The 1.000km Time Trial World record attempt, July 24th-25th, 2020

The season 2020 is unique and bike races/events are not happening. As I am trying to get my loyal sponsors some attention and give them something to write about, I decided to go for the World Ultra-Cycling Association record for the fastest 1.000km. On the way there of course there will be other, shorter records to be broken, on the top of my list is the 24h WR on the road, held by Christoph Strasser (896,2km) and my own 12h WR from 2007 (458,7km).

The venue is Dobrovnik, the host town for our Slo24Ultra race, which unfortunately had to be cancelled this year. The loop will be longer than our race loop, 20km in all, one stretch of a really bad surface there, couldn’t be helped, it will be OK. This is an open road course, just like drivers I have to obey all road laws and its not like the roads are getting closed for this, so that plays a factor. I am feeling very confident about breaking lots of 50+ records, for the overall it will be touch and go. Could go either way, we will know on Saturday evening…

I guess there are not many if any other sporting events, games or races happening next weekend. Tune in and watch my behind online, as there will be a camera and a LiveStream action with the help of VZIVO.SI. We will post the links on a day of the race, for sure there will be embeded screen at my website markobaloh.com. Due to Covid-19 situation, we prefer the online viewers to the in flash ones this time around. Keep the comments coming, they will keep my energy levels up! Thank you to Irma and all of my friends taking care of me and making the event running smoothly. A huge thanks to our two WUCA officials, Mira Gasparic and Anna Mei. Fingers crossed for only a mild wind (if any) and a positive result.

Thank you to all of my sponsors for helping me making this happen:

HERVIS, BTC CITY, INFINITY BIKE SEAT, SPIEGEL BIKES, RED BULL, OCEAN ORCHIDS, MME, BANEM SPORT, I hope I can make you proud!
