Downhill in Veli Losinj – Season start for Boris Tetzlaff
Blue Tomato team rider Boris Tetzlaff had his first downhill biking event of the season two weeks ago in Croatia and came home totally stoked about this event! Here is what he had to say about his season start:
“I’m so ready for the season! My Team and my Sponsors are absolutely great this year and I couldn’t be happier! This event in Croatia is always something really special. Even though it was my fourth time riding there, the atmosphere in Mali Losinj gets me every time!
The 1.7 km course heads straight into the unusual finish line in the heart of the city and has an epic view of the ocean. The Croatian fans on the side are pushing me every year to my limit and at the finish it almost feels like they carry me the last meters of the run.

It was also the first run with my new Bike and I have to say, it fits quite well! The Handling is super easy and even when it’s an extremely rocky course I always have the best feeling.

At the end, I landed on the 7th rank and I’m totally happy about the outcome of my first race! I hope my season continues as good as it started. Next month I will be in Kranjska Gora in Slovakia for the IXS-Cup from 6th to the 8th of May! Wish me luck!
Thanks for the support!
See you soon, Boris!“
We definitely will keep our fingers crossed for you! Go Boris!
