TDR, prvi del

Evo ga, dva dni oziroma en dan prave dirke sta za nami, čeprav nas vse odločilno še čaka. Seveda sem zelo zadovoljen tako s prologom kjer sem bil zelo blizu, in je bilo tretje mesto, predvsem z večjim ciljem pred očmi, vredno skoraj kot zmaga. Dobro je bilo tudi včeraj, v prvi etapi, kjer smo pokazali pravo timsko delo in moč ter posledično prevzeli vodstvo in rumeno majico!

Ampak, first things first, kot sem rekel čakajo nas se odločilni dnevi tako, da gremo dan po dan zbrano in optimistično dalje 💪🏼🤘🏼

Tour de Romandie 2018Tour de Romandie 2018 stage-1

So first two days of racing here in Switzerland done, although the decisive stages are still to come. I think we can be very happy with the result of the prologue, I was really close, so the third place is almost like a win to me 🙂 yesterday was also good in the first stage, where we showed great team work and effort, and consequently we took the overall lead and the yellow jersey.

But, first things first, like I said, the important days are still to come, so we take it day by day, focused and optimistic!

Stay tuned, Rogla

Tour de Romandie 18

Se samo meni zdi, ali je teden kadar ni tekmovanj občutno krajši kot pa takrat, ko je dirka?

Jutri se s prologom v mestu Fribourg začne Dirka po Romandiji, letošnja tretja enotedenska world tour dirka, ki jo bom startal. Na lansko izvedbo Dirke po Romandiji imam lepe spomine z zmago na kronometru in tretjim mestom v generalni razvrstitvi. Rane iz Baskije še niso popolnoma zaceljene, zagotovo pričakujemo težko dirko in komplicirane vremenske razmere, značilne za to dirko 😀 Lani je med eno etapo snežilo. Upam da nam bo letos prihranjeno. Sicer pa etape, profile, startno listo in podobno najdete na tej povezavi : steephill.tv

Highlights Tour de Romandie Time trial 2017

Če želite osvežiti spomin na lansko objavo o Dirki po Romandiji.

Srečno, Rogla.


Is it just me or is it true that one week without a race is much shorter than one week of racing?

With a prologue in city of Fribourg we start the Tour de Romandie tomorrow, I have nice memories on last year, where I got a stage win and third place in general classification. The injuries from the crash in the last stage of the Tour of the Basque Country are not completely healed yet, we expect hard race and of course, complicated weather conditions, which are kinda usual for the Tour de Romandie. Last year it was snowing during one stage. I hope maybe this year will be different. 🙂 Anyway you can find stage profiles, start list and similar on this link to steephill.tv

Or if you want to relive post about Tour de Romandie from last year.

the finish line

Uf kakšen teden je za nami. Včerajšnja kraljevska etapa je definitivno upravičila svoje kraljevo ime. Takoj od začetka sem bil vpleten v neizogiben grd padec na desno stran, po menjavi kolesa smo tako morali nadoknaditi minuto, da smo prišli nazaj do pelotona, kar je bilo priznam, težko. Na klance so se začeli pričakovani napadi, katere nam je uspelo uspešno pokriti, razen na zadnji klanec, kjer je dirka dokončno razpadla. Bolj ko se je dirka bližala koncu, bolj mrtvi smo bili, trpel sem za 9.mesto, na splošno pa smo lahko zelo zadovoljni s skupno zmago, tremi drugimi mesti in etapno zmago. Sedaj nekaj dni počitka, upam da si bom hitro opomogel od padca, nato pa trening do dirke po Romandiji konec aprila.

Hvala vsem za lepe želje in čestitke, Rogla.

vuelta Pais Vasco stage 6 Eibar to Arrate

What a week. Yesterday’s Queen Stage really deserved its name. Right after the start I was involved in a bad crash, fell on the right side, changed bike, we had to chase one minute gap to the peloton, which was really hard effort. On the climbs the expected attacks started, we managed to cover them, except on the last climb, where race really cracked.  I really suffered for the ninth place, but in general I think we can be really happy with the overall win and a stage win but also with three second places. J Now a few days of rest, hoping to recover from the crash, and then training till the Tour de Romandie at the end of April. Thank you team and thank you all for the good wishes and congratulations.

Ciao, Rogla
