An excellent season behind me and RAAM again in 2013

A season without RAAM
Even without RAAM, I had a very challenging season – with a 100 mile World Record on the Road and the 24h TT World Championships as the major goals. I can say with confidence that my season was successful with only one second place and all the rest were victories.
 

RACE AROUND SLOVENIA
My winter training was more relaxed last winter as I devoted my time to writing a book about my ultra-cycling years, plus there was no pressure on me without RAAM in the plans. Even so, I prepared really well for the first race of the season Race around Slovenia. It was one of the most enjoyable races of my career, but I came up against a perfectly prepared Cristoph Strasser, so I could “only” manage second place.


WORLD RECORD FOR A 100 MILE TT
A month after RAS it was time for my record attempt. This year it was “only” a 100 mile effort and the training sessions had to be a beat shorter but a lot faster! I managed to put in a great effort and bettered the old record by more than 4 minutes, my new record is set at 3h 48min 41sec with the average speed of 42,22km/h! Here is a short film about my ride:

RACE ACROSS OREGON
It took me a long time to find time to come to RAO as the race organiser has invited me there 8 years ago. A long trip and trouble with the baggage didn’t stop me in giving it my best performance and win with a new record, breaking the old course record by more than 4 hours!

TORTOUR FOR CHARITY
Riding Tortour in a 6-person Laureus Charity Team was one of the best racing experiences of my career. More about it:

NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN
To support my cycling friend Dex Tooke, who took upon himself to organise a race in West Texas and to start my RAAM preparation, I decided to race the inaugural NCOM. I won the 384 mile long race with a time 20h 59min.

WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS 24H TT
After NCOM and than two weeks of hard training in Texas, it was time for the final race of the season - the 24h TT World Championships in Coachella Valley (CA). WIth a large group of competitors mostly from USA and GB I had to be at my best to achieve my goal of winning the first World Champion Title in my career. I did it and here is my report:
- 24h TT World Championships report

One of the moments from 2012 that I will cherish the most is writing an autobiography about my 6 RAAMs, for now in Slovenian language, maybe some day also in English (if I can get it financed)?

EPILOGUE:
As I've have shown in all of this year's races, I am still a force to be reckoned with in ultra- cycling competition and I feel I have a few more of good racing years in my legs. In 2013 I will be back at RAAM on the tenth anniversary of my first RAAM attempt in 2003 and I am going to put all my forces into trying to win the hardest race in the World. It will be my sixth solo attempt at RAAM and until now I had a second and a two third places in solo competitions (2006, 2009 & 2011), to go with my only victory as member of a 2-person team in RAAM 2008.

You can help me reach my goal by helping me overcome a huge financial burden of RAAM expenses. By making a donation of any amount, you will help my cause more then you know and every penny (Euro, $) does count!
