Recent years have seen Michal further establish his reputation as one of the Czech Republic’s, leading pure road racing exponents.

A highly accomplished competitor in the super twins class, one of his main highlights to date of his pure road racing career, came in the 2014 lightweight TT.

He finished a fantastic tenth, currently his personal best result at TT Races, as he finished in front of the likes of Martin Jessopp, David Johnson, Danny Webb and two time junior Manx Grand Prix winner Michael Sweeney.

Although more known for his exploits on 400 and 650 machinery, Michal is more than capable of recording a stand out result or two this year in the supersport and superbike categories.

Competing for Wilson Craig Racing at the Mid Antrim 150 on the first to the second of April, marks a great opportunity for the leading 400 mounted rider in the 250/400/450 race at last years Ulster Grand Prix.
