17 December 2015    Jure   Tanja  


This is sixth Slovenian rider of the year title for Tanja Žakelj, who crowned her season with 4th place on the European Cross-Country Championships, 6th place in Windham and national XCO title. Road cyclist Simon Špilak (Team Katusha) was selected as the best male rider of the season.

Jure Žabjek won the European Downhill Championships, took the national title, won the Slovenian DH Cup, was on the podiums of the iXS races, etc. – more than enough reasons to take the award for special achievements.

Unior Tools Team was selected as best MTB team of the year.

Slovenian Cycling Federation also honored Gorazd Stražišar, our great friend and supporter, who died in an accident two years ago. Gorazd was mountain bike constructor, writer, bike park owner, advocate and much more, but most of all – he was mountain biker!
