4fun Krokar enduro race is successfully behind us. New location from SloEnduro map has proven itself, and more than 100 competitors from 4 different countries showed us it was going to be an interesting event. Trail was slippery and wet due to the heavy rain the day before, but has dried up through the race, and the sun was shining just until a bit before finish, when it started to rain again. Since there was only one trail, opened 4 hours to race it, the competitors had to develop a good strategy to get the fastest 4 rides written down in the results.
Peter Mlinar and Tanja Žakelj were the fastest
The fastest man in absolute category with 89 ranked riders was Peter Mlinar (KK Črn Trn). With his time in the very first run he threw a bone to other riders. His closest oponent was Robi Kordež (Black Hole Enduro Team), who was only 13 seconds behind him. Third place was divided between Kristijan Medvešček and Jaka Tancik (Energijateam.com). In top 5 also finished young Jan Štucin (Pedal Racing Team).
Womens category race was won by Tanja Žakelj (Unior Tools Team), more known as a very successful cross country racer, who likes to brighten up her trainings also with enduro bike, and we certainly will see her at the enduro startline again. Second place was taken by Urška Kovče (Energijateam.com), while third spot went to new face on the scene Jasmina Ribič (MTB Trgovlje Specialized).

Beside the fastest riders in absolute category, the winner in Junior category was Grega Žvan (MBK SPORTR.SI) in front of rookie Matej Grnjak (Black Hole Enduro Team).
