LOGISTICS:

Mitas 4 Islands MTB stage race is unique also due to its “logistic” and daily transfers from an island to an island

If you choose RACE ONLY option, 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.

Important: Race only package can be, at any time, but latest at 1st April 2019, upgraded to other packages that we are offering (Race+hotels+logistics and Race+boat+logistics) if they are still available.

PARTICIPANTS without accommodation package will not have organised transfer to islands Rab and Cres, we highly recommend to check ferry lines before race
