Two time Race Across America winner Jure Robic won the first Race Around Slovenia this past weekend. It was 1,100 kilometers. I haven’t found a race report but it was posted to the UltraCycling Topica list that Robic won by a big margin.
Once again Robic is signed up for the Race Across America. Last year he dropped out in Pagosa Springs with pneumonia. Kenny Souza was also having breathing trouble and was stopped about 60 miles earlier in Durango for several hours. That’s when I was feeling great in an area I know well. That’s where I moved into 4th place in the Enduro division. Of course it didn’t matter when I got injured in the fierce wind storm in eastern Colorado and western Kansas. I limped my way to the Mississippi River before dropping out.
