Michal "Indi" Dokoupil, A New MDA RIDE Advocate
Michal "Indi" Dokoupil is a motorcycle racer who has been following his road racing dreams while he has managed to get from Dvůr Králové nad Labem to regular participation in the Isle of Man TT.
Together with Veronika Hankocyová, his girlfriend and teammate, they are riders of their own small Indi Racing Team. "Indi" is the team leader and rides the Yamaha YZF R6 Supersport spec. 132 hp motorbike. In the Isle of Man Tourist Trophy, he is going the both most watched classes, Superbike and Supersport, competing with the biggest road racing stars. He is also going the Supertwin class in some other races. Recently, "Indi" and Veronika have been involved in making the film called Road Riders for the BBC television on natural circuit racing in Ireland. Make sure to watch it - you can see them in the third episode.
This year, "Indi" plans to attend one circuit race, the Brno Spring Prix (Jarní cena Brna) from April 6th to 8th, six road racing events at Cookstown, Tandragee, Armoy and the Ulster GP (Northern Ireland), the Gustav Havel's 300 Turns (300 Zatáček Gustava Havla) at Hořice, the Golden Burner (Zlatý Kahanec) at Těrlicko and also two Tourist Trophy races at the Isle of Man, thus the Isle of Man TT and the ManX GP.
The slogan of their team which goes already into the tenth season says „If you cannot do great things, do small things in a great way“. The "Indi" himself is certainly a good example as he participates and supports various charity projects. We are pleased he accepted to become also the new MDA RIDE Advocate to help us a little in our efforts to promote the MDA RIDE ideas and activities. For now, we wish a successful season and wheels down to "Indi" and the entire team.
