Organizer: Lost Dot


The Accursed Race is Lost Dot’s first fixed route, no-fly, off-road race.

The first edition of The Accursed Race will take riders on a journey along the roof of the Balkans, exploring arduous terrain but spectacular, constantly evolving landscapes that transform over every summit.

The 1600 km fixed route will start in Shkodër, Albania, then taking in Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Kosovo, before returning for the finishing stretch in Albania, and returning to Shkodër. The route will take in a mix of rocky doubletrack, gravel roads, tarmac, a little single-track, and minimal hike-a-bike.
