LET’S TRY CYCLING
From very early age, Jan was extremely sportsy – trying out different sports and approaching them with zealous dedication and commitment. Cycling was not his first sport love – that role belongs to basketball which he trained for several years. To this day – when asked which is his greatest sports hero, Jan would say Michael Jordan. It was not until 2007, when a local pro cyclist (and Jan’s neighbour in his hometown Idrija) at that time invited Jan to go for a ride. To everyone’s surprise, Jan was able to keep up with much more experienced riders and this casual “coffee ride” planted the seed for what turned out to be a complete career change. Maybe this cycling thing could be more than a hobby?
