Marko ali Tweety Bird se je po desetih letih ponovno udeležil dirke dolge 508 milj ali 803km in ponovno zmagal s časom 26h 24min, ki je nov rekord dirke!

Pri vas se dopoldan preveša v popoldan, pri nas pa smo sredi noči, kmalu bo tri zjutraj. Marko se počasi in zanesljivo bljiža cilju. Na zadnji postaji v Austinu, je bil v vodstvu s 1h 20min. Naslednja postaja je v Falonu, nato pa še zadnjih 100 milj ali 160km, z zadnjim večjim vzponom Geiger.
Po obratu smo nasproti srečevali tekmovalce, sedaj smo že nekaj ur ponovno sami, niti prometa ni. No, zato se pa imenuje najsamotnejša cesta v Ameriki.

Marko je uspešno začel dirko The Silver State 508.

Prva polovica dirke je za nami. Obrat v Eureki po 409km je Marko naredil tik pred nočjo, kot edini tekmovalec, ostale je ujela noč že na poti tja.

After this year’s silver era (World Champs & Torotur) it is fitting to have The Silver State 508 as the last race of the season. 508 miles through deserts of Nevada in the race that Marko has won 10 years ago, under a different name (Furnace Creek 508) and on a different venue (Death Valley in California).

 

FRIENDS ARE LIKE THE STARS, YOU MIGHT NOT ALWAYS SEE THEM, BUT YOU KNOW THEY ARE THERE, SOMEWHERE, FAR AWAY...

Together with Ray Brown we are having a great training camp in Colorado.

Ta vzpon naju je pričakal s dežjem, točo in le 4 stopinjami nad ničlo. Ampak se nisva dala in tudi tega sva "premagala"...

 

Photos speak louder than words, here is how our day with Ray went. We cycled across Independence Pass both ways (12.095 feet at the top). Beautiful!

When we learned that this year's Veterans World Championships will be held in Ljubljana, it was a huge news for us. And plans of assault on a medal were on! After the dates of all ultra races were published, it became clear that my preparation for the road race and time trial will not be optimal. One of the main objectives of my season, race around Switzerland / Tortour (1.009km long race with 14.000m of climbing) will end only two weeks prior to the World Championships.

Here, I have completed my sixth Tortour. Feelings are mixed. My goal was to win and the second place is anything but what I wanted. But I did come across a stronger competitor and Severin Zotterju certainly deserves all congratulations on a well deserved win. Acknowledgements go to my crew Irma, Matic Šmon and Borut Osojnik, you once again performed excellently. Thank you from my heart! Thank you also to all the sponsors who support me and my cycling endevours.

My report from the race:
