Bromance Stalker file DN Archive, that yes, as per usual the only way I could do this justice was another… mother… fucking… Birthday… Montage. Colour me predictable! Doesn’t matter if its crushing stage races post an unscheduled tinkle stop, crushing alps KOM’s on multiple continents or personally upsetting cunts by winning XC MTB Races, there is always one common factor: Class
Happy Birthday bro! Looking forward to having 2 beers with you, getting totalled and throwing up on your loafers soon.
