Third race of Slovenian Downhill Cup (hosted by MTB Železniki), which took place at Soriška planina belonged to Luka Berginc (KK Črn Trn).
19 year old got in front of Miha Ivančič (ŠKTD Avče), who got 2nd, while Luka’s riding colleague Vid Kovač took the bronze.
Podium outcome was quite unpredictable due the absence of Jure Žabjek, Miran Vauh and Jan Cimperman, who went to do their best at European Cup in Poland. With just half of a second difference between first and third, whole race turned out even more interesting.
In women category however Špela Horvat (Supersnurf) took an easy win over Italian Lisa Gavo (AR6 Nicolai) and Tjaša Žordani (MTB Čelešnk).
It’s worth mentioning that the whole community at the event paid a tribute to Zarja Černilogar, who tragically passed away last month. Everyone at the race paid her a respect with a moment of silence. Lots of people wore #rideforzarja stickers, while Luka and Špela dedicated their victories to a young talented rider, who left us way too early. Zarja...Ride in peace…
