Friendship From Footbiking & Facebook

June 29, 2016

Some of our European competitors are already Down Under and acclimatising. One of these is Marek Kadlec from Pilsen in the Czech Republic. He’s been in Australia for nearly a week already and staying with the Hassan family in north Brisbane.

The cute thing is that Marek’s photo has been on the Hassan’s fridge in the kitchen since 2010! At Ivrea in Italy, he shared the podium with Ali Hassan not once but twice and so because Ali’s photo is there, Marek’s is also.

The boys – as they were – became friends on facebook, and before Ali travelled to Pilsen in 2014, Marek made contact and kindly offered to show Ali some local hospitality. So now the roles are reversed.

The young men – as they now are – have checked out the “Brisvegas” nightclub scene, been to a couple of parties and today were tourists in the city. Oh, and they have been kicking, as well as checking out the local BMX bowl this afternoon…
