I was on needls all weekend before the race because the
unicycle should arrive from Germany along with my sponsor t-shirts from QU-ax and KH but the post office from Germany and from Croatia are very VERY slow.
So i was living in temptation for one week because i didn`t know if I am going to get my new KH 24". So I ended up in Grasisce (place where is the race)at early Saturday, 500 km from the place where i live still without my unicycle because they had to go trough every possible kind of tax and other stuff.
The program of weekend started on Saturday: On foot inspection of the stage in the morning (2km of pure downhill i did the 1/5 of the stage was too lazy) and in the afternoon official training without timer. I did the first thing and then went to get my unicycle 200 km away on a bus stop ( no direct lines to that village where the race is from another part of country) and when i return it was already dark of course. but i was so thrilled that i set up my KH and did a little ride on the town. I must say that i haven`t ride 24" for 1 year and that one was the most cheapest 24" money can find and i had to drive tomorrow morning DH with it so i decided to go on a ride in the town to get my hands on it I was lucky that i found my Friends in town near that village and guess what ? with him were some photographs from Croatian monthly magazine named KLIK and i ended up making a photo session on local drops stairs and squares. Weeeee i am going to be in a newspapers.
Sunday : I went to take ONe ride down the track before the official training starts, then i climbed up 2 km’s then i did another ride that was disaster because i was tired from climbing but fortunately the official training started so the pickup van was waiting for me at the end of the stage.
the route is nothing like the pictures and the video that was online before the race, the organizators decioded to sice up things a little so they made some very big chagnes in the race. So i after that 2 rides i collapsed and fell asleep.
When the waked me up i told them that i can’t drive qualifications and the race, so we decided that i am going to be a test driver after qualifying round before the whole race and that the are going to make UNI category instead of hard tail that i was planing to go.
So i made the whole 2 KM of pure technical, very rocky downhill in front of 200 +
people and i managed to make it from the beginning till the end with only 10-15 times when i had to jump off the uniczcle due to the lack of brake on 24" with 150mm cranks
after that a guy from Croatian national TV came to me, said that the are making the documentary of Croatian x sports and that the would like to do one whole show on ME wow.
so the interviewed me and left
so folks that is about all, i don’t have computer at home so this is written in very little time due to the lack of money for the receive in net-caffe-
i would also like to thank My sponsors QU-ax and Kris Holm for giving me the UNI for the race
There will be more from me folk, talk to you later when i get my computer
thez also said that if there will be enough riders thez can make UNI race next year with prices and everything
