Team Garmin MTB grabbed the opportunity to participate at the inaugural Appenninica MTB Stage race and what a unique, quintessentially Italian experience it turned out to be.
The route, the organization, the host villages and the camaraderie between riders surpassed all our expectations.

In short your event was awesome. I have never left a stage race event after a week or work and riding and thought ”wow I can’t wait for next year already. The Appeninnica did that for me. I made lots of new friends too.

Trails and the area – Unspoilt and Natural – Just WOW.

The food zones at the race had good quality and sweet and savoury things. Thats so important.

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.

We really like it when races are small as it feels like you are part of a family by the end of the race.

Cosa  mi è piaciuto di più? Lo staff!
L’organizzazione sotto la guida di Beppe e Milena è stata qualcosa di eccezionale, mi sono sentito servito e riverito ogni istante, pronti a risolvere qualsiasi esigenza, dal primo all’ultimo corridore.
Dai percorsi non sapevo cosa aspettarmi, pensavo fosse una gara più easy, invece ogni giorno bisognava essere pronti a tutto.
Paesaggi da brividi, single track da togliere il fiato con discese divertiti e salite di tutti i tipi.
Non cambierei nulla, la rifarei uguale al 2019 con 2 tappe uguali, quella del corno alla scale! Sogno ogni notte quel posto ♥.
Siete stati davvero bravi, io sono ancora emozionato!
