UNIQUE RACE IN THE WORLD OF MTB

When we said 4 Islands to be a unique race in the world of MTB
it was not something we came up with, but what you told us.
2019 edition will give you 5 days of racing for 5th anniversary.

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!

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.

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)
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 (13 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.

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.
