future plans

Season 2013 is my sixth in ultracycling. Me and my team are starting a new chapter and starting a new project – RAAM 2017. In the following three years we are planning to compete in 6 races in Europe, among which are races we already know (Glocknerman, Race Around Slovenia, Race Around Austria) and two we don`t (Tourtour – Race Around Switzerland, Race Around Ireland). In the fourth year there will be no big races but we want to go on a “research” trip along the RAAM route, and to take part in a 400 mile race Southern California Cycling Challenge which became a part of RAAM Cycling Challenge. In 2017 we want to compete in RAAM`s solo division in the 60+ category. This whole project will depend mainly on my health, family, work and the interest of our sponsors.

Jakub cejpek's film about raam "the art of suffering" is online

The film depicts Jira`s five years of preparations and training for the toughest ultrarace in the world and his attempt to finish the Race Across America. Jakub`s film is mainly a true documentary about Jira`s journey to fulfil his dream, and a team of enthusiasts and volunteers who helped him on the way. It`s a very personal testimony about their failed attempt. Jira had to give up in the Rockies because of health problems that prevented him from finishing the race. That sometimes happens in ultrarider`s life. The English subtitles will be added soon. You can watch the film in full HD here. We believe you will find it very interesting. Enjoy the story.

raam - conngratulation my colleagues

First of all I would like to congratulate my Czech colleague Svatopluk Božák. Sváťa and his team were amazing. His first RAAM was successful and his result was great – 6th place in category SOLO MALE! Than I would like congratulate Christoph Strasser and especially Tamas Jarvas, who rode his bike from West Coast to East Cost supported only by a small team! I would like congratulate all racers in my category 50+, mainly Team Ultra Cycling Viking! We were meeting many times when I was on the route. Finally I would like to say: Well done Hans Georg Haus!!! You are my challenge for next steps in RAAM. Good lucky and be well.

raam - I finished my race at Pagosa Springs at TS16

Well, I‘m sad, because I had to quit and finished my RAAM in Pagosa Springs. Why? I couldn‘t continue because I have serious inflammation of the right leg and groins. We were forced to drop out immediately and start with antibiotics. Later on this condition had to be resolved surgically. I’m still ill and when I come back to the Czech republic I will be continue treatment, so I can get back on my bike in summer. It was very bad news for my team, my sponsors and all of my fan club. Well, that’s life, health comes first!..
