Last Sunday it was the turn of third edition of Enduro Krokar (Raven Enduro) in Dobrna, the second round of SloEnduro 4Fun series in 2017.

60 riders from three countries raced on two different tracks, twice each. The first track dried well after rain while the second one ramained wet and slippery.

The race returned to original downtown venue with start from Triglav hotel and finish at Pod kostanji restaurant. The organizers also put up a symbolic finish in Terme Dobrna park which turns 200 years old this year.

First four from the start

The fastest

The 2015 and 2016 4Fun series champion Peter Mlinar (Blackthorn) who alleggedly missed round one as well as first two rounds of SloEnduro for skiing returned to bike racing and didn’t let anyone surprise him. He set the fastest time in all four stages and won his third Raven in a row with a gap of more than 20 seconds.

Nace Krivonog (Black Hole Enduro Team), another rider from Koroška region, finished second, and Urban Ferenčak, national MTB team manager and Enduro Krokar organizer, finished third.

Yana Dobnig

Grega Nagode (, 5th overall, won in master 2 category and Marko Fink (ŠKD Pank kura) in 7th overall won in master 1. Austrian Philipp Freudenberg (Radlager Mountainbikeverein) in 10th overall was the fastest junior and Yana Dobnig (RLM Mondraker Racing Team), also Austrian, the fastest woman.

Riders received custom chocolate lollipops instead of classic medals - great if you have lots of medals at home already but if it’s someone’s first they will just need to hold back not to eat it.


Third round of 4Fun series will be the Merjasec Enduro (Wildboar Enduro) on June 18th on the new trails in Ruše, Slovenia.
