“To become the spokesman for such a strong company like UFO Plast, especially when the two upcoming years are so important for my career, makes me proud and content. I am a bit of a fanatic when choosing my race wear comes, so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw how good the UFO 2007 product line is! All the MX-17 pants and gloves look sweet as well as the Empire race shorts. They already delivered prototype knee and shin protectors, which meet my needs very well, so that’s why I’m looking forward to all the future projects we will work on together. I’ll do my best, so that my rivals will only see UFO on my back, while my fans will have the privilege of seeing the front side on the podium!” quipped current World Champion and World Cup Winner Michal Prokop. “And last but not the least, I would like to thank and wish all the best to the guys at Troy Lee Designs for all the support they gave me during last three seasons,” he added.
