This Night of the Jumps regular has emerged as a top Step Up competitor with medals in five out of six XG Step Up contests. At X Games Munich 2013 he took gold and became the first Czech athlete since 1995 to win at XG. He was also the first non-American to ever win Step Up. Podmol has a unique style where he seat bounces on the takeoff before whipping the bike over the bar. His gritty attitude and ability to gut out hard landings make him a favorite in the discipline. He is married to Lena Podmol, the mother of his two young children: Joshua (5) and Lilien (3). He is also competing in QuarterPipe, filling in for Wes Agee.
