was a very special event for Vertigo as the brand had its own section, which in fact, turned out to be one of the most technical and difficult of the night. In terms of results Miquel Gelabert was 7th, he left moments of brilliance but X-Trial doesn’t admit any kind of mistake and with 19 marks he didn’t advance to the 2nd round. Jaime Busto was very close to sneaking into the fight for the Top 3, he was just one point away from qualifying for the Runners-up final, he was 5th but keeps to his name the 3rd spot of the standings with only 3 rounds remaining.
Four days packed of activities that leave a pretty positive outcome and confirms the great moment Vertigo is currently going through. The brand would like to thank everyone who joined any of the events that took place during these days and wants to express its intention to repeat formula in the near future.
