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.
Ruaridh Cunningham was sixth on the last race of the British Downhill Series, while Reece Wilson was third. The race took place on the new venue in Wales, the UK's first full scale bike park.
Spectacular downhill race was the last event of the UCI MTB World Championships in Norway, with three of our riders on the start. Best result of the day was set by Nal Otoničar – he finished 13th on the junior race. Žiga Pandur & Jure Žabjek were 43rd and 54th on the elite man race.
What a race and what a finish of the 2014 season! Tanja showed one of her best performances on the biggest race of the year, with great recovery after the crash & stop in the technical zone and amazing finish that took her to the 4th place!
