Meet your mountain biking guide to Slovenia

Meet your mountain biking guide to Slovenia – Dani, he will ensure that your adventure goes to plan and is one to remember

Our new mountain biking adventure in Slovenia, Austria and Italy is a very special journey from the majestic Julian Alps in Slovenia, dipping in to Austria and Italy, and finishing with a flourish on the Adriatic Coast in the ancient Venetian town of Piran.

It also takes a very special guide to really bring out the best, the unusual, the surprising in each region, every single day – and we think we have just the right person in our guide Danijel!

Mountain bike guide in Slovenia

Name: Danijel Kovačič

Bikes: I am big fan of custom bikes and traditional materials – steel is real! The bike, for me, is not only a piece of sports equipment, it is a piece of art, and the welder is an artist. I enjoy assembling my bikes as much as riding them. My favourites at the moment are a Vicious Cycles Thunderwing fat bike and my good old Spot brand 29er. And no, I am definitelly not immune to the n+1 rule…

Favourite trails: My favourite trail is the one I am riding at the moment – because it simply means that I found time to ride my bike. I love the green leaves of the forest and endless singletrails. I treat technical sections which make my hair stand on end and the blood pump in my veins as a challenge to improve my riding skills. I believe that the thrill of downhill is just a reward for all the sweating during the ascent. And last but not least: every perfect trail ends with a cold craft beer.

Most known for: his passion for singlespeed bikes
