The profile of the huge French mountain pass – Col du Galibier. Yes, it says 2642 altitude meters. The first Slovenian and my first victory in the Tour de France (2017). What an incredible day it was!

In the 2017 UCI Road Cycling World Championship in Bergen, Norway, I won the silver medal in Men Elite Time Trial. It was the first WC medal in time trial for Slovenia. 

The finish of the Queen stage in the Pyrinees in the Tour de France in 2018. My name is written next to number one in the results of that day. 

My team! We have been winning together for 5 years now. 

It was in the Giro d’Italia where I won for the first time in a race of the highest rank.

Giro dell’Emilia is one of those finishing on the top of San Luca above Bologna. For winning this Italian classic you are awarded 12kg of Mortadella. Oh yes!

L and L are my biggest motivation and support.

When it gets so hard that even fighting against yourself becomes meaningless, that is the moment when you need to fight for something more. In those moments I fight like a lion for my Lev (translates to lion).

BL, my first Monument. Something, I really wanted to add to my achievements. On the podium I received an award in the shape of a chainring. 

National Championships hold a special place in cycling. The winner gets the right to wear the “national champion jersey” adorned with the country’s national emblems. I am proud to be wearing the national champion jersey of 2020/2021 embellished by Slovenian highest mountain, Triglav.

The trident of Poseidon, trophy for the winner of the stage race Tirreno-Adriatico. The owner symbolically becomes the “king of the two seas”. I was chasing it for 4 years before finally bringing it home – not saying the fourth time was any less intense – I won by less than a second.

As you may know, I was a ski jumper for 15 years before I started cycling. In winter sports there are special medals awarded on World Championships – they have the shape of a snowflake. In 2007 I got one as well, when we became Junior World Champions in the team event.
