And perhaps Mark Daugherty and Paddy Kaye, childhood friends and now business partners in Joyride Bike Parks Incorporated, exhibited nascent talents at a young age, Mark swinging a hammer, building forts and working with Lego, Paddy building jumps and choreographing scale model earthworks for action figure stuntmen.
Maybe that’s how it went down…
