Libor started as most FMX stars as a little kid on the racetrack. In 1998 he became Czech Champion in the 80ccm class and the title of vice-champion in the 125ccm class in 2001 was his last notable racing result before he decided to give FMX a go.
Libor's speciality is style and airtime (just take a look at his Highest Air results at the Night of the Jumps competitions). His favourite jump is the Jackhammer, a kind of stretched out cliffhanger, and to be even cooler he jumps it to a No Handed Landing. As well as that trick Libor loves to go big on his multiple backflip combinations.
2010 has been a huge year for Libor Podmol, he has won 8 out of the 12 rounds. Libor spent the first quarter of 2010 training in Phoenix Arizona and it has definitely paid off with his first World Championship win.
For 2011, Libor will be heading to the States to train and prepare for next years X Games, Dew Tour and the Monster Energy Extreme Freestylers European Tour.
