Photos and comments of the finalists

InstaForex is carefully monitoring developments in the Slovak league championship, one of the prestige ice hockey tournaments in Europe. The reason of that special interest is participation of HKm Zvolen as our company has been the sponsor of this top ice hockey club for many years.

At present, HKm Zvolen is taking the lead in the tournament, having bright prospects for a victory in the overall standing. Though the Slovak Tipsport Liga is more than half way through, the players have to push ahead. Indeed, it is much easier to win the first game than to secure one’s leadership until the closing referee’s whistle in the final game. Now the team from Zvolen is facing tough challenge. Both the players and their coaches should make sure they have enough energy until the end of the tournament but not rest on their laurels. Our heroes need sober mind and passion to gain at least the same number of scores as their main rivals.

InstaForex and its clients share similar experience that it is too easy to give in to temptation and be confused by early success. The thing of major importance is to be focused, patient, and calm. We know that every success, including financial one, rests on hard work, determination, patience, and ambitions. So, the guys from the Zvolen team and InstaForex traders have a lot in common. They are high-fliers, aiming to develop and achieve more.

Let’s wish good luck to our hockey team Zvolen and all InstaForex traders who share the same drive for success!

Aleš Loprais, Ferran Marco Alcayna, and Petr Pokora on their Tatra Jamal were the fifth in the overall standings in the truck category to cross the finishing line. The rally team met the challenge of the extremely tough 41th edition of the legendary rally raid. Moreover, they successfully competed with powerful and large factory teams.

This edition was arranged within the territory of the only country, Peru. Therefore, this rally marathon was shorter than previous editions in terms of a distance and racing days. Nevertheless, the host plotted a route which required the passionate commitment from the participants. The Dakar Rally kicked off on January 6 in Lima. Remarkably, only one third of the teams who participated in the rally in the truck category returned to the Peruvian capital city which was also the final point.

“For me this was perhaps the most difficult Dakar, leaving aside those where we had an accident and withdrew prematurely. We are a small family team without factory support and yet we have succeeded among the big factory teams,” Aleš Loprais shared his impressions about the participation in the rally.

Importantly, unlike InstaForex Loprais team the rest of the nine teams in the Top Ten ranking were factory-supported crews.

“I would mainly like to express my sincere thanks to the boys, the whole team, our families, fans and sponsors, for without them we would never have managed this. Even though we only enjoyed two problem-free stages, they counted for all and filled us with hopes for the future. To defeat factory teams is a big challenge and I believe we will succeed in this,” concluded Loprais.

The 2019 Dakar Rally is going to kick off in a few weeks. Aleš Loprais, his Spanish navigator Ferran Marco Alcayna, and chief mechanic Petr Pokora will set about a rally raid on January 6 in Lima. The racing team has to go through 10 stages in the truck category.

The team had been fine-tuning their Tatra at the workshop in the town of Frenštát pod Radhoštěm until the departure. Eventually, InstaForex Loprais Team left for Le Havre, France, to arrange some administrative formalities. There, they will embark on board a ship to sail to Peru.

“If we had been given one more week for preparations, we would be still working on the car as there is always something to do. The development of our racing Tatra is our everyday routine and it’s a long-term process. While our fleet is heading to America, I’ve moved to Dubai to practise in the sand dunes until the end of the month as Dakar Rally organisers are promising about 70 per cent of sand.”

Aleš Loprais debuted at the Dakar rally in 2006 as a navigator for his famous uncle. Since then, Aleš has not missed a single rally. On the whole, he has participated in 12 Dakar races, won 9 stages, and finished 5 times in overall TOP 10. In early January, the Tatra truck of InstaForex Loprais Team bearing number 507 will face the racing challenge.
