    Statement about Istria300

    “When I was younger, Istria was our number one destination for family vacations. Since 2007, I own an apartment in Zambratija. After I finished my active career as a ski jumper, I started road cycling thanks to my friends Bernhard Eisel, Marco Haller and Thomas Rohregger. I got to know Istria on the bike pretty well now and I think it’s one of the most stunning, actually the best cycling area worldwide. Having the chance to ride 300 km on closed roads with a lot of enthusiastic riders is a must for me. I am really looking forward to Istria300 in October 2020.”
