For the first time, this Slovenian off road Boltez challenge was organized in 2004. And from the beginning it looked promising.
In 2006 the event was moved in a quarry in Bistrica.
It’s a great place. Why? Because it’s shaped like an arena. Also, due to heavy rains throughout the year, the terrain changes constantly so each year half of it is completely different.
Ponds become lakes, mild descents become steep climbs… and vice versa.
Lately, the race is attracting racers from Italy and Austria.
In 2014 more than 4000 spectators were there, the race was also shown on Slovenian national TV.
The race will be held on 14th of March this year. And again, the organizers are expected to prepare more surprises for the spectators.
Such as Aleš Rozman on his ATV.
