MITAS 4 ISLANDS MTB STAGE RACE 2017

19.04.2017. - 22.04.2017.

Baska, island Krk


We won’t say it’s a race for everyone…because – it isn’t!

But it is a race for MTB fans ready to experience a powerful mix of breathtaking trails, pains and pleasure, partners and rivals and the race where all those who reach the finish line are – winners!

We won’t say this is the toughest race ever…it’s probably not! But we know it’s not often that you experience such diversity of the terrain, sharp and steep climbs and and fast and technically demanding descents where only the bravest will let the brakes all the way.

We won’t say that this is the most beautiful race…beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. But it’s the race along single trails on the coastline with steep climbs to the mountain tops awarding bikers with magnificent views of unspoiled nature and villages over thousand years old….Oh yes…we definitely can say this race is one of the most beautiful in the world!


“Well, the logo “a unique race in the world of mtb”is not a lie, no, by combining the authentic atmosphere of a small race with the professional level of the biggest in an environment that is so strange, well, unique is the least we can say! Great, unforgettable, fantastic,.. , are some other words to describe it too.”
Wouter Cleppe, Belgija
