Press Release: Appenninica Stage Race


After the excellent outcome of this year, the event will remain in September. Registrations will open on November 15th

Less than a month removed from a beautiful 2020 edition, the organizers of Appenninica MTB Stage Race are already working for 2021, and there is already the first significant news.

After pushing the 2020 edition from Summer to Fall because of the epidemiological emergency, the excellent feedback received from athletes and insiders convinced the organizers to confirm September as the month of the challenging stage race in the Emilian Apennines.

Appenninica's third edition will take place from Sunday 12th to Saturday, September 18th, 2021, over seven days of competition. The September fixture should ensure the ideal climate for the competition, away from the peaks of summer heat and the early autumn cold.

Mid-September is also perfect for seizing the views of the Apennines and enjoying the real MTB on its unique ridges:
bigquotes"After this year's success, despite all the hurdles, - explains Beppe Salerno, co-organizer of the race together with Milena Bettocchi, - we decided to confirm our calendar slot in September, two weeks earlier than this year. We expect to find slightly warmer temperatures and an even more eager welcoming since our venues' summer season will still be open. Also, the international calendar offers us an interesting opportunity, as we aim to bring a group of top riders on the Apennines next year too".

HOW TO REGISTER

As in 2020, the organizing committee chose to allow only individual participation without the pairs format, following an increasing trend worldwide.

It will be possible to register for 2021 Appenninica from November 15th, when the "Early Bird" phase will open: until January 31st, a maximum of 55 athletes can register for a reduced price.

With Appenninica's trails riding through regional and national parks, in order not to overcrowd the course and ensure the utter level of enjoyment, the organizers opted to set a maximum number of 150 registered athletes.

 If it wasn't for covid I'd planned to spend time riding near Castelnovo Ne' Monti a couple of weeks ago. Looks a great place to explore away from the usual honeypot trails.
