When he’s not on the seat of a bike, Kristijan drives larger sized vehicles: papa Durasek runs a logistics business that carries milk to a Croatian company.
You could say that Kristijan started driving trucks at the same time he started learning to ride a bike.
In fact, cycling was not the main sport in the Durasek house, and even all of Kristijan’s friends were involved in different sports like volleyball, basketball, water polo or football. Durasek started riding for fun, demonstrating good skills that led him to become a professional rider.
He loves hot temperatures; rain and cold are his kryptonite.
