Rider bio

"As always the winter was long in the Czech Republic and I couldn't wait to get back on the bike again. I quite enjoy skiing but I guess I am a bit unusual for a Czech as I don't like ice hockey. For me Grand Prix racing is the best sport and I want to go all the way to the top."

"This year in the Rookies Cup I really want to take a step forward and be consistently in the top 5. I was close last year, in the 1st qualifying at Sachsenring I was 3rd fastest, but not all the time and I know I have to improve. One of the things I am going to be working on is my corner speed, especially through the fast corners. I really like Jerez and Mugello, like almost all the GP tracks they have fast corners and I know that I can do better if I work hard on that."

"The Rookies Cup is a great experience and I love racing at the same events as the Grand Prix stars, for me Valentino is clearly the top rider but I enjoy watching all of them, in the 125 class I like Bradley Smith and in the 250 Marco Simoncelli."
