Training camp Sestriere, Strade Biance and Milan – San Remo

12 August 2020|

After a long time, a short hello, but luckily, it's finally happening again (racing) and there is less time for rest, which is also right, since the season should already be at its peak. After the successful implementation of the national time-trial championship in Pokljuka, the path led me to Siena, where I got to know the roads of the Strade Biance race, which was in my program. From there I travelled directly [...]

National Championship – Road race Cerklje and Time Trial Pokljuka

8 July 2020|

I'm a little late in writing "my" news, you probably know yourselves,  better later than never. I would briefly summarize the last 14 days with the phrase, "Well, it started and it's right that way." I am very pleased with "my" race in Komenda, which was a great success and made a big step forward compared to the one last year. The number of competitors and of course you, my fans accounted for [...]

Racing finally

25 June 2020|

It finally started again. Last weekend was quite exciting. On Friday, "my" race: the 2nd Tadej Pogačar Cup & Plastika Virant Grand Prix. Compared to the the previous year, the race went one step higher. We had a live broadcast on Siol.net, and it was also possible to watch it on television. Some of my teammates from the UAE Team Emirates also came, and almost all Slovenian competitors in the ProTour teams responded [...]

A week dedicated to rest, easier training and the media

28 May 2020|

I spent the penultimate week of May in the Soča river valley. More precisely in Bovec. I chose Bovec because I’ve never actually been there before. And make no mistake, I was, of course, in a hurry, just cycling past. Another reason for this place, however, was the media obligations - recording the cycling content that was locationally connected to the beautiful valley of the river Soča and the legendary ascent to Vršič [...]

My YouTube Channel

30 April 2020|

I am excited to announce I have launched a YouTube channel and have uploaded the first videos! A place where I will put you in the center of world-class racing and the true meaning of my moto »Never quit trying and never give up!«. Subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss any of my future cycling actions and insights. Tadej

Time for memories of my first Grand Tour: La Vuelta, 2nd week »When you see that you can«

4 April 2020|

Given the current situation it is the right time to look back and continue writing down my memories of my first Grand Tour (Memories of my first Grand Tour: La Vuelta, 1st week »From hell to heaven«). After the victory at stage 9, the tenth day was actually the first day of rest. Of course, this doesn’t mean to stay in bed from morning to evening, but during this day I had a [...]

Nothing new, quarantine

28 March 2020|

It's been a good two weeks since my last report, but nothing special has happened in the meantime. After completing a two-week quarantine in Abu Dhabi with my team, I returned to Monaco. On the way home and my first days on the Cote d'Azur, everything was very nice. I was able to train, but things were getting worse here in France. Late last week, we were banned from leaving home, and since [...]

UAE Tour and quarantine

9 March 2020|

Today, 9th March 2020 is the 11th day that I remain locked in "my" hotel room. It's not really mine alone, as I share it with teammate Erik Bystrom. Who would have thought that things would get so complicated? Nobody. Well, let's go step by step, because the purpose and goal of all this was a stage race across the UAE. We arrived in Dubai for our home race three days before its start. [...]

Memories on my first Grand Tour: La Vuelta, week 1

24 January 2020|

We are already in the middle of “winter” preparations for the coming season – and I still owe you a report I promised a while ago, but never found the time to tackle. I don’t think much about the past, unless someone asks me. My thoughts are focused on the future, on trainings and the preparation for the first challenges of the new year. But a promise is a promise and I must write [...]

Azure Coast and Sierra Nevada

15 January 2020|

It's been a while since my last report. After completing my team preparations at Spanish Benidorm, I spent only a few days at home during the Christmas holidays in December. Immediately after them, Urška and I travelled to Cote d'Azur where we continued our training program. The weather was perfect, as most of the days were full of sunshine and the temperatures were favorable for training. The transition to the New Year has [...]
