The challenge 🇭🇷

The track in Losinj is not only unique, but also represents an extremely demanding challenge with its 1.35 km and 245 meters of depth. The rocky terrain, paired with huge jumps, leads the riders through various sections. These are characterized by rocks, small cliffs and boulders. A forest section with good grip offers a brief recovery before the final sprint demands the last of your strength.

Previous race 🏁

Last year's final was a real rollercoaster, characterized by rain, mud and wind, which raised the level of difficulty to a new level. In the Elite Men class, Adam Rojcek (🇸🇰 - Osmos Gravity Team) surprised everyone with a masterful line choice and secured first place with a time of 2:09.151 minutes. In the Elite Women class, Léona Pierrini (🇫🇷 - Union Sinter Factory Racing Team) delivered an equally exciting race and secured victory in only her second Elite season.

"At the start of the race, I was confident in my abilities and all the hard work I've put into this sport. The run was really at the limit, which is why I'm now very happy about this success."
