Unior Tools Team gets a lot of fresh energy in its eight season as the UCI Mountain Bike team. New names on the downhill team are Taylor Vernon and Rudy Cabirou that will join Jure Žabjek and Žiga Pandur in Unior’s DH team. Tanja Žakelj starts new 4-year Olympic cycle.
Racing came back to legendary track in Maribor, this time with the last race of the Slovenian and also Croatian national downhill cup. Jure Žabjek finished another great season with another victory.
Ruaridh Cunningham and Reece Wilson have different backgrounds and racing history, but passion for mountain biking and racing made them both internationally recognizable Scottish gravity riders. For several years they have been one of the backbones of Unior Tools Team’s World Cup program, but the time has come to give each other one last high-five in the same jerseys and wish each other all the best in the next season.
Hardest DH track, limits of DH racing, only for the strongest… This is Red Bull Hardline. Things got crazy in Wales for a third year in a row and Ruaridh again exceled. He was 2nd, only Bernard Kerr was faster this year.
Off-season is always better if you are somewhere warm, it’s even better if you are on the Philippines and are racing and riding with the locals. Jure did exactly that and this is photo story about it!
Jure Žabjek “survived” the crazy track in Val di Sole and finished the championships in 30th place! He improved on his result from Andorra and showed that he has what it takes to master the hardest of the events.
