A Brand new track for 2018!!
Losinj is beautiful…. And its hand built track is extremely challenging!!
Just about 2 minutes long but nevertheless it’s going to be super physical with a whole host of line choices for the riders to negotiate – its tight, rocky and super-technical – in fact the kind of terrain that the team should eat up!
