Stages / Stage 1

Osijek – Varaždin

Date: 19.04.2016. Stage Length: 235 km Vertical Climb: 120 hm

An ideal introductory stage. With the length of 235 kilometres and 10 kilometres of closed circuit, it allows us to get to know some of the jewels of Croatian continental tourism and present it to the world. This flat, fast stage is not particularly demanding and offers the riders, who have returned from their altitude training, a chance to get accustomed to speed and general rhythm of the race. Let us not forget that every cycling stage hides its snares, such as this one. Strong crosswinds present a potential difficulty, which could ultimately make the race extremely challenging and split the peloton into individual groups, in the end making it tough to catch up precious time.

We predict a synchronized peloton all the way with the final lap in Varaždin, which should provide us more than enough excitement with its curves 1 kilometre and 300 metres before the finish line. These final curves, with already determined position in the peloton, should play a key role in making a valuable result, as well as good support from the team to their designated sprinters. The finish line at the Varaždin’s main square makes for a setting one could only wish to experience.
