Other information
CYCLING
He says that cycling is his first passion. He took up Para cycling in 2013 thanks to the director of the sports club Nik-Bike, Zoran Cimbaljevic. "I think that physical activity is very important, no matter if you are a person with an impairment or not. Talking about cycling, I think that it's one of the most beautiful - or even the most beautiful - sport. When you ride a bike you are always free, during each training I can find a new way, experience a new adventure, and in addition when the season starts you can travel a lot. It's the unique charm of this sport." (mladiniksica.me, 11 Mar 2018)
