Podium at European 4X Cup Round 1 for Chain Reaction Cycles / NukeProof Rider Lukas Mechura

The 2010 4X racing season kicked off in Prague, Czech Republic on Saturday 18th April & Sunday 19th April with the first round of the Czech 4X Nationals & EFS Round 1. 4X rider Lukas Mechura attended his home event on his new Nuke Proof custom 4X bike where he took first place in the Czech Nationals the previous day.

The European 4X series included top 4X and BMX riders from throughout Europe including top riders Britain’s Scott Beaumont, German rider Johannes Fischbach & Czech personality Tomas Slavik

During the racing Lukas won his semi final against Johannes Fischbach, Joost Wichman and Petr Muhlhans. Speaking about the race Lukas said “Because it was such a hard semi, the problem was I was already so tired and my legs were on fire. I didn’t have a bad gate in Main took the second place and was straight behind Fischbach. Into the second corner Slavik wanted to pass me from outside but he wasn’t fast enough and almost took me down with him. He crashed and I lost my speed so Tschugg got before me and I didn’t have a chance to try catch him. So I went slowly to the finish and finished 3rd place”

Speaking after the weekend Lukas said, “The bike is awesome! I’ve never rode bike like this so I’m really happy with it. The frame is really made for my body, and a lot of people were excited about the bike at the races.”

“It was a next great racing experience with riders like Tomas Slavik, Johannes Fischbach, Joost Wichman or Scott Beaumont.”
