Czech Lions photo Ekaterina GolitsynaTomáš Křivský (1976) and Martin Lafek (1983) from The Czech Republic are back for round two as a team. Last year they finished as #8. This year they seem to have developed some bad leisurely habits. We guess they're in denial.

Special skills
2016: "Non-comfort is our home and pain is our food". 
2017: "We need a lot of sleep in the mornings. We need warm food every second hour. We need a hot shower every evening".

"To see the land again without fog and meet all the VAKE people".
