Enduro Rogla was held on first day of August in Bike Park Rogla. This time the number of riders coming to Rogla was a real surprise. In the middle of the holidays we reached a record on SloEnduro race (if we don’t count Enduro 3 Camini) with 107 riders on the start.
Race was held in two parts. Organisers prepared two different trails and gave 2h45min to the riders to ride on each trail. They were free to make as many runs as the wanted, but at the end only three best times from each trail were calculated in final result, which means there was six round at least to do to finish the race. Riders could pedal back up each time or they could use a chairlift which was a bit slower option due to a big crowd at the bottom.
Peter Mlinar and Ana Zupan took victories
In men’s category Peter Mlinar (KK Črn Trn) took a lead right at the beginning. He reached best times on both trail and his calculation of three best times on each trail was the fastest as well, so there was no doubt about his victory. Kristijan Medvešček was close on first trail, but Peter gained some more advantage on second trail, so Kristijan had to be pleased with the second position. Third place went to Austrian rider Gerd Skant (RideTSG) which was the first podium for him in SloEnduro series. Top five was concluded by Robert Kordež (Black Hole Enduro Team) and Aleš Virtič (Supertrail).
In women’s category there was six riders on the start. After first part the lead was taken by Ana Zupan (Energijateam.com) in front of a new girl on SloEnduro, from Austria Michela Thaler and Tina Rejc. On second trail positions on the were not changed, so Ana was happy with a second win in this season. Michela and Tina took second and third place, while top five was rounded by Jasmina Ribič (MTB Trbovlje Specialized) and Fleur Jeanquartier (Velochicks.at).
In junior’s category Matic Kvas (AAA Concept team) was the fastest rider this time. He took a victory in front of Matjaž Istenič and Maks Trobec (both Pedal Racing).
In Master 1 the fastest rider was Robert Kordež in front of Iztok Slapnik (Energijateam.com) and Janko Bačnar (Pedal Racing).
In Master 2 victory went toMichael Strohmayer (Redneck Riders) who was faster than Janez Golmajer (MTB Klub Kranj) on second and Stefano Sandrin (A.S.D. 360MTB) on third place.
Fastest Hoby rider was Kristijan Medvešček. Michael Brulz (Radlager Racing) took second place, while Jakob Kreisel finished on third position.
