Croc riders in action at Tahko MTB.
While Croc riders Toni Tähti and Sini Alusniemi had a successful weekend in Austria, other riders in our team enjoyed great results at Tahko MTB in Nilsiä, Finland.
Newly crowned European Ultra Distance Champion Matti Tahkola won the 240km category, and Jukka Vastaranta finished second in the Men Elite 60km distance. Niko Heikkilä won the U20 60km, and as a team (Jukka Vastaranta, Niko Heikkilä and Arto Tikkala) Croc finished second overall.
Also worth mentioning is a great bronze medal for Croc Sports rider Eemil Uitto in the Finnish TT Championship event held in Noormarkku.
Many congrats from everyone here at Croc Bike!!
