Tour of Croatia 2017

tour of Croatia

This year Croatia hosted for the 3rd time Tour of Croatia – great international road bike race. 6 stages were covered during April 18-23 and broadcasted by Croatian National Television and Eurosport. We can say this race is one of the most important events in Croatia, in regards to promotions of cycling in Croatia . There were 6 stages of the race, staring in Osijek and with grande finale in Zagreb, on the St. Mark Square. On the second stage, which started in Trogir (25 km west from Split) the finish was planned on 1762 meters, Sveti Jure peak located above Makarska. We are really proud that Tour of Croatia included this ride as for last 5 years our Challenging cycle tour of Croatia ends on the same peak. “Grande Finale”. However, we had really strange and unpredictable weather in April so the Sv. Jure peak was covered in snow and the racers had to finish a bit below the second highest Croatian peak.

Overall winner in 2017 was Vincenzo Nibali. Congratulations!!!

Another great event is behind us and we hope to get even more racers and teams in 2018 as well as good and normal spring weather!

Below you can enjoy some of the videos from the race.
