WE ARE ANNOUNCING THE MTB OPENING SEASON WEEKEND

Vodice, 17.04 – 19.04.

It’s April. April in Dalmatia. It’s time to ride, it’s time for the first real cycling weekend of the season. We are announcing the MTB OPENING SEASON WEEKEND 2020.

A place where everything revolves around a bike. Dalmatia in April. Because the Dalmatiner MTB marathon was moved to April this year.

The first reason is that Dalmatia offers the perfect climate for cycling at that time of year. Another reason is that at the same time one of the longest running and most famous XCO races in Croatia will take place – the MTB CROATIA CUP in Vodice. So we decided to combine everything together, add a little fun for children and adults and invite all of you to come to Vodice for the first time this year.

The event is called 2020 OPENING SEASON WEEKEND and it will take place from April 17th to  until April 19th in Vodice.

The main events of the weekend are the DALMATINER MTB MARATHON on Saturday and the MTB XCO CROATIA CUP on Sunday. A Marathon and a Cross country race. Or XCM and XCO if you will. 

The OPENING SEASON WEEKEND will be accompanied by two other races: a Kids race and Alka on bikes – that’s when you ride a bike and with a long spear (stick) you try to hit the “srida”.

On Friday night we will be entertained by a DJ and on Saturday night by a live gig in the town center. Just for you. Because a party is as important as the race itself! 

The weekend schedule is below and we will be announcing the accommodation offer soon!
