Special Guests

Miran Stanovnik

V času, ko se oči ljubiteljev hitrega motociklizma obračajo proti Buenos Airesu, kjer bo 2. januarja start 37-tega relija Dakar, je Miran Stanovnik, 18-kratni udeleženec te dirke, dokončno potrdil, da ga na tokratni dirki ne bo. S puščavskim lisjakom smo se pogovarjali o razlogih za takšno odločitev, o siceršnji psihofizični pripravljenosti in o njegovih napovedih za prihajajoči reli.

Pavlin

Who am I, and why should you trust me? This is a good question, isn’t it? My name is Pavlin and I am a motorcycle traveler. I am just an average guy, who wanted to change his routine existence. About fifteen years ago I decided to see the world and since then I never stopped traveling. Some people said that I get crazy… maybe, but please tell me, what you did in the last 15 years? Did you enjoy every single moment of your life?

Daniele Donin

Daniele Donin, was born in Chioggia (Ve) in 1980, graduated in Conservation of Cultural Heritage in Venice, today he lives and works in Milan. A man of adventure, sportsman, a deep lover of the mountains and nature, on his BMW R 1200 GS ADV (my 2008) motorcycle he travelled alone through the roads of more than 80 countries.

His way of travelling is “total”, very tied to the road and immersed in the local reality, it has led him to encounter distant and ancient cultures, hidden behind steppes, deserts, forests, inaccessible mountains and extreme climates. In the world of travel motorcycling, he is undoubtedly considered an adventurer of today, but with an out of the ordinary sensitivity developed thanks to the inevitable reflections that arise in those who travel by measuring themselves only with themselves and their limits. Unable to be satisfied with this shore of the horizon and always in search of himself, he manages to find himself on the road, on a motorcycle, the important thing for him is to live every moment intensely, to breathe that hidden dimension, sometimes secret, where senses and emotions blend together in the beautiful adventure of life. Among his most important and demanding travels outside Europe, we remember Italy – Russia – Mongolia (2010), Italy – Turkey – Iran (2013), Patagonia (2014), Italy – Russia – Pamir (2015), Alaska – Canada – USA (2016), USA – Mexico (2017), Central America (2018), Italy – Turkey- Iraq (2018), Colombia – Ecuador – Peru – Bolivia – Argentina – Paraguay – Brazil – Uruguay (2019). Considered by some to be “the Italian Robert Pirsig” thanks to his very poetic and philosophical way of living and telling, in 2016 he wrote “The roads and the days”(Le strade e i giorni), his first long story of a trip to Asia that circulates freely because, as he says, it cannot be sold, because it speaks of emotions that were given to him by the Road and the Journey. In 2021 he published his second book “The breath of the road” (Il respiro della strada) with Minerva Edizioni, the proceeds of which will be donated entirely to the non-profit organization “Bambini nel Deserto” which actively operates in West Africa.

Training Courses

  • One of our key visions at FPF is not only to ride but to leave the festival with more than just a hangover! Basic, advanced and skills training are important and if you can have fun and learn something new then you had a good weekend.
  • Basic and Advanced Training courses are available for all levels of riders. Enduro, ADV Off-Road and full ON-Road lessons in small groups to improve your skills and learn a little more each day. If you are new and just want to learn how to stand or if you want to learn how to do that perfect stop or slide on the dirt join one of our classes at the festival.
  • All courses are subsidised included in your ticket with a small additional fee to reserve.
  • Also, we have some special classes led by Miran Stavnovnik himself for the advanced riders, an opportunity to train with 18 times Dakar racer and world rider. These classes are limited so be sure to buy early and book fast. These classes will be open to all but are at an additional cost payable when you book via the activities booking APP.

Note: Reservations for classes can be made via the activities booking app which will be sent to you when you register for the festival. Classes may be extended or replicated depending on demand.

Skills Test Track

  • Next to Camping Stella Maris, we will have an off-road / on-road skills challenge track for you to try out your riding skills. A series of challenges ranging from basic control to a little fun and crazy to test just how well you can control your machine and think on two wheels.
  • Entry is free to everyone and classes will be divided into under 450cc, under 700cc and over  700cc motorcycles. Points awarded for challenges or penalties and all in the name of good fun.
  • Qualifiers will be held Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning with the finals being held on Saturday afternoon. Each participant will be allowed 2 runs on the track for qualifiers and the top 3 point scorers in each category will qualify for the finals.

