Two days of Tržič Trail Days under Karawanken mountain range brought together more than 90 mountain bikers from Slovenia, Austria and Hungary and local children had a lot of fun on pumptrack and MTB skills polygon.
The weather forecast was changing all week long and then on Saturday we were blessed with a perfect sunny day, just evening concert with KiNG FOO band was spiced with a rain drops - but we didn't hear it due to an amazing voice of a singer Aleksandra.
Saturday morning started with guided tours for enduro riders (Tržič classic tour and Dragon's technical tour) and cross-country riders to Tržič meadows. The biggest group was for Tržič enduro classic tour which is suitable for beginners and experienced riders who are looking for more speed. Adrenaline junkies enjoyed two stages of Dragon's technical tour.
Sunday started with foggy weather due to night rain, but late in the morning the sun started to show up. The trails were more slippery than a day before. We decided to join together both enduro groups and a special guided tour took place Trans Karawanken (stage Jezersko-Tržič) which has been open just a week before.
Without pink glasses we can say that Tržič has a big potential to become a top mountain biking destination in Slovenia. Even more, they have dedicated and passionate local community that made this event even more special. Of course there are challenges, but with a great team and passion the "flow" to the top will be easier!
