Hoogerland defends Franja Marathon victory

By: P.T., STA

Dutch rider Johnny Hoogerland won the 41st Franja Marathon to defend last year’s victory in what is Slovenia’s largest amateur cycling event.

The 39-year-old former Tour de France polka-dot jersey winner finished the 156-kilometre race in 3 hours, 37 minutes and 28 seconds, beating an Italian breakaway group. The marathon takes riders from Ljubljana on a round trip to Cerkno in the west of the country and back. It is named after a WWII Partisan hospital near Cerkno.
