Why such a long pause after the 7

Is is due to my special adventure in the garage where I was trying to repaint my old car and got poisoned.I needed some weeks to recover and the planned Bike Trophy in June 2004 was cancelled. Afterwards I had much work with the new real estate agency.

On June 15 Bike Trophy returns!

Why such a long pause after the 7
th Bike Trophy?

Is is due to my special adventure in the garage where I was trying to repaint my old car and got poisoned.I needed some weeks to recover and the planned Bike Trophy in June 2004 was cancelled. Afterwards I had much work with the new real estate agency.
 

What is new in the 8th Bike Trophy, planned for Posočje on June 15?

The most important change is the duration of the event – this time it is only one day, as in Goriška Brda was not possible to find pricely accomodation in one place (only rooms on different tourist farms with no group discount), which would make our adventure more expensive – 7,000 Euros for 100 participants! In my opinion the one-day Bike Trophy will be more acceptible for majority.The parallel Bike easy will be possible on the same day on different valley trails leading to the same finish line!Start will be later so that the 'Tarzans' get enough courage and hope for winning, supported by their families and less prepared participants.We will ''kill two birds with one stone”, as an old English saying goes.... for the whole family could participate in the event. New is also the internationality of the adventure – as it takes part near the Three Frontiers. Also the image of the starting portal will be new, and it will be performed more professionally. There are some other positive changes, but I am not going to reveal them all now.


What about some details in the 8th Bike Trophy, some information about the rules for those who don't know the adventure?


 

Bike Trophy is different compared to marathons or races – as it joins cycling, orientation and photography, which turns you off everyday experiences, puts you in a role of Tarzan in pure nature, seeking the path and yourself... Looking for orientation sites will sharpen your senses, and you will have to think and collaborate as a team after coming across brief but ambiguous instructions in rhymes!! Two heads are better than one! And when you still hesitate, you can take a SOS aid with instructions out of a sealed envelope, which costs you some points. On each of the

total twenty control sites the whole equipe has to sign and take a picture of themselves before continuing quickly to the next goal which has been shown on the new list of instructions. If there is a fallen trunk in front of you, you will have to climb it over or choose longer way on the road. The choice is yours and on the map in measure 1: 50,000 received at the start, there are no orientation points. The best line must be chosen by yourself. The equipes start at the interval of some minutes and get the instructions for the first control point only with the starter's signal.
The team application is mandatory – the group of 2-4 members – because of safety purposes and easier repairs...


The 8
th Bike Trophy will be on June 15 starting at Bovec, discovering the emerald green Soča and its beauties. There will be a lot of surprise, good company, food, drinks, entertainment with music in the end. For those who don't like travelling too long before the start on Sunday morning, the rooms for moderate prices can be organized to overnight from Saturday to Sunday.
