Sitting (second from left) with locals and Hassan — a Pakistani racer and training partner — up in the hills near Naran. We are taking a break during a ride before the three day Tour of the Karakorums. 2006.
Marcin riding an alternate route parallel to the Friendship Highway in Tibet. I met him, Czarek, and Agata, all from Poland, in Shigatze. Marcin and I were both pulling first generation Polish-made Extrawheel trailers with our full suspension bicycles. I teased him for his enormous cargo, but we certainly enjoyed using his expansive tent to hang out in, play cards, and trade stories. The four of us rode together for a couple of weeks. 2007.
