Race Around Slovenia starts tomorrow

may 2014

race around slovenia starts tomorrow

Today, early morning, we are leaving for Postojna, the start and finish of our first ultra marathon this year. The caravan with the riders will go directly from Dobra Voda. The pace car will leave from Prague and go via Brno to pick up all the team members who are not from South Bohemia. First things to do will be the routine procedures - team briefings, and technical inspections of cars and bikes. The start is after 8 pm on Thursday. Final order will be drawn today at the traditional gala evening. This year`s Race Around Slovenia is different for us because we will go as a two-person team for the first time. Our goal is to finish in around 46 hours, i.e. average speed of 26,9 km/h. The current start list of our category contains 14 teams. The route is 1,235 km long, with 13,000 m of elevation. To win our category the fastest teams would have to maintain average around 33 km/h, i.e. finish in 37 hours! For Stepan this will be his first ultra marathon, for Jira it is part of his preparations for Race Around Ireland in September this year.
