22 August 2016

With great sadness and shock we inform you that Zarja Čenilogar has passed away, following a tragic non-riding related accident that happened on the Saturday night. Zarja was a positive person, full of love for life, always curious and always with a smile on her face.

Zarja’s downhill racing career is highlighted by two overall European Downhill Cup victories, multiple national titles and other international victories. Here best results in the UCI World Cup were 8th place in Méribel in 2014 and 9th in Val di Sole in 2013. Due to the wrist injury she had to stay off her downhill bike for big part of 2016 season. She would race again this weekend on the Slovenian Cup race and later also on her bellowed track in Val di Sole.

Zarja was a great friend and a great racing companion, always full of positive energy. Zarja, we will miss you!

Our thoughts are with her family and friends.
