And here's another very overdue update!


25/Jun/2011 Just a couple of days after winning Bosnian National Time Trial Championship
(on my Scott Plasma TT bike), we've had Republic of Srpska National Championship Road Race.

Image

I won in the Senior category and became the most successful rider in the Championship,
since they began, nearly 20 years ago :).

Image


16/Jul/2011 - 87 km race for a National League, held in Sanski Most - I went in a solo break
just a few km's into the race and came to a solo finish, nearly 12 minutes ahead of the main bunch!

Image

It was definitely one of my favourite victories of all time - and it shows :).

Congratulations on the wins! Particularly after the "leg in a cast" picture higher up the page. It's not about the bike after all... :D

17/Jul/2011 - The third and final National Championship Event - Road Race this time,
held in Bihac. A demanding 90 km long mountainous course.

Image

I won in the Elite category, making it three out of three this season!

Image


I also received a special honour as the National Road Race Champion, at the Bosnian
Cycling Federation Ceremony, held on 6/Dec/2011 in Banja Luka.

Though I had given numerous radio and TV interviews due to my achievements,
being nominated for the best athlete of Bosnia & Herzegovina and Republic
of Srpska was something special. Here I am together with other 9 top athletes
of Republikc of Srpska, by the choice of national newspaper Glas Srpske.

Image

21/Dec/2011 - I'm being awarded with a trophy for 7th place by Olympic gold
medalist from 1984 Olympics - Zlatan Arnautovic (volleyball goalkeeper).
It was an honour and a moment of great joy.

Image

The ceremony was aired live on national television, with me pointing my
finger at the trophy, hahah.

At long last - we're in 2012 with the story


On 3/Jan/2012, I was a guest at a ceremony organised by the President of Republic
of Srpska for the best athletes and students. And a while later, on 12/Jun/2012,
a similar ceremony was organised by the Banja Luka City Major as well.

Image Image


Following my achievements in 2011, I was hoping to get sponsored by the city or
at least the cycling club I race for, but all I got was some sort of knee injury
that had prevented me from riding until well into the season :-(.

Image

Still, even without any winter preparations and not being in the racing form,
I managed to score 2nd place at Bosnia & Herzegovina National Road Race
Championship on 24/Jun/2012 in Cazin. And I only lost out by a bike length.
