Two days, two races, two disciplines, and two victories is how Michal Prokop could describe his weekend of podium appearances. The Author factory rider took two Czech National Series in different disciplines this past weekend.
On Saturday Prokop was racing round #3 of Czech BMX Championships in Brno. Technical problems with the gate, a strong rain-shower, event schedule delay could not stop him on his way to success.
Although the delayed finals in Brno caused him to miss Saturday's training session in the first round of the Ruhrbau 4X cup in Prerov, 100km north of Brno, he still made it on time for the pre-event promotional party.
Rain all Saturday night and Sunday morning before the event made for different conditions than the hardpack usually found in BMX. Nonetheless, Prokop qualified second in the four cross event. He then went on to finish first in all the rounds and the final to take his second win of the weekend.
Prokop is slated to race the UCI World Cup in Champéry, Switzerland, on Saturday.
