I am happy to announce that I am part of the Slovenian team Unior Sinter Factory Racing for 2022!!
After a decade of racing at the highest levels of downhill and cross-country, a new era for Slovenian team Unior – Sinter Factory Racing begins. Familiar faces Tanja Žakelj, Jure Žabjek & Žak Gomilšček have new teammates – Boris Režabek & myself! That means the team is also entering the world of BMX & MTB freestyle which is AMAZING!
Title sponsors of the team are two companies that each made a big impact in their area of the global cycling industry. Unior with a program of specialized cycling hand tools and Sinter with its own production of top-level organic brake pads. The team is also supported by City of Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital with multiple trail centers and pump tracks. Slovenian based support continues with BleedKit.com (disc brake bleeding kits), Bikehanic (bike & suspension service center), Kolektor & Liquishot (cordless sprayer for bike wash) and Nutrispoint (ecological functional sports nutrition). The team also has great support by world renowned brands Fox, Maxima Racing Oils, Royal Racing, 7iDP, Schwalbe, CushCore, Crankbrothers, Lizard Skins, fi’zi:k & Racing Armor Designs.
All of us have a license from Cycling club Rajd, the largest MTB & BMX club from Ljubljana, Slovenia. The club manages elite & development race teams, runs an MTB & BMX school with more than 200 kids on the program, organized international events and manages Bike Park Ljubljana, BMX Park Ljubljana and city pump tracks.
This team of five riders with more than 50 events in total on the schedule including some of the most prestigious races and competitions, they are also a stable of the Slovenian national team.
MY PLANS FOR 2022
I want to further improve my tricks, learn new ones and do ever harder and more attractive combos. Of course, I also need to perform all of this at the events. I want to go all the way to the World Cup Pro finals and compete against the best, of course I also want to achieve an even better result at the European Champs.
