Slavik wins first round of 4X Pro Tour in Germany!
Tomas Slavik was able to walk away with big win in first round of 4X Pro Tour in Germany after almost a year long break from fourcross because of his health problems. Well, this comeback to fourcross racing was simply amazing! He took a win in qualification, in all his runs and in the final showed up to the crowd really wild over taking move which put him to 1st spot in Winterberg and also to 1st place in overall 4X Pro Tour ranking.
“ 2015 was a big struggle for me and a hard year when my immune system collapsed and I basically had to cancel all fourcross races. Its great to be back racing fourcross, hanging with friends, fight with the fastest guys out there for the points and titles. I really love it, this is what I love most and this is me. So I really enjoyed my time in Winterberg during first round of 4X Pro Tour. I was feeling great on my new carbon frame GHOST bikes Asket and took early lead at qualification. In the race I was winning all my heats and in final had a bad gate and was holding on 2nd spot waiting for Felix Beckeman doing a mistake, but he was riding amazing that day and I had to go for really wild and risky move in one of the last turns, which worked great, crowd was loving it and I took the win in final of 4X Pro Tour in Winterberg! Its great comeback! Already really looking forward to Fort William for next round and I will do my best to keep it same way as in Winterberg! Thank you guys!”
