Riders bulletin n.6 📒 August 29, 2022

 

This is the 6th rider bulletin. These bulletins will provide useful information, news, and mandatory action reminders. Race time is next Sunday!

 

Let’s talk about navigation

You’ll navigate via our yellow and red arrows and sometimes yellow signage tape and also by using the GPX files of the stages uploaded to your GPS device. Get used to checking your GPS device regularly to confirm that you are on track. Read the race rules articles: Race marking and Navigation, Special Marking, Missing signs, and sabotage of racecourse arrows.

 

  • GPX files of the stages are available for download. Save them to your GPS including those called “Dorms” and the B routes that could be used in case of bad weather (BW in the file name). We’ll tell you more at the briefings. Please make sure that they are uploaded and that your GPS device launches them correctly.
  • Your friends and family can follow you thanks to SeTeTrack GPS tracking devices, (each of you will have one) and event page. The Appenninica live tracking will be posted on this link.
  • At the following link, you’ll find the Google map of the entire racecourse: Click here.  You’ll see the start, finish, feed zones, and water points.

Komoot is Appenninica’s Navigation Partner

The stages are also available on our Komoot account. Thanks to the Komoot app, it is possible to sync routes to Garmin, Wahoo, etc. Opening an account is free and it is also a great way to analyze the stages and, of course, to discover new trails and rides later on.

 

Fun ride and bike festival

On Saturday, you can take part in a non-competitive ride and check out the Appenninica Lovers MTB festival. See the FB event page. It’s going to be in Piazza Gramsci, which is the same for Appenninica check-ins.

 

Ciao from the Appenninica team.
