Appenninica MTB Parmigiano Reggiano Stage Race

 

Appenninica MTB Pietra di Bismantova

Overview

The Appenninica MTB Stage Race takes place along the Apennine ridge between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany.

The format of the race consists of teams of 2 riders with both a general and category classification and SOLO riders with men and women categories.

The Appenninica MTB Stage Race is a competitive race that offers both beautiful trails and spectacular rides on the ridge. The mountains offer all the ingredients to host the most important MTB event of its kind in Italy. The Apennines of Emilia Romagna are a paradise for all outdoors lovers.

The riders will face a hard challenge, creating lasting memories and the satisfaction of having achieved something truly extraordinary.

Participants are coming from all continents for the 2020 edition between July 19 and July 25. The number of participants is limited to 150.

2019 participants raved about the race and called it “real mountain biking”.

The race facts by the numbers certainly do not pale in comparison with the now celebrated international races that started the movement of MTB stage racing such as the TransAlp (eastern Alps), TransRockies (Canada) and Cape Epic (South Africa). The distance to tackle is over 450km with an elevation gain of about 16.000m.

The race will take place over 7 stages. There will be an inaugural stage (not a prologue, but not a monster stage either), and a time trial stage towards the end of the week. In between several touch stages that will demand plenty of tenacity.

The cities hosting the Race Village of the Appenninica will offer the participants a warm welcome and – without a doubt – the best Italian cuisine of any MTB races.

The event was incredible – from the amazing riding to the breathtaking scenery. The atmosphere and the vibe that you created at the race was just brilliant, and I feel so very fortunate to have been involved in the first year of Appenninica.
