In the 2022 edition, the girls started under the name ZAJO Girls, consisting of Jana Šimunková, Jana Valocsayová, Mária Kováčová, Magdaléna Bartková, Janka Hovanová Molčanyová (our designer), Martina Diviaková, Táňa Vršanská, Anna Ďurcová, Adriana Mlynarovičová, Klára Hatinová, Zuzana Surgáčová and Janka Švihoríková.
These 12 girls were facing a 345-kilometer-long course, with three sections awaiting each of them, with an average length of just under 10 kilometers.
While the previous year the girls had won in a rather sovereign manner, in 2022 it was quite a drama. For most of the race, another excellent women's team, ŠK Detva in motion, was in the lead, but our girls were breathing down their backs the whole time. In the 23rd section, the girls briefly took the lead but lost it again in the next section.
It was a tough fight, which was decided only in the final tens of kilometers. The girls took the lead for the second time in the 31st section and didn't let it go until the finish. They finally reached the finish line with a 15-minute lead, which is a really close difference on such a long course. Once again, these girls were on the top step of the podium.
