The three-day event will take place from September 2 – 4, 2016. “TransDinara Marathon is an international three-day mountain-cycling race (stage race, XCP), which aims to bring together professionals and recreational cyclists from Croatia and the wider region and to take them through the probably harshest Croatian territory (of 226 km) while offering the highest level of technical organization and hospitality possible. TransDinara marathon is the most challenging stage MTB race in Croatia and among the most challenging in the region, where competitors deal with long distances and differences in height during the three-day competition,” said Medvešek, noting that this is the second such race, while the first took place in 2014.
The first stage is 82 km long and goes from Trilj to Kamešnica and Vrdovo. The second 94 km: Vrdovo – Dinara – Vrlika and the final stage of 50 km goes from Vrlika to Dinara finishing at the Knin fotress.
Medvšek said, that the number of cyclists participating in the race is limited to 100, while surely the same number of people, if not more will have to take care about the technical and escorting part.
The Head of the HGSS Vinko Prizmić, speaking about this very important event said, that it had a much more important content apart from the sporting one.
“The main goal of the race is to promote tourism and discovering of the untouched nature in the most beautiful part of Croatia. This is an opportunity for the local areas to present their tourism offer, especially in this mountain area”, said Prizmić.
Along with the media representatives and the members of the HGSS and the Croatian Cycling Federation, Andriana Ivković (Trilj tourist board) and Monika Vrgoč (Sinj tourist board) were present to support the organizers in preparations of this important tourist and sporting event.
