Michal Prokop – Twelve

News

Twelve months, twelve short documentaries on a long way to success. Trainings. Races. Travelling. Life. This is TWELVE – a new project of the pro mountain biker and BMXer Michal Prokop. Rob Trnka’s camera takes the past month of Michal, just as he has actually spent it. Without any adornments and planning. It doesn’t aim to celebrate the leading actor; it wants to capture by its sincereness. TWELVE doesn’t create dramatic situations, but it catches them if they arise.

The February part will lead us crisscross through the Czech Republic with a short diversion to Slovakia. We will visit two bmx halls in Chlumin and Senkvice. We will remain under roof in Downmall in Liberec and also in one of many circuit trainings in oval track in Prague. With snowscoot we will visit the HEIpark in Tosovice and then we will call on racing tires on ice in Tabor.

Four weeks, six localities, three various bikes, one snowscoot. Marble, stairs, soil, wood and even ice and snow under the wheels and runners. Training, race, duties, and amusement in five minutes! The Czech-Slovak part has also its Czech-Slovak Superstar… The Twelve catches fire as well as rhythms of the authorial composition February by Jan Mocnak. This time the cameraman Rob Trnka had a hard row to hoe to
manage catching all essentials planned by Michal…

“We could have saved some of the themes for future, but if we wanted to make the Twelve just the way we
had planned to do it, we had to adjust to the Michal’s pace. Twelve isn’t any fictitious TV series, so what
happened in February doesn’t belong to March part. The way how Honza Mocnak managed to solve it is only
another proof that he is an absolute pro and it was a joy to work with him,” evaluates the past four weeks
the screenwriter and cameraman Rob Trnka..

Michal Prokop belongs among the few exceptional sportsmen in case of whom one may afford the luxury to consider his placing under winner’s rostrum in a top world competition as something surprising. With his two World Champion rainbow jerseys, two World Cup titles and 10 World Cup wins in his pocket, Michal Prokop belongs to living legends of a gravity mountain biking history. Yet he has found another great challenge in his highly successful carrier – nothing smaller than the BMX premiere at the Summer Olympic Games 2008 in the Chinese Beijing.

But Michal managed to step out of shadow of sports giants even before the flames went up over the Beijing. The life on pedals is his hobby and livelihood as well. The King of the Czech cycling of 2006 acquired all titles on his mountain bike and he even defended them again. Michal brought himself to the attention of
sports public particularly thanks to his dominant position in mountain bike fourcross. Unlike most of his other
competitors MP devotes himself equally to two related, but still different disciplines. Moreover, in 2006, just a few months after his severe injury, Prokop initiated the Czech national team of the track world championship on oval…
