Michal is also entered in all 1000cc races, the RST Superbike, Royal London 360 Quantum Superstock and the blue riband Pokerstars Senior TT.
It’s not known at present as to what his stead will be, in either stock or Superbike trim for the premier big bike races around the historic and magical Manx roads.
Hugely popular, Michal has consistently over the last ten years been regarded amongst the Czech Republic’s leading pure road racers.
Alongside TT 2017, his roads schedule for the year also looks set to include returns to Horice, for both the 300 Curves of Gustav Havel and Czech Tourist Trophy IRRC meetings.
