The sixth annual Race Around Slovenia (DOS-RAS) has concluded with 2011 Race Across America (RAAM) winner Christoph Strasser finishing the 1,182km course in first position with a time of 1day- 16hr-8-min.  Slovenian Marko Baloh, the 2011 DOS-RAS Champion, was second to cross the finish line nearly 2.5 hrs behind the Austrian.  Swiss racer Simon Ruff rounded out the top three.

This was Strasser’s first DOS-RAS win having raced all 6 years that the event has been held.  He previously finished second three times; twice to Ultracycling Legend  Jure Robic who won the event the first four years it was held, and once to Ultracycling veteran Marko Baloh just last year.
