Plans for 2018?
Michael Beran: This past year so many bad and weird things happened, that makes me take a deep breath, clear my mind and make sure, that I'm doing what is the right thing to do in life for God eyes. Being PRO gave me some benefits, but also took some too... I'm planning to get back to be full Professional (sponsorship wise), but I feel it is not really a good thing for an athlete himself, feel nice in beginning, but it can have destroying finish line. I started to do this sport because I love it, it makes me feel freedom and pure moment at time of the thing, which is priceless. So just ride the best as I can, find a true sponsor, enjoy it and qualify for Olympics!
