It’s official, the 12 Ore di Enduro – 12 Hours of Vintage Enduro event in Il Ciocco, Italy – was so successful they’re back bigger and better for a 2023 edition this November.

The date of November 10-12, 2023 has been set in stone for the return of a pretty unique vintage enduro event in Il Ciocco, Castelvecchio Pascoli, in the hills of Northern Italy for a 12 Hours of Enduro.

Trading on the historic 12-hour event way back in March 1975, 12 Ore di Enduro a Coppie second edition is what they call a “re-enactment” designed to be a mix between reunion and celebration.

It’s a nostalgia-fest then but very much a regularity enduro test for vintage bikes and riders competing in pairs (classes detailed below). Staged in a great setting, fuelled by the success of last year’s “re-enactment” and aiming to become a fixture on the calendar annually.
