Romans named Istria terra magica. Bikenauts call it cycling magic land. Here is your chance to be a cycling king or queen for a year. Long live the King and Queen of Ucka 2019!

Istria is the largest Croatian peninsula situated in the northern part of the Adriatic. Crystal clear sea surrounds its green heart with vineyards and hundred years old olive groves.

Istria is home and training ground of Martin Cotar, ex-pro cyclist and your chief guide. Each detail of every backroad in Istria lives in his muscle memory. Martin will take you on rides immersed in nature, with local winding roads leading to welcoming villages and hilltop forts.

King of Ucka is a hill climbing race open to professional and amateur cyclists. It starts from Icici, at sea level, and finishes on the highest peak of Ucka mountain – Vojak.  In total it covers 22 km with 1380 m of elevation.

On top of the excellent race organisation, Bikenauts Team will provide you with comprehensive support. You’ll feel like a winner once you reach the summit, regardless of your official result.

Ucka will reward you with the most amazing views of Kvarner islands and the city of Rijeka.
