Red Bull Goni Pony

2024 is the anniversary year for Red Bull Goni Pony riders. This will be the tenth time we'll be taking our pony bikes to our highest road pass.

Together we will once again drive the devil to the top of Vršič! Last year marked the ninth anniversary of the event, and in 2024 we will be climbing Slovenia’s highest pass for the tenth time.

A #retro celebration of epic proportions is a must! Don’t have a bike? Go through your garage, your dad’s garage and your neighbour’s garage! Don’t have a retro outfit? Go through your mum’s, grandma’s and mother-in-law’s wardrobes!

Every year in June, Kranjska Gora hosts a retro festival. Pony bike enthusiasts will tackle the vršiška serpentines for the ninth time. The current record on the 13.5 km course is 39 minutes and 39 seconds. Will there be a new one this year?

The starting point will be under the Kranj ski slopes in the event area behind the Kompas Hotel.

The initial “warm-up” behind the support vehicle will take place through the centre of Kranjska Gora to the Vršiška road, where all competitors will line up in front of the start line. At 15:00 the car at the head of the column will cross the start line, signaling the start of the competition. The competitor in each category with the best net time will be the winner of the Red Bull Goni Pony competition.

The finish line is set at the top of the Vršič Pass. The Red Bull Goni Pony is not an ordinary cycling competition but a competition with style. A style that was popular during the production of the Rog Pony from the mid-1960s to the mid-1980s. So leave your smartphones and carbon accessories at home and join us for some retro fun.

ROAD CLOSURE

Between 14:30 and 18:00, the road between Kranjska Gora and the Vršič Pass is closed to all vehicles. All fans must go to the top or to the roadside car park before the closure.
