Novak M cyclists

Three cyclists in Novak M colours took part in the Little Franja Marathon. Their challenge was to just do their best, ride the 97 km and cca 700 vertical metres and to beat themselves. “To experience a race is something special! When you cycle in a group, you get extra strength and energy! You just give everything you’ve got. Fantastic!” they told us at the finish line with smiling faces and pleasantly tired.
