Is This the 2018 Losinj, Croatia World Cup Track? 23

Ziga Pandur of the Unior Tools World Cup team takes you for a ride down the track currently being used for racing in Losinj, Croatia. Is this what will await the riders in April when the World Cup hits these shores? Time will tell...

Updated with event video from last UCI C1 race held at the venue:

    “More rocks than Charlie Sheen’s coffee table on a Saturday night.” (Can’t take credit for that one, first read it here, or PB, or Bike mag, etc.)

    Well GoPro edits can look deceiving as we have seen in the past but this does look a bit tame but then again we had champs in cairns so what the hell at least here they dont need to fear any snake but the Snake Bite!

    Does no one think its a bad idea to line almost every inch of the track with literal ROCK WALLS?? They'll have some big holes to fill after the Bulldog smashes through a couple times..

    The only thing rockier than that track, is my career after punching Kabush...

    We're still a few months out, let's see what they can put together.

    this track eats tires and rims for breakfast before snake-biting for lunch and some skin as dinner

    I really can't see that being used, not exactly world class standard trails, and that ending could work if it was a typical urban downhill section but its more like a pedal to the shops.

    *Every rider buys a gimbal for their gopro before the first race*

    Also, overheard in the pits will be, "Do you go around that rock or jump it? No the other one, the bigger more grey one...err, uh...forget it."

    So. No race in US but one on this track? Ok. Cool. Just wanted to make sure.

    A crappy race course and not having a race in the US are mutually exclusive.

    Some Maxxis Hookworms and a wood loop and this track is dialed. Fuck it, race entry should come with a track suit, gold chains, and a copy of Behind Enemy Lines.

    Yes it is. This is the Track for WC1. A few races for Slovenian cup were held there. Track is rocky AF, rocks are sharp. It will be a race of punctures and broken wheels
    As far as I know, work is still to be done on the track, so this is probably not exactly what it will look like but you get the picture... It is located on the beautiful island of Lošinj so bring your swimwear!

    do the races generally finish in town like that or any idea if the WC would end at the road where the dirt ends? and the rocks look BRUTAL on tires / wheels!

  • numerik

    WC will end in the town, right by the sea, yes the rocks are sharp, there is no incline and it is rougher than it looks on videos. Bug eye view 360

    rad, thanks for the info. and yeah it looks painfully rough!

    uhhh... Looks like one of those novelty DH races where the track goes through some historic ruins and then an urban section to show the public how cool mountain bikers are at the cost of giving them a decent track.

    Hit the nail on the head... more novelty than actual gnar. Finishing in town?? Can you imagine if it rains and they're running spikes for the mud, and then try to ice skate the final urban section...

    That urban finish looks horrible....

  • Aushred

    11/15/2017 3:18 AM

    Yeah, not really World Cup DH with the urban in there, seems freakin crazy to me to have that in there
