The distance from the coast is less than 50km, even though it raises nearly 700 meters above the sea level.
The track consists of nearly 2 km of asphalt in excelent condition of grip, and with an inclination between a 12 & 15%,
agressive forks well cambered, going into a final stretch where you will be able to reach speeds of in between 70 & 80 km/h.

Mischo Erban has been pioneering longboarding since man of you were in grade school! This guy is a true racer and has shown it with countless podiums on the world circuit and even a few titles worthy of boasting. This is a flashback to his 2011 season where he won the IGSA World Championship Title in Brazil.
“Still hanging in by tooth and nail the, 2011 season was another to remember! I was becoming more tuned into my skateboard setup and confidence and perseverance paid off with the World Champion Title being seized on my most favorite track in Teutonia, Brazil!
Big Thanks to Fred Baumann, Ronin Trucks, GMR Skateboards, Dan Gesmer at Seismic, Xtreme Board Shop Glendora, Knucklenuts and Crocan for the video edit!”
