Slovenian cycling federation awarded best riders & teams of the 2014 season, and again the top honors also went to our team. Tanja Žakelj is best female rider of the year (for the fifth time in her career!), Unior Tools Team is best MTB team.
Nejc Rutar was one of the first riders that got his hands on the latest backpack from CamelBak. Kudu is and enduro/all-mountain oriented product, full of nice features that make riding & racing more convenient. Nejc is not a fan of backpacks, but he found this one very practical and used it on many races.
Now she really deserves a holiday! Tanja just came from the last race of the season – stage race Tradewinds Langkawi International Mountain Bike Challenge that took place in Langkawi in Malaysia. Tanja did an excellent job and finished second in the elite women category.
Big finals of the Enduro World Series once again took place in the Italian costal town of Finale Ligure, again on the great trails that everybody likes so much. We had four riders on the start – our enduro riders Nejc and Anže had a company of our downhillers Ruaridh and Žiga.
Jure Žabjek was very fast, but that alone is not enough. This was once again confirmed on the iXS EDC finals in Leogang, where Jure crashed in the seeding run and in the finals. However, last crash was unavoidable.
