The 24th edition of the international cycling race XCO Samobor is organized by BBK Šišmiš, the oldest active MTB cycling club in Croatia.

The race, which will take place on Sunday, June 18th, will be held along a very attractive course in the area of Park Forest Tepec, with the start and finish in Samobor’s main square. 

The route is known among competitors for its exceptional physical and technical demands, and as such, requires maximum commitment and concentration by competitors. What characterizes this route are the difficult but attractive "boulder" descents and the equally demanding descent down the stairs to the foot of Samobor old town.

In addition, the route offers attractive downhill racing through some of the most beautiful parts of Samobor including the city's main square, Park Forest Tepec, around the Chapel of St. Anne, the old town, Samobor Museum, and much more. 


Category to 11 and 13 is scheduled for 9 am 

Category to 14 and 15 will start at 10 am 

Seniors, recreational riders, and cadets will start at 11 am

Seniors and juniors will start at 13:30 pm

The day program at King Tomislav Square will end around 17:00. 

The race is listed in the International Cycling Federation and is scored for the Croatian Cup and the Cup of Slovenia. Around 300 participants are expected from all over Europe, bringing their physical and technical abilities to the town of Samobor for this highly anticipated event.
