Bikerumor Pic Of The Day: Vučedol, Vukovar, Croatia

VUcedol (119 of 211)

Photo submitted by Gordan, “This was taken on Vučedol XC race we organized on our trail last month. This part of the forrest was infested for 20 years with land mines left from the 1991 civil war. Two years ago it was cleaned and now we’ve built a sick trail to ride and share! : )”

We always love to see your photos and would like to show them to the world here on the Pic Of The Day. Send in your photo with a brief description here.

You’re a pretty bad a$$ biker in my book if you ride anywhere where the word “landmine” can be used. Even if it is in the past tense.

Kudos. Biking makes the wold a better place.

I concur with Jason.

Hahaha, ekstra.

Nice job Gordan. The race was amazing, but a bit too much climbing for my taste. ;)

That’s why we let younger riders first. If there are some left, we’ll have an open spot in our riding crew.

DO NOT go off the trail………. (!!!!)

Ha! tratincica, gives a whole new meaning to DNF!
But seriously, props to the folks who risked their lives to clear those gawd-awful devices. If I ever meet you, I’ll buy you a beer.

Thanx Bikerumor, such a nice surprise this morning :)

Good on you guys. I had a visit to Croatia a few years ago and was constantly shocked at the “Beware- potential minefield ahead” signs when hiking. All in the middle of gorgeous, amazing landscapes. Those things are one of mankind’s worst inventions.

our trails are so good, guaranteed to blow you away, hahahahahahaha :D
