7) Ideal day consists of?
Wake up stupidly early on top of of an epic road with tunnels and fast sweepers, with a tight crew of good mates. I eat a Jamaica ginger cake and we skate said road in a tight pack until all of our legs feel like jelly. Then we head to the nearest cafe for a big fat coffee and a fry up. The cafe are out of mushrooms, so nobody has any. We spend the rest of the day chilling out on a mellow road drinking beers and feeling good about the morning!

The Borek in his natural habitat… hungover on the floor in the forest on the other side of Europe. At least he has a roll matt…

This little fella, he walks up and rolls down!
