Unior Tools Team faced a lot of changes during the winter, to the outsider the most noticeable are two new riders – Taylor Vernon and Rudy Cabirou. They came straight from Sanremo, from the training camp with the whole downhill team. Days on the trails were well spent and riders had a good chance to meet each other – Jure Žabjek and Žiga Pandur were of course also there, test the equipment and improve of riding skills.
But this week was all about Ljubljana, Unior and team presentation. All team riders revealed their plans for the season on the official launch in Ljubljana, at the same time we had a good chance to show Ljubljana to our friends and team partners from abroad. We all had good time – on the trails, in the city, on the presentation and on the dinner.
Video of the official team presentation also went live on Facebook, you can still take a look at it here:
Video from the event of course also include Tanja Žakelj, Filip Flisar and Kevin Berginc, who all share their thought on racing, team and upcoming events.
On the last day of Unior Tools Team experience we visited the headquarters of our title sponsor. Unior is producing tools since 1919, from there to now the company has grown in one of the leaders of the metal processing industry and had proudly retained almost whole production in Europe. You can experience part of the factory tour through pictures, but for the real deal you will have to visit Zreče and have the privilege to enter the facilities.
Week with team riders, staff and friends was a blast and we can’t wait to do something like this again next year!
