Path description:

Close start begins at Tvrdalj square where accompanied by motorcycles leave Stari Grad along Riva (waterfront) when the referee gives the race start signal. The first 12 km is an asphalt road with a slight rise. Although police and security guards will be at every crossroad, please stick to the traffic rules and drive on the right side of the road, particularly when going through settlements. After the 12 km long asphalted downhill road you will arrive to a sharp bend and then continue on the macadam road (particular caution).
On the 13th kilometre of the road there is a 200 metres long technical descend so those not familiar with such driving shall be very careful. On the 15th km you will again drive on the asphalt road for the next 2 km and then again on the macadam road which exits to the asphalted promenade before Vrboska village (20 km). In Vrboska you will drive along the corridor through the waterfront and bridge and please take care of the sharp turn on the bridge. (21 km) Once passed Vrboska, you will re-enter the 9 km long wide macadam road and when you again find yourself on the asphalt it means that you are in the last kilometre of the race and until the very end you will ride on the asphalted road. The path will be marked with arrows and bends.
