BDS race is always special on its own, BDS weekend in Fort William is on the whole new level, almost like World Cup. UK’s best riders were on the race, among them also Ruaridh and Reece. Ruaridh did especially good, finishing in top-10.
Collection of national titles just got bigger! For Zarja this is 5th elite national title, for Jure 2nd in a row! Team success is even bigger thanks to Žiga’s third place and great results of our Slovenian development team.
Jure Žabjek was 5th, Žiga Pandur was 6th – great results on the opening round of iXS European Cup 2016. Zarja Černilogar was also racing, but with lots of pain in her hand and not such a shiny final result.
Tanja continues with a series of strong results on the European Championships, today she finished 7th in the elite women race. Again she felt back after the start and showed very strong performance in the second half of the race.
29th place is far from expectations and goals, but unfortunately this is Tanja Žakelj's outcome on the first round of the World Cup. After a good start everything went wrong – two flats, loose chain, loss of rhythm and a small crash for the end. We hope that we used the »bonus« for the season...
Ruaridh survived the crazy course through the »jungle« of tropical Queensland. He was 25th in the finals, which is not a bad result, but he still has mixed feeling about it. Upside od the day and the whole weekend are his times on the top, technical sections.
Downhill Lošinj is a UCI C1 race that is getting somewhat of a legendary status – thanks to scenery and location. It also proved successful for our team: together Zarja, Jure and Žiga took first, second and third place.
