“Together with my manager Zdeněk Löffelmann we tried to extend cooperation with Specialized, because I’m very satisfied and I have excellent material and conditions,” said Jaro at press conference. He had also some other offers and possibilities.
“I’m very happy of that. We believed that we will sign with Specialized again. The new contract is for one year with one year option, so I have a possibility of open hands for Olympic year, “said twentynine year old biker.
This season has been difficult for Jaroslav. “The knee injury came just before the season, then I imagined it a little bit better, but I managed to win the Marathon World Championship and become the first who won all the major titles. But, of course, the priority for me is cross country racing and that was not ideal, I didn’t follow the successes of previous years. Olympics in Rio are coming so I hope that now the luck will be on my side,” said Jaro, who will in the pre-Olympic season focus for XCO World Cup and World Champs again and among others should go back to ABSA Cape Epic stage race together with team-mate Christoph Sauser.
