Jure Žabjek had a good season so far, with lots of good results in the iXS Europen Cup, but he was without a podium so far. He was fourth and fifth, even disqualified in Schladming. In Špičak he came back where he belongs – on podium.
It was intense race weekend with rainy conditions for the top riders on Saturday. Jure qualified as ninth and was then third in the Super Finals on Sunday.
Jure Žabjek, 3rd in Špičak: “I always do good on this course. It’s closed and with just a few line options. We had rain on qualifications and conditions were very hard for the last elite riders. Many riders before me had their run in dry, so I finished in ninth.
Sunday was a different story. My run was clean, with one mistake in the top part. I’m very happy with my result and also additionally motivated ahead of World Cup race in Switzerlands.
One iXS EDC race is still ahead of me and I will try to get back to third place in the overall standings.”
Jure is currently 6th overall, with 39 points between him and third position.
