athleteJure Žabjek


Jure always enjoyed riding his bike with his friends. What started as a hobby gradually became a career, and now he is a World Cup rider.

“I love my ‘job’. I’m have a blast travelling around the world and riding my bike. It makes me feel alive when I’m trying to avoid all those trees in the final runs. I also want to finish my degree in electrical engineering. In my free time, I enjoy digging at my local trails and helping my family in our tools shop. I have a lot of things to do all the time, but they make me who I am,” he says.
