Personal Experience

Lazar’s biggest passion – mountain biking was born on the hills above the town of Zlatitsa almost 15 years ago in 2007. Together with some of other team members, he is on of the first co-founders of the local mountain bike club ‘’Free dimension’’. Until 2010 Lazar raced mainly in the downhill races. After that he made a pause of 4 years which he spent for his education in the UK.

After his return in Bulgaria in 2014 he actively continued to do mountain biking and except downhill racing he started to do enduro where he had a few top ten finished for the overall. After 2018 Lazar has been doing enduro racing.

Except mountain biking Lazar is a passionate skier with more than 20 years of experience and often he is being fooled by his teammates for leaving the bike for the winter months.

During the last few years he has been training and participating also in some longer more endurance orientated races such as: the ultrathriatlon  ‘’ Lion heart’’, ‘’Vitosha 100’’ and others.

Currently Lazar lives in Sofia, but he is one of the main organizers of the bike park responsible for a lot of the ongoing activities and also the place where he spends the majority of his free time and where he likes to train the most.

Lazar also has an engineering degree and works as a Technical Project Manager.
