Mark October 10, 2020 on your calendar as “Epic Ride Day,” that is when the Istria300 starts from Poreč, a delightful village on the Adriatic Coast of Croatia.  With the motto “Ride your Limits,” the 300km event offers beautiful, challenging and perfect conditions for gran fondo cyclists to test their limits.


In announcing the race, Event Director Julius Rupitsch said, “In Poreč we have found the perfect environment to organize an innovative and modern cycling event with international appeal.”

With 300, 235 and 155 kilometer routes on roads used in the Tour of Croatia there is a ride for every ability.  In addition, the weekend includes a cycling expo filled with the latest bits, cycling specific lectures, as well as activities in Poreč for family to enjoy while you suffer on the stunning roads of Istria.


Race Director Vladimir Miholjevic knows what cyclists want in an 300km challenge.  As a professional World Tour rider, Olympian, Sports Director for team Bahrain Merida, and organizer of the Tour of Croatia/CRO Race, you can expect the Istria300 to offer an unforgettable Pro-Like experience.


Discounted pre-registration is available online now, with full registration beginning December 10, 2019 when the final route is announced.
