Petr's biography

Petr started riding at 10 years of age, following in his father’s footsteps. At 15 he joined the Dukla Praha team and began racing on the road. His experience as a young rider also includes some time spent at the UCI World Cycling Center and a year with a French amateur team. Now he is entering in his fourth year with the team, after his best season up-to-date, which saw him take three important victories – Classic Sud Ardèche, Drôme Classic and Brabantse Pijl – and make his Tour de France debut.

“2016 was a very good year, at the end of which I was happy for my results, but also the improvements I have made. The team believed in me and that made me very glad and fueled me with confidence. I’ll start 2017 with a huge motivation, as I want to have another strong year and deliver other nice victories”, said the talented Czech rider.
