I’ve been thinking about doing the Sebring 12/24h Cycling Race for a very long time. All of my friends (Hoppo, Valerio, Dex) had nothing but praise for the race. Unfortunately the time or the money issues never allowed me to do it. This year I was determined to train hard through the winter having quite a few training camps with my coaching client Scott, so I was sure I was going to be well prepared to go for the 24h race record (500miles, by the way). And on December 10th, 2013 in the early morning I finally bought the plane ticket to Florida. A few hours later I was lying in the hospital with dislocated and broken shoulder and some torn ligaments, wandering what the hell happened on that slippery road.

V petek, 31. januarja, se je v Športnem centru Millenium BTC v Ljubljani odvijalo že 9. Dobrodelno 24-urno kolesarjenje z Markom Balohom, enim najboljših ultra-kolesarjev na svetu. Marku se je pridružilo okoli 100 kolesarjev, ki so skupaj zbirali sredstva za nakup svetlobnih teles Wheel Bee. Svetlobne lučke bodo podarili otrokom na otroškem kolesarskem Maratonu Franja BTC City.


Marko Baloh, eden najboljših ultra-kolesarjev na svetu, nadaljuje svojo tradicijo in v sodelovanju s Športnim centrom Millenium organizira že 9. dobrodelno kolesarjenje. Rekreativni in profesionalni kolesarji se bodo tako z Balohom na čelu podali na 24-urno dobrodelno kolesarjenje pod sloganom »Kolesarjenje je zdravo«. 9. dobrodelno kolesarjenje se bo pričelo v petek, 31. januarja 2014 ob 19. uri in se končalo 24 ur kasneje, v soboto, 1. februarja 2014 ob 19. uri v Športnem centru Millenium. 


Odločil sem se slediti svojim sanjam in se tudi profesionalno posvetiti temu, kar delam z veseljem, to je pomagam kolesarjem doseči svoje cilje. Če želite trenirati po programu enega izmed najizkušenejših in najboljših ultra-kolesarjev na svetu, si poglejte spodnjo povezavo in me kontaktirajte, da se pogovorimo o podrobnostih.



I was always lucky with picking the crew and never ever has anybody in the crew let me down. But the way this year's crew worked and how good they (we) clicked together no matter the language barrier, leaves no doubt that this was a real DREAM TEAM! 

And if (when?) I decide to go the race of the races one more time, I wish from all my heart to have the same dream team cover my back again.

Three years ago I finished one of my biggest projects and certainly the one I cherish the most - 900PLUS, in which the goal was to ride more than 900km in 24 hours. Here is my recap from that day (October 8th-9th, 2010):

It is done! It was a huge relief. We were so confident about surpassing the magic barrier of 900km in 24 hours, that some were beginning to take it for granted. I myself was more than aware of the difficulty of task at hand, even if everything goes smoothly on a day. Add one or two unplanned complications in 24h and everything can go sour.



Adidas oz. podjetje AMM d.o.o. so že precej let moji sponzorji za športna očala in njihovi modeli mi odlično ustrezajo za vse pogoje kolesarjenja, tako sonce, meglo, dež in celo temo. Do sedaj sem moral na RAAM vedno vzeti najmanj tri očala, da ni bilo potrebno menjavati stekel. Torej ena za sonce, druga za dež in tretja za temo.

How to resolve a problem of being so slow after a few days of minimal sleep – between 1 and 1.5h a day? I have already tested the mentioned pattern in my previous RAAMs and discovered that with only an hour of sleep daily I become »chronicly slow« and with that I am no match to the competition.


After long years of trying out different radio stations or walkie-talkies, which were all useless at speed higher than 30km/h, we finally found the solution for communication between cyclist and his crew. Cardo BK-1 Duo is the ideal solution for the communication needs of ultra-cyclist and his crew.

All of you who follow my blog already know what went wrong during (and before) this year's RAAM – the RV problems and my illness before the race, which was in large part responsible for the outcome of my race. In fact I can be thankful that I even managed to finish the race in such circumstances. In my next blogs I will share with you many of the positives that (besides my stuborness) helped me achieve a more than respectable 5th place.


At Tortour 2013 theLaureus Charity 2 Team achieved 4th place among the 24 6-person teams and proved the impossible is possible.
