This weekend the best mountain bike riders from Slovenia and the neighbouring countries will meet in Cerkno, Slovenia, for the second event of this year's Unior Downhill Cup.
I am the manufacturer of the BIB numbers for these events. Bikers have two numbers on them. One is laminated and attached to the steering of the bike while the other is pinned to rider's back.

It is quite a lot of manual work and several steps to the finished product.

Nevertheless, I am happy to do some manual work and produce a physical product as opposed to my main job of pushing keyboard buttons and virtually moving bits and bytes around.

Are you near Slovenia and Cerkno? Then come and join the party. It will be lots of speedy downhill riding with jumps and acrobatics. These riders are all daredevils with a lot of real mountain bike riding skills and experience.
Among other things, I also produce BIB numbers for the recreational events. I am putting these on display here on Scorum as they are produced. At the same time, I promote the events they are printed for.
