We have finally put the 2018 Mitas 4 Islands behind us
Everyone agreed that this year’s race was definitely the toughest yet. This is true in multiple dimensions: from the technicality of the trails themselves to the raised level of teams competing in the elite categories, from the number of injuries and equipment breakages to the raised standards and increased challenges due to the inclusion of Mitas 4 Islands into the UCI family – the race has definitely moved on to the next level.
There’s no rest for the wicked, though, and the team is already back in the office and working hard on the “boring” part of preparing for the 2019 stage race – logistics, planning, lots of emails and communication… We can’t wait to get back on working on the trails and testing out some new ideas that we have!
Next year will be a mini-jubilee
We are planning some changes and surprises for the 5th Mitas 4 Islands stage race. Yes, yes, we know that everyone likes the current setup, and we love it too – this monster of ours just seems to need some extra new bits and pieces to make it complete, heheh. We’re not going to tell you what exact changes are coming up just yet – you’ll have to keep following our dispatches here on the website and beg for more!
In any case, we’re already hard at work on the 2019 Mitas 4 Islands and we have some cool ideas about how to celebrate our baby’s 5th birthday!
In the next couple of days and weeks you can expect more updates about next year’s 4 Islands, and if there are any among you who are already eager and willing to give it another go next year – we will be accepting your registrations for the 2019 race starting with June 1st 2018! Come and get it while it’s hot, folks, don’t miss out your chance to experience this unique race in the world of mountainbiking, visit Croatia and be amazed by the sights, smells and sounds and rip some serious rocky trails – if you feel you’re tough enough to join us.
Unique race in the world of MTB
We won’t say it’s a race for everyone…because – it isn’t!
But it is a race for MTB fans ready to experience a powerful mix of breathtaking trails, pains and pleasure, partners and rivals and the race where all those who reach the finish line are – winners!
We won’t say this is the toughest race ever…it’s probably not! But we know it’s not often that you experience such diversity of the terrain, sharp and steep climbs and and fast and technically demanding descents where only the bravest will let the brakes all the way.
We won’t say that this is the most beautiful race…beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. But it’s the race along single trails on the coastline with steep climbs to the mountain tops awarding bikers with magnificent views of unspoiled nature and villages over thousand years old….Oh yes…we definitely can say this race is one of the most beautiful in the world!
