Following time out to focus on BMX in preparation for the Beijing Olympics, Michal Prokop is returning to 4X in 2009.

Prokop is a formidable force in world 4X, with two World Championships, two World Cup overall titles and 10 World Cup wins.

Riding an Author Prokop 4X signature frame, the Czech sensation is looking to continue his success of previous years, relishing the chance to compete against the new breed of 4X racers, and the growing ranks of BMX converts.

He had this to say:

“After all that Olympic BMX rush, I am looking forward to be back on a big bike. There are some new but already hell fast kids in the World Cup and it seems that also some more BMXers want to try what is fourcross about. Anyhow, I will play my game and then we’ll see if it’s enough for rainbow jersey from Canberra or another World Cup trophy. You know me, I am living for winning… I will fight for A gang!”
