Course description:

The start is from Tvrdalj square where cyclists will ride out from Stari Grad accompanied by motorcycle over the Riva. The referee will blow the whistle to start the race. 

The first 12 km of the route is on an asphalt road with mild uphills. All intersections will have police and couriers, and cyclists are asked to please respect the traffic rules and keep to the right side of the road, especially when passing through settlements. After12 km on the asphalt, there is a sharp downhill where the track turns to macadam (particular caution).

At 13 km there is a technical downturn of 200 m - this is of particular caution for those who are not used to such a ride. At 15 km, the route continues on asphalt for the next 2 km and enters a wide macadam path leading to the asphalt promenade before Vrboska (20 km).

At Vrboska there will be a secure corridor across the river and bridge. Cyclists are asked to pay attention to the sharp turnaround on the bridge. At 21 km, after passing through Vrboska, cyclists will re-enter the wide macadam path which is 9 km long. The last mile of the race and through the finish will be on asphalt. The track will be marked with arrows and strips.
