After short new year break our Runda series is back.
We are starting new season with a relatively flat and fast runda course popular among local group of riders in eastern part of Slovenia. It follows mostly flat ground around Dravinja river basin. The roads are wide, nicely tarmaced, beuatufully twisted, on mostly slightly waving ground with many small rises and undulations along the way. The only climb of the day, comes very late, after almost 50km of ride and is not particulary selective. It’s 1.8km long steady drag at 4.5% (Strava segment). Very popular among pro cyclist for car or scooter pacing sessions, since drafting is very noticable here.
Because of the nature of the course, it will be very likely a fast ride in a big group. With just a bit of drafting skill many will be able to hold the speed of big group for at least first 3/4 of the course. Pure sprinters and puncheurs will very much like the course. When they see profile like this, their mood and motivation usually rises up instantly.
