Enervit has been confirmed as the Official Nutrition Partner of Appenninica MTB Stage Race, set to take place from September 4-9, 2023. The race organization will donate a portion of the registration fees to support the people of Emilia-Romagna who have been affected by the recent floods.
The Appenninica MTB Stage Race family is expanding, and it is thrilled to welcome an esteemed partner from the sports nutrition industry. For the upcoming edition scheduled for September 4-9, 2023, Enervit will join forces with the organizers of A.S.D. Happy Trail MTB. An Italian leading brand in sports supplementation and functional nutrition, Evervit is also a partner of the Italian National Cycling Team.
This prestigious partnership signifies the increasing visibility and credibility of the race within the Apennines of Emilia-Romagna, as it enters its fifth edition. In a challenge as demanding as the Appenninica MTB Stage Race, nutrition plays a vital role before, during, and after the competition, especially in a six-day stage race where recovery becomes crucial.
With over 40 years of experience in the industry, Enervit is the ideal nutrition partner to support the competitors of the Appenninica MTB Stage Race. The company possesses the know-how to design, test, develop, and produce innovative and high-quality functional foods and supplements.
“We are delighted to welcome Enervit into our family. Their reputation as a world leader in meeting the nutritional needs of athletes is well-known, and they will supply their best products before, during, and after the competition. In a challenge like the Appenninica MTB Stage Race, success not only depends on preparation and mental strength but also on the careful management of energy throughout each stage,” says Milena Bettocchi and Beppe Salerno, co-organizers of the Appenninica MTB Stage Race.
Paolo Calabresi, Enervit Sport & Fitness Marketing Director, stated: “We could not pass up the opportunity to support this unique MTB race in Italy for the second consecutive year, characterized by its traveling stages. It is a fantastic competition that attracts numerous foreign athletes in a challenging and exciting outdoor environment.“
A THOUGHT FOR ROMAGNA
Registration for the Appenninica MTB Stage Race is open until June 30th, 2023, during the “Regular Registration” phase. As in previous editions, the organizers have opted for the individual formula, with a maximum of 150 registered participants. This decision aims to avoid overcrowding on the trails and ensure a high standard of riding support for all participants.
In a show of solidarity with the people of Emilia-Romagna affected by the devastating floods in May, the organizers of A.S.D. Happy Trail MTB have decided to allocate a fee of €100 for each new registration until the end of the registration phase. The funds will be donated to the Emilia-Romagna Agency for Territorial Security and Civil Protection to aid in the restoration of the areas impacted by the environmental disaster.
“We are deeply saddened by the events that unfolded in our region and stand in solidarity with the people of Romagna. By allocating a portion of the new registration fees, we aim to support the reconstruction efforts and provide concrete help to the many families affected by this catastrophic event,” stated Milena Bettocchi and Beppe Salerno, co-organizers of the Appenninica MTB Stage Race.
