After one year in Canada I spent the summer in the Czech republic. Middle of Europe and beautiful country with old history, nice nature, good people and the best beer. I was working, training and racing together with my brother, also triathlete, Michal Francke. Our "base" camp was at Macha´s lake, beautiful lake situated in pine forest with small hills and lots of send rocks. Ideal place for training. We were running pub at our camp next to the lake and getting ready for the season, which wasn´t the best one for us.
