It’s June of 2021.
A long row of cars with bicycles on the roofs, in the trunks and on the trailers, filling the ferries to Rab Island. Some familiar but also unknown faces, conversations about the long dark winter, showing new gadgets and bikes, and one positive nervousness and excitement because of the opportunity to hang out again at Husqvarna Adria Bike Series races.

A long row of cars with bicycles on the roofs ……. on the ferries to Rab Island ……. excitement because of the opportunity to hang out again at Husqvarna Adria Bike Series races. Rab Island Hero – June 18th, 2022.
Last season Rab proved what no one really doubted. It’s a small pearl for mountain biking. So much diversity in a very small area, accessible, mild Mediterranean climate and attractive single-trails network that stretches all over the island.
The cyclists are required to be adaptable and have a smart bike set-up, while the trail itself offers incredible panoramic sceneries and views of Velebit mountain, neighboring islands & islets and the crystal blue sea, as far as the eye can see. Hard stone surface, sandy parts, stone crags without vegetation, deep Mediterranean coniferous forests, fun singles and fast “gravel” sections.
Hardtail, Fully or Gravel? Oh, yes, you can. At the finish line we’ll see who chose wisely, and whose theory is just a theory.
There’s another very important thing regarding the Island Hero race. Namely, we have left the designing, tracing and marking of the trails to those who know the best what the island has to offer, so we joined our forces with BK Mag, local club from the Rab Island, who brings you the Rab Island in its best edition.
What you will not find on Strava and similar services, what you will not find in any tourist brochure, you will get in this race. Rab Island at its best.
Unique, extraordinary, excellent. Heroic.
Island Hero. Just for one day.
