In Memoriam: Tomaž Grm 1968-2024

Z globoko žalostjo sporočamo, da smo za vedno izgubili cenjenega člana upravnega odbora KD Rog Tomaža Grma

Spoštovani člani in prijatelji KD Rog,

Z globoko žalostjo vas obveščamo, da je naš dolgoletni član upravnega odbora Tomaž Grm po dolgi in pogumni bitki z rakom žal preminil. Bil je izjemen človek, večen optimist, velik ljubitelj kolesarstva in nepogrešljiv del našega društva. Njegova strast do kolesarjenja in nesebična predanost društvu sta nas vedno znova navdihovali. S svojim delom in entuziazmom je pustil neizbrisen pečat, ki bo ostal z nami za vedno. Zadnjo Franjo je prevozil pred dvema letoma. Njegova zapuščina živi naprej v naših spominih in v vsakem kolesarskem kilometru, ki ga bomo opravili v njegovo čast. V teh težkih trenutkih izrekamo globoko sožalje njegovi družini in vsem bližnjim. Slovo od Tomaža bo potekalo v ožjem družinskem in prijateljskem krogu.

Naj počiva v miru.

The Ljubljana Gusto Santic team took part in a race around Slovenia

The Race around Slovenia 2024, also known as the Tour of Slovenia, once again served up tense stages and high-quality international participation. The fifth stage, which ran from Šentjerne to Novi Mesto, was particularly interesting as the riders battled it out in a fast finish that ultimately gave the win to Ben Healy from the EF Education - EasyPost team.

Team Ljubljana Gusto Santic, representing Slovenian colors, had mixed success in this stage. The best result was achieved by Dylan Hopkins, who finished the stage in 56th place, 5 minutes and 34 seconds behind the winner. Natan Gregorčič finished with a time of 12 minutes and 28 seconds behind the leaders, while Andy Sampson and Viktor Potočki had the same gap of 12 minutes and 36 seconds. Mihael Štajnar and Li Ting Wei finished the stage slightly behind their teammates.

In the overall standings (GC), Mihael Štajnar is the best ranked member of the Ljubljana Gusto Santic team in 87th place, 42 minutes and 56 seconds behind the leader. Dylan Hopkins and Natan Gregorčič also struggled, but their backlogs indicate the problems they faced during the race.

The Tour of Slovenia is known for its difficulty and speed, but also for the fact that it gives smaller teams the opportunity to prove themselves on the international stage. Despite the fact that the results may not be what the team would like, every experience is valuable, especially in such a prestigious race as the race around Slovenia.
