5 DAYS OF RACING
Prologue + 4 stages
Yes, we’re aware that the name of the race is Mitas 4 Islands, but next year we’ll be expanding a bit so don’t get confused! We will still be visiting our 4 islands (Krk, Rab, Cres and Lošinj) but in a somewhat different order and we are adding prologue
Until now, we were assigning the starting positions arbitrarily as the teams were registering for our race based on their results during the season. Next year, we will be introducing a prologue stage, a race before the race if you will. The prologue will be a relatively short stage (something around 20ish kilometers with a couple hundred meters of climbing) where all racers will get their first taste of what awaits them. This “short sprint stage” we will used for measuring your times which in turn will determine your starting block positions in the race itself.
Our baby deserves a bit of a facelift herself
Now, we can’t tell you any details regarding the changes we will be making to the trails themselves because the brainstorming session hasn’t finished yet (and there are some definitely outlandish ideas being thrown around the office these days), but rest assured that next year you will be riding some completely new parts of the 4 Islands and the trails themselves will get some rework done – hey, plastic surgery isn’t reserved only for movie stars, the rich and the powerful – our baby deserves a bit of a facelift herself!
Next year will be a mini-jubilee

So, driven by the flux of your feedback, we prepared to raise the bar even higher this season. Staged at four separate islands, the race faces you with a different challenges each day. Some islands are greener then the others; some partly rugged and barren like they have this issue to discuss with your tyres. Speedsters will surely get their daily piece of cake, but might skip the dessert at the technical freak outs; while the most of you will get emotionally trapped inside the single track web by your own delight. In short, this race might not be for anyone, but there is something in it for everyone.

You like to organise everything on your own?
Like to spend time searching the internet and have fun trying to find the most appropriate accommodation, to count the distance from an island to an island, to count how much time you need to get there? If so, this is the option for you as with Race only package you will buy starting fee and the right to start the race.
If you choose RACE ONLY without accommodation packages, we suggest to organize a support who will take care of your logistics and transfers of you, your bikes and your luggage from stage to stage (from island to island). This option is possible due to good ferry connection between islands so it is on you and your supporter to organize the whole logistic, buy ferry tickets etc.