Note: Full protective gear must be worn by all participants at all times including clothing, helmet, gloves and boots. Bikes will be classed by their engine size and not weight.

Survival Skills on Motorbike

  • All new this festival is the motorcycle survival course. Discover and learn what you really need to survive and navigate on a motorcycle out in the wild. Brought to us by the incredible team from WILDEMILIA EXPERIENCE.
  • “The keyword of our vision is to live not to survive in the nature, we are WILDEMILIA EXPERIENCE, the project is born in Italy for adventurers from all over Europe. Our operating base is located between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, where we can still find Wild and Unexplored places. The vision of traditional bushcraft blends with our love for motorcycles in unique and innovative motorcycle-bushcraft experiences. The Experiences we offer are chosen on the basis of our knowledge, formed from years lived in nature and on our bikes.. The ancient Art of Hunting, learned by our fathers and practised with deep respect to Mother Nature, taught us the notions to live the woods in harmony. In our proposals, you will not find exalted people who will try to teach you how to light a fire with a stick, but you can rely on expert instructors who advise you to take two lighters with you in case one does not work.”
  • Each one of the activities at the base of our experience is specially chosen to teach you all the skills to appreciate nature and facing every outdoor situation:
  • Off-road motorcycle. –  Basic Techniques  –  Team building and team safety  –  Land navigation and water purification techniques  –  How to equip a camp, using motorcycles and bushcraft skills.  –  Food Foraging and CookOut techniques with special attention on fire building in safety

Note: Reservations for classes can be made via the activities booking app which will be sent to you when you register for the festival. These classes have an extra cost at a discount to festival members. Classes may be extended or replicated depending on demand.

Motorbike Services

  • We come to ride and our machines are the most important tool we have. At base camp and nearby there will be a range of services for you and your motorbike to keep you riding.
  • Bike wash available to clean up after a long day in the dirt or when you head home – free to full access tickets and subsidised for open campers.
  • A tyre change facility will be available either in camp or at a shop nearby in Umag at a special price for festival members where you can get new tyres, change and repair if needed.
  • A mobile mechanic for those basic mechanical repairs will also be available for festival-goers and special deals at a shop nearby for those who need a little more fixing.
  • 24-hour road assistance is also available throughout the festival and Istria in case of a breakdown or worse. We will collect you and your bike and bring you back to Base Camp where you can arrange repairs or further transport home.

Note: Whilst we will do our best to provide these facilities throughout the festival some services may depend on the operating times of the personnel or the service shops.

Camp Games and Entertainment

  • For those staying in the camp at Camping Stella Maris, there will be entertainment and some fun competitions after dinner to see who reigns as the FPF International Camp Games Champion.
  • Music and Special Guests on Thursday and Friday night in the camp and the main evening event on Saturday night at the ATP Complex Stage.
  • Also a series of fun challenges for all such as boot throwing, tyre toss, bike lift and more in camp. Qualifiers will be held on Thursday and Friday evening with the finals on Saturday afternoon. Some prizes from our partners and FPF and free beer for the winners! Individuals and Group Challenges.
  • Let´s see who and what nation will take the 2021 Camp Challenge Trophy Home.

Note: Depending on COVID restrictions some entertainment or competitions may be adjusted, cancelled or changed at the discretion of the FPF Organizers.

Expo / Partners Village

  • Our vision is always clear at Four Points Festivals where we come to ride and not walk around looking at things so our concept of an expo or product village is different. We encourage real-world testing, demonstrations and customer experience with every product or exhibitor.
  • The expo this year at the Four Points Festival Croatia 2021 will be reduced due to COVID concerns however we still have our partners and key players on site showing the best they have from luggage, clothing, camping, adventure sports, tours and more.
  • The partner village will be open each afternoon and evening and access is free to all Festival ticket holders with special festival deals and prices available for them.
  • Entrance Tickets for the general public to the expo will be available on-site at the door at 15€ for adults, 8€ for under 18-year-olds, and free for under 12-year-olds.

Note: Depending on COVID restrictions the full expo may have limited public access this year however all key partners and exhibitors will still be there for festival goers.
