Open Croatian Championship 2017

Croatian downhill swarm is once again moving to the Ivanščica mountainon the 24 and 25 June 2017. Mountain biking enthusiasts from the BBK Ivanščica club are organizing the 6th downhill race named DH IVA 6. The race classification will be scored for the Croatian cup and the contestants will have an opportunity to compete for the Croatian champion title.

The battle for the champion title will definitely be interesting in the technical part of the course which presents a problem to most contestants. The ones who manage best in the technical part will run into a somewhat easier lower part with many interesting bends and high speed flat out jumps. To gain the champion title full concentration and boldness of the riders will play a crucial role. The race is divided in 5 categories: Elite Men, Elite Women, Junior Men, Master Men and Recreational. Due to the „open for all“ label the race can be applied for by competitors from other countries, too.

The camp users can find toilets and drinking water from a tank.
