Extra Packages

You can book a series of additional packages such as pre and post-event overnights and services that will make the Appenninica MTB Parmigiano Reggiano Stage Race a more comfortable, less stressful experience and give you a few added cards to win the finisher title or a better finishing ranking.

The Extra packages that we, as athletes, consider indispensable are the massage service and – if you do not have a team in tow – the mechanical service. Do not underestimate how the Appenninica will put your muscles and bicycle to the test!

We have divided the packages as follows:

Overnight pre/post-race 

  • Overnight pre-race
  • Overnight post-race

Extra Packages during the race

  • Package Race Comfort Hotel
  • Package Massages
  • Package Mechanical Assistance
