Registration Opening Losinj (CRO)

In the middle of April, the season opener of the iXS European Downhill Cup will take place. Already last year it was proven that Croatia with its pleasant climate and unique scenery is a perfect venue for this event. The registration will open on the 14th of February 2023.

If you have already participated at last year’s European Downhill Cup opener on the Island of Losinj (CRO), you can confirm that such an early start to the season doesn't bring any disadvantages right there. The climate is perfect for racing and already on the way there it can happen that vacation feelings set in. About 300 sunny days a year and a finish area directly at the harbor, are probably optimal conditions for the European Cup to provide top racing action. For this reason, also this year the season opener will be held in Losinj, from 14th to 16th of April 2023.

The track will be challenging as usual and will test riders and equipment. Those who are successful here and bring flawless runs from start to finish can claim that they are ready for the rest of the season. For this reason, it can also be assumed that some World Cup athletes will also find their way to Losinj, to carry out final tests for the upcoming season.

To equalize the very demanding main section, there will again be a flowy entry and an urban DH part as the final section. In addition, the track crew will certainly also include a few completely new sections.

The registration for the season opener in Losinj will be open from the 14th of February 2023 from 5pm. As soon as the race is fully booked or registration closes regularly, series registrations for this year's European Cup will also no longer be possible.
