This year’s Tour of Croatia is one day and one stage longer! Riders from 20 teams will start the race in Osijek on April 19th. The first 244 km long stage will finish in a beautiful baroque city of Varaždin. The second stage starts in a mesmerizing UNESCO’s World Heritage Site National Park Plitvice and finishes in Split, Croatia’s second largest city. The third leg is a bit shorter, but no slouch. It starts in Makarska and finishes after 193 km in another National Park, Krka. Stage 4 starts in Crikvenica, goes through Rijeka, Opatija and strongly finishes with a tortuous climb to Učka mountain range, one of many Nature parks in Croatia. The fifth stage is a team time trial, a 41 kilometre sprint from Poreč to Umag. Ultimately, on April 24th, a 160 kilometre leg from Lifeclass terme Sv. Martin na Muri to Zagreb on St. Mark’s square, on which the final ceremony will take place.
