And here's another very overdue update!


25/Jun/2011 Just a couple of days after winning Bosnian National Time Trial Championship
(on my Scott Plasma TT bike), we've had Republic of Srpska National Championship Road Race.

Image

I won in the Senior category and became the most successful rider in the Championship,
since they began, nearly 20 years ago :).

Image


16/Jul/2011 - 87 km race for a National League, held in Sanski Most - I went in a solo break
just a few km's into the race and came to a solo finish, nearly 12 minutes ahead of the main bunch!

Image

It was definitely one of my favourite victories of all time - and it shows :).

This is inspirational stuff! It also shows that its not about the bike. Its about who rides a bike!

17/Jul/2011 - The third and final National Championship Event - Road Race this time,
held in Bihac. A demanding 90 km long mountainous course.

Image

I won in the Elite category, making it three out of three this season!

Image


I also received a special honour as the National Road Race Champion, at the Bosnian
Cycling Federation Ceremony, held on 6/Dec/2011 in Banja Luka.

Though I had given numerous radio and TV interviews due to my achievements,
being nominated for the best athlete of Bosnia & Herzegovina and Republic
of Srpska was something special. Here I am together with other 9 top athletes
of Republikc of Srpska, by the choice of national newspaper Glas Srpske.

Image

21/Dec/2011 - I'm being awarded with a trophy for 7th place by Olympic gold
medalist from 1984 Olympics - Zlatan Arnautovic (volleyball goalkeeper).
It was an honour and a moment of great joy.

Image

The ceremony was aired live on national television, with me pointing my
finger at the trophy, hahah.

At long last - we're in 2012 with the story


On 3/Jan/2012, I was a guest at a ceremony organised by the President of Republic
of Srpska for the best athletes and students. And a while later, on 12/Jun/2012,
a similar ceremony was organised by the Banja Luka City Major as well.

Image Image


Following my achievements in 2011, I was hoping to get sponsored by the city or
at least the cycling club I race for, but all I got was some sort of knee injury
that had prevented me from riding until well into the season :-(.

Image

Still, even without any winter preparations and not being in the racing form,
I managed to score 2nd place in Elite category at Bosnia & Herzegovina National
Road Race Championship on 24/Jun/2012 in Cazin. And I only lost out by a bike length.

THE FINAL CHAPTER


The year of 2013 started very nicely, with winter preparation camp in Igalo, Montenegro for the best cyclists
of Republic of Srpska. We've had a pleasure to train together with Serbian senior national team, as well as
junior team later on.

ImageImageImage

The weather was wet at times, but there was also some fabulous weather to be enjoyed:

ImageImageImage


A club ride early in March, back at home. Unfortunately one of my last rides on Kovjanic Custom bike:

ImageImage

The reason for that is a new bike build, that you can follow here: http://photos.cybernck.com/cyber1


17th June of 2013 - the very last update - Kovjanic meets its (or should I say - his) new owner.
A club mate Robert is going to enjoy it and cherish it from now on. Photo taken at the same spot
where the bike had originally been built and photographed, 7 years ago.

Image

So, there you go - 11 years since the project had started, I can say that it was an amazing
and emotional journey but it was time to move on to another project :).
