THE PROLOGUE

The riders will sprint off along and over the famous Baška town beach, towards the edge of town where they will start a short climb toward the pine tree forest crisscrossed with small technical trails and then double back toward the town beach.

ISLAND KRK 09.04.2019

The prologue itself takes place in Baška on Krk island

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” will be used for measuring your times which in turn will determine your starting block positions in the race itself.

This prologue stage is something we decided to go for as a way of giving the riders an action packed short introduction stage which will also double as qualifying for the 1st stage race start positions. This way all riders will have a chance to warm up a bit and check some terrain before the real 4 day insanity begins.
In a more broader view it should also allow faster riding for the whole race group since the fastest riders from the prologue will find themselves at the head of the pack from day one.

From sea level to a singltrail heaven

The riders will sprint off along and over the famous Baška town beach, towards the edge of town where they will start a short climb toward the pine tree forest crisscrossed with small technical trails and then double back toward the town beach.
From sea level onwards, our riders will begin climbing along a gravel path towards Batomalj, followed by a short technical uphill section which transfers into a short singletrail and then moving on to the steepest technical part of the climb which will take them past the church to the top of the prologue stage at around 164 meters above sea level. The combination of technical and steep uphill sections will provide strong climbers with many opportunities to shave off a couple seconds off their time.
Once at the top, there will be very little time for rest and recuperation, since the downhill part is also quite steep in the first part and fast in the second part, so those with downhill skills have some fun and catching up time themselves, leading all the way down into olive orchards and across sheep grazing fields back to Baška and through the finish line.
