1. VN Domžale Municipality 14.4.2024

After 2016, when we hosted a road race for the national championship in Domžale, road races are returning in 2024, this time for the categories of young men and women. Together with the race in Kamnik, they will count as a stage race for the Pogi Cup. Yellow and pink shirts for the best, polka dots for the best hill climbers...races that will be a real cycling spectacle.

Kamnik Cup and VN Generali Zame April 13, 2024

A new race on the calendar and a race in the truest sense of the word, a rugged route in the style of "Strade bianche" with a two-kilometer macadam section. Start and finish in Tunjice 

17th VN Komende – Lidl Youth Cup May 19, 2024

 

The Grand Prize of the Municipality of Komenda has been held continuously since 2007, when for the first time we also organized the national championship for boys. The race is regularly scheduled in May, as this month in the municipality of Komenda is also dedicated to the celebration of the municipal holiday.

It is intended for almost all categories of cyclists. Amateurs are tested on races for the Cup of Slovenia, and citizens in the match for municipal championship of Komenda municipality. For boys and girls, younger youths, and younger and older youths a race that counts towards the Cup of Slovenia is taking place.

The race is quite challenging and attractive because of its rugged route with a steep incline and the finish line above it. Because of the latter, in 2007, 2011 and 2017, we were chosen by the Cycling Federation of Slovenia to organize the national championship for boys, girls and juniors.

Since we believe that one of our missions is also the promotion of cycling among young people, with the help of a regular sponsor we organize Lidl Youth Cup. The competition is intended for pre-school and school youth who do not yet practice cycling, but want to try their hand at this sport.

5. Tadej Pogačar Cup and VN Plastika Virant June 23, 2023 

Night Criterium, which is great speed training before the national championship. A race in which all categories of road cycling compete, and the highlight is the member's night race and the performance of Tadej Pogačar and the other best Slovenian "pros". A race that marks the beginning of summer.

12. VN Vodice Municipality September 16, 2023

The Grand Prix of the Municipality of Vodice is one of the last races in the cycling calendar, as it is held at the end of September. It was organized for the first time in 2012, and in 2017 we slightly changed the route and thus made it even more attractive.

Like the Komenda's grand prize, the race in Vodice is a full-day event. The morning time is designated the municipal championship of the Municipality of Vodice and matches for the Cup of Slovenia for amateur competitors. It follows a match for pre-school and school youth, whose purpose is to introduce cycling to young people and offer them the opportunity to compete in it. It takes place in the afternoon race for the Cup of Slovenia for boys and girls, and younger juniors. At that time, you can see young athletes who regularly train and participate in competitions. On such a route as the Grand Prix of the Municipality of Vodice offers, an exciting and tense race certainly promises.

VN Avtomojster Podsmreka October 8, 2023

Since 2001, the competition season for the Cup of Slovenia ends with the VN Avtomojster race. It is intended for male and female cyclists in the ELITE category, up to 23 years old, older youths and amateurs. In the first years, the match took place in the surroundings of Šmarna gora, but since 2006 we have moved it to Podsmreka. The race route is circular. Amateurs cover 3 laps with a total length of 21 km, while the other categories cover 10 laps – 70 km.

The race has a special charm, as it is the last road cycling test in Slovenia for cyclists, and a fan treat for cycling enthusiasts. They can see the best Slovenian cyclists up close and on home soil, including some who are currently riding for big cycling teams abroad.

School national time trial championship, Planica, September 28, 2022

Youthful and energetic championship, time trial, best among schoolchildren. In 2022, for the first time on the tracks of the 2023 Nordic World Championship in Planica. Maybe some cyclist gathers courage and jumps on the ski jump ;)

At the police training ground in Tacno, our association, in cooperation with the Sports Institute of the Republic of Planica, the Municipality of Ljubljana and the Cycling Federation of Slovenia, organizes a national school competition and the championship of Ljubljana schools in the time trial every year. In this competition, male and female cyclists compete for their schools, and the specialty of the competition is also the overall total of the best primary schools, for which the cyclists accumulate points. The routes vary in length depending on age, from 800 to 1,600 meters. Since there are quite a few technical turns on the circuit and also a small hill, a good result requires not only good fitness, but also a feeling for the bike.

ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE POGI YOUTH CUP 2024

Domžale National Championship

In 2016, we organized the national road driving championship in Ihan near Domžale. In addition to the Franja Marathon, which we organize every year, the organization of the national championship in road driving was a big organizational challenge. The selection of the circuit was assigned to our former cycling ace Andrej Hauptman, who with his experience led the circuit along a very attractive route, which was intended for both fast riders and those who are good at riding uphill. Just under 13 km long, the circuit was led from Ihan to Goričica, where the cyclists had to climb almost 2 km long, and before arriving at the Dob-Sveta Trojica road, they had to overcome another kilometer-long macadam section each time. Then followed the descent to the Dobu river, past the junction for the Ljubljana - Maribor highway, past Prelog, back towards Ihan. In the men's member competition, Primož Roglič and Jan Tratnik staged an exceptional duel, who in the end won their first national champion title in the member category, while Polona Batagelj won the title of national champion among the members of the ellipse.
