Drahomír Slovák award #9 and CZE-SVK Cup

Written by Lokomotíva Zvolen at 21:17 25/5-2023

  Finally after a long time, our PR manager had time to actually write something for our fans. So here is the summary of the previous season: fantastic. :) We wanted some jerseys and we got them. And it was the same riders and both jerseys were white. So it is of no surprise that the golden pedal goes again to Slovakia Julo Lietava, congratulations! :)
  Hall of fame:
  S56 Rado Holečko
  S57 Eduard Pavelka
  S58 Eduard Pavelka
  S59 Gusto Drozd
  S60 Gusto Drozd
  S61 Jarolím Samko
  S62 Gusto Drozd
  S63 Julo Lietava
  S64 Julo Lietava
  As expected, we saw the retirement of probably the best hill helper Lokomotíva ever had, Roland Červenák, who won that beautiful VCK Classic trophy just before retirement of Július Božok.
  "Starting" the season on a high note, great technical rider Slovakia Vladimír Ďurovský tried Cesko-Slovensky Pohar without top form, as manager Pierre Mrazique had very little time to actually see where Lokomotíva fell in ranking and what are the possibilities in those lower divisions. But that didn't stop Vladimír, who did what is the strategy of Lokomotíva in general: kept as close to the top in each stage as possible, and in summary that meant he got the most points even though he didn't win a single stage, and got only one result. So congrats to Vladimír!
  Now Lokomotíva is signed up for Norway Tour thanks to the wild card, and Julo Lietava is still eligible for the youth competition... Just saying... ;)
