RAAM has been my passion since the first time I’ve heard of it. I have studied its history even before my first attempt in 2003, so I do understand how much it can give you and how much it can take. Since the first two DNFs, I have turned it around and had five successful finishes solo (4 times on a podium) and one victory in a 2-person Team. I was a crew-chief for RAAM and have coached and gave advice to many athletes who have competed in and completed RAAM and RAW. I understand what is important to finish a race as huge as RAAM is, and how to prepare for it.
If you dream of RAAM are willing to work hard, contact me and we will make it happen:

Ride with Marko
Every cyclist who wishes to, has the opportunity to ride with Marko. Doing a training camp together gives us a lot of time to talk, make plans and of course have some unforgetable riding together. We can either do it at your place, in Slovenia or some exotic place you would like to train at (the places we've tried before include Gran Canaries, Colorado climbs, Dubai, Oman, France, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland).
Marko's fee is a 2000€/week or 1000€/3day weekend (whoever has been a Baloh Coaching client for at least 6 months gets a discount of 50%) plus expenses (travel, accomodation, food). Arrangements have to be made a few months beforehand, as Marko is pretty occupied all through the year.
Crewing/planning for ultra-races
When Marko is not racing he is available to consult you with making a race plan/logistics, help you via phone/email during the race and even crew for you when you make an arrangement with him early enough.

Have a great race!
