Franja Academy 2017 has started. We had the first lectures and we opened the My Bike, My Heritage exposition. With ex-professional Andrej Hauptman as special guest who put his old race bike in the exposition.
Tomorrow is a day without lectures but the exposition will be opened from 10.00h to 19.00h.
The official opening of Franja Academy 2017 was done by Gorazd Penko (director of Marathon Franja), Aleks Štakul (president of cycling club Rog), Damjan Kralj (director of sales and marketing BTC City) and last but not least Tone ‘Tof’ Fornezzi, one of the founders of Marathon Franja.
At the lectures we heard about women’s recreational cycling from Marjetka Conradi, the president of cycling club KD Slovenske Specialkarke. Tine Mahkovec of the Unior Tools mountainbike team showed us the situation of women in mountainbike racing and Maja Oven, head of marketing and communications of BTC City told the story of the efforts of her company in cycling. Not only does BTC sponsor Marathon Franja it also sponsors Slovenia’s only women professional cycling team among many other things.
