Stages / Stage 4

Crikvenica – Učka

Date: 22.04.2016. Stage Length: 122 km Vertical Climb: 3000 hm

A climber’s stage. The crown jewel. This year it starts in Crikvenica, passes through Novi Vinodolski, Križišće and Kraljevica. It’s a terrain which does not provide enough opportunity to catch a bit of breath. Only just then come the most demanding parts, starting in Bakarac and after 17 kilometres end on an altitude of 970 metres. This ascend won’t be exactly crucial, but surely it will leave only a small amount of leg power.

The descend to Grobnik and Rijeka will secure enough time for the riders to catch a breather and have much needed energy snack for the final, 22 kilometre climb. Passing through Rijeka and Opatija will visually spice up the finale.

The first part of the climb to Vojak is not particularly challenging, but only when we get to the last 8 kilometres and several 18% inclines, then we would be able to experience somewhat of a natural selection. Contenders falling behind with no particular change in rhythm. The last 3 kilometres are where riders literally stick to the road with low glycogen levels after a total of 3000 metres of climbing, although the length of the stage is only 122 kilometres. The spectacle is guaranteed. We could only hope the weather will play nice so we could gaze upon the Kvarner bay and the whole region of Istria. The whole globe will enjoy the sport and the scenery on this, what would seem as the most beautiful balcony of the world.
