The 25th Tour of Slovenia will feature five days of non-stop entertainment, five stages, and a time trial from Trebnje to Novo mesto.

This year’s edition of the Tour of Slovenia will kick off in Lendava on June 13 and conclude in Novo mesto on June 17. The queen stage from Ljubljana to Kamnik will be held on June 16. Both TV Slovenia and Eurosport will broadcast the events live.

Roglič’s preparation for Tour de France
The Tour of Slovenia will be the highlight of the season for most Slovenian teams. The race will also serve as a preparation for the Tour de France for the best foreign teams. Primož Roglič (LottoNL-Jumbo), the winner of the 2015 Tour of Slovenia, has also confirmed his participation in this year's Tour of Slovenia.

A detour to Hungary

The first stage of the race (Lendava to Murska Sobota; 155 kilometres) will be a sprinter’s stage, and it will run through parts of Hungary.

The fourth stage will be the so-called queen stage (Ljubljana-Kamnik), while the fifth stage will be a time trial from Trebnje to Novo mesto (21.6 kilometres).
