Petr Vakoc aka. Vaki
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 third year with the team, after his best season up-to-date, which saw him take two important victories: the Czech Cycling Tour and stage 2 of the Tour of Britain.
“2015 was a very good year, at the end of which I was happy for my results, but also the improvements I made. The team believed in me and that made me very glad. I’ll start 2016 with a huge motivation, as I want to have another strong year and show that I’m capable of leading the team in some races”, said the Czech national champion.
