Unior Tools Team’s 2017 schedule includes all stops of UCI MTB World Cup, world, continental & national championships, festivals, national races and other events. We’ll race on total of 49 events (many have multiple disciplines or races) in 14 countries on three continents!
Unior Tools Team gets a lot of fresh energy in its eight season as the UCI Mountain Bike team. New names on the downhill team are Taylor Vernon and Rudy Cabirou that will join Jure Žabjek and Žiga Pandur in Unior’s DH team. Tanja Žakelj starts new 4-year Olympic cycle.
Ruaridh Cunningham and Reece Wilson have different backgrounds and racing history, but passion for mountain biking and racing made them both internationally recognizable Scottish gravity riders. For several years they have been one of the backbones of Unior Tools Team’s World Cup program, but the time has come to give each other one last high-five in the same jerseys and wish each other all the best in the next season.
Off-season is always better if you are somewhere warm, it’s even better if you are on the Philippines and are racing and riding with the locals. Jure did exactly that and this is photo story about it!
Racing came back to legendary track in Maribor, this time with the last race of the Slovenian and also Croatian national downhill cup. Jure Žabjek finished another great season with another victory.
