In 2015 we traveled to Italy to ride one of the biggest bikepacking events in the world; the Tuscany trail. We fell in love with the simplicity of the race, the beautiful places that we traveled through and the camaraderie of the racers. It became clear to us that something similar has to be done back home.

Slovenia has the perfect playground for off road cycling. Gravel roads, forest roads, small local asphalt roads… you name it. We wanted show some of these roads to a broader public, and an unsupported gravel race seemed like the perfect way to do it.

The Dust Lust is a bicycle race through the outskirts of our capital city. The roads are mostly gravel and dirt, some are paved, but all of them remote. The race is physically challenging, goes through beautiful places, and is suitable for variations of road bikes as well as mountain bikes. The racers have to navigate through the race by themselves, they can ride in groups if they want to, but they must be self-reliant, meaning; if anything goes wrong you might as well figure it out on your own. By the end of the day, it’s not the race that matters. What you end up with is the feeling of achievement an unforgettable adventure in the memory book.


In 2017, there will be three Dust Lust races throughout the year. The first one by the end of Winter, the second by the end of Spring and the third, main event will happen in Autumn, on the 28th of October. We’ll keep you posted!


Leta 2015 smo se v Italiji udeležili enega od največjih bikepacking dogodkov na svetu, The Tuscany Trail. Preprostost dogodka, prijetno razpoloženje med tekmovalci in čudoviti kraji, skozi katere smo potovali, so na nas naredili močan vtis. Odločili smo se, da tudi sami pripravimo nekaj podobnega na domačih tleh.

Slovenija ponuja idealno igrišče za kolesarje, ki radi zavijejo z ustaljenih poti. Prepredena je z makadami, poljskimi in gozdnimi potmi ter mirnimi lokalnimi cestami, ki vodijo skozi čudovite pokrajine. To smo želeli deliti z vsem svetom in nastal je Dust Lust.

Dust Lust je niz nepodprtih kolesarskih tekem po stranskih poteh in makadamih Slovenije. Trase so namenjene cestnim in gorskim kolesarjem, so fizično zahtevne, kolesarji pa so za navigacijo odgovorni sami. Kolesarjenje v skupini je dovoljeno, a tekmovalci morajo biti samostojni. To pomeni, da se moraš znajti sam, če gre kar koli narobe. Ob koncu dneva tekma nima več prvotnega pomena, v spominu ostane nepozabno doživetje in občutek zmagoslavja, ne glede na uvrstitev.
