A fast and frivolously fun take on a classic by Ninjatune’s Hexstatic.

Amidst the seemingly endless fields of the Po Valley lies Villa Rocca - a 20 persons strong community, dominated by a 500-year-old, inexorably crumbling castle. For one day each year, the morbid and almost magical place comes to life. A colorful bunch of velophile Italians convert the castle grounds into a single speed cyclocross course.
