Once again, for the third year in a row, Croatia is hosting an international cycling race – Tour of Croatia. The route of the Stage 1 is 227 km long, connecting the cities of Osijek and Koprivnica. The route was mainly flat, allowing the riders to get introduced to the race and warm up for the following, more challenging stages. It also gave the audience in front of TV screens an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful landscape of northern Croatia.
