Three times World Champion, five times on the World Champs podium, two World Cup overall titles, three European gold medals and ten World Cup wins do not seem to be enough for Czech pro racer Michal Prokop: From BMX to Fourcross and now enduro? If the rumours turn out to be correct, the first season of the Enduro World Series will be very exciting! We have already viewed the first spyshots of Michal riding and training for enduro, but we are still waiting for official info on whether Michal will join Curtis Keene in Specialized’s global enduro racing team.
