I am 23 years old. I am from Czech Republic, I was born in a small city and I started riding when i was 11 years old. Because my parents have never ridden, and there was no professional help in our region, when I turned 16, I decided to move on the other side of the Country; to the stable of Jirí Hruška, Czech Nations Cup rider. This had been possible only because of the huge support from my family. I finished high school and I moved to Germany for a full year immediately after, where I worked for Johannes Ehning and Dirk Ahlmann. I returned home, with a briefcase of experience, I gained a 2nd place at the Czech Senior National Championships, I graduated at College and now I am fully focused on my riding to become a high level professional. I am proud to be the first Czech athlete who has ever been selected for the Young Riders Academy. I will work hard to show everyone that having in the Team 19 was indeed the right choice.
