Velefique has been running for three years now and getting bigger each year! Rayne team rider Alvaro Bajo is our Spanish connection and he sent us a few words and a bunch of photos to share.

Driving through Tabernas Desert, South of Spain, stage of all the Spaghetti Western movies in the 60's and 70's, you find a little town called Velefique. For third year the 6km full of hairpins road was the guilty of gathering 150 riders from Spain, Portugal, France and more places all over the world in this small place.
The plan for the next four days was really simple: skate all day till the legs get tired, good food and swimming at lunch time, more skate and after nothing like beers and dinner with the friends watching some rad raw runs and skate videos projected over the shuttle van by MainOut.
Fortrate gave the opportunity to try all the Rayne boards, set up with Gunmetal Trucks and the smooth Rayne Sinful Pleasure Wheels, in the Test Point placed at the top of the track. Some riders even made a "Rayne Demo Race", that was sick!
The 3rd Rayne Velefique International Freeride was just incredible one more year, we had good sunny days (except Saturday), no serious injuries, everyone improve their skating with safety and the good vibes were all around! Shout outs to Velefique town, sponsors and all the riders - public for made it happens.
