Dirka po Sloveniji

Danes pa se začne! Po treh letih ponovno startam Dirko po Sloveniji. Podrobnosti o etapah in dogajanju najdete na http://www.tourofslovenia.si

Pred šestimi leti, ko sem začel s kolesarstvom, si nebi mogel misliti, da bom delil domače ceste z legendami svetovnega kolesarstva in ponosno razlagal, da sem tu doma! Pričakujem vas ob cesti, kjer se bo zagotovo bil velik boj za zeleno!💪😁😎

Update

Pa je spet kak mesec naokoli, vmes pa se je zgodilo že ogromno. Med drugim smo zmagali tudi dirko po Romandiji, sicer brez etapne zmage, ampak smo lahko zadovoljni z dvema drugima mestoma in tretjim, ter seveda prvim na koncu.
Iz Romandije sem odšel direktno na ogled trase v Innsbruck, kjer bo septembra svetovno prvenstvo, seveda brez postanka na skakalnici ni šlo. Iz Innsbrucka sem odpotoval na ogled etape dirke po Franciji, ki se bo končala na velodromu v Roubaixu.
Nadaljevali smo z ogledi gorskih etap v Pirenejih, sedaj pa je minil že en teden odkar smo na višinskih pripravah na Sierri Nevadi nad Granado v Španiji. Če primerjam z lanskim letom, je letos vreme mnogo slabše, vmes je že snežilo, veliko hladneje je, kar pomeni da moramo velikokrat v dolino na trening. Tukaj ostajam še 2 tedna, kar pomeni še velikokrat nazaj do vrha proti Pico Veleti, predno se vrnem v Slovenijo za nastop na domači dirki. Se vidimo ob progi? 🙂

It was cold in the Pyrenees

and Sierra Nevada.

Well, again a month or so has gone by, a lot has happened. We won the Tour de Romandie, didn’t manage to get a stage victory, but we were pretty happy with two second places and third, and of course the first in the end.
From Romandie I went directly to see the world championship parcours to Innsbruck, which will be held in September, of course with a quick stop on the ski jumping hill. From Innsbruck we went to check the Roubaix stage, and then we continued to the mountains – the Pyrenees.

It has been a week now since we are here on altitude training camp in Sierra Nevada in Spain. If I compare it to last year, the weather is not so good this time, it has already snowed, it is much colder, which means that we often have to go to the valley for training. We are staying here for 2 more weeks, which means many more times climbing towards Pico Veleta, before I return to Slovenia for a home race. See you on the track? 🙂

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 💪🏼🤘🏼

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
