Patrick L. Lombardi gets the honour to be one of the first ones to send it down the No Man’s Land track in Slovenia. 8 kilometres, 80 sweepers and 5 hairpins are the reason we dubbed this event “endurance freeride”.
It took Patrick exactly 50 slides to reach the finish line where he did 3 more to slow down and finally stop. Pretty wicked if you ask me.
Filming the run on a road of this length was not easy, but we somehow managed to do it. Of course, we had the traffic supervised via the stations. The road was never closed for traffic, but in a case of a car coming up, Patrick was instructed to stop the run and continue once the road was clear again.
That is why at the end of the video you can see the shift in the footage, but I put it together so that it presents the whole track as it is.
Patrick is a team rider at Aera Trucks, DB Longboards, Urethane Burners and Sk8bites. The dude shreds hard and with such passion…Not many riders out there can match his supreme freeride skills. Many thanks for joining the project, Patrick!
Huge thanks to Mirko Paoloni for the follow car filming.
