If a team misses their start time, they will have to start at the back of the field and their time will be taken from their allocated start time.


A dynamic and challenging Prologue sets the 4Islands MTB Croatia scene in 2024. At just 12 kilometres long, with 260 metres of accumulated elevation gain, it mixes a blast across Baška pebble beach with sea-side and forest singletracks, as well as asphalt arteries which serve as connections between entertaining sections of riding. As with the marathon days to come the opening stage will also provide spectacular views across glistening bays of azure waters, over ancient limestone hills and old-growth conifer forests. Man-made marvels abound trail-side too, with historic churches and local architecture providing points of interest even in the heart of urban areas.
