Kazakhstan is one of the 10 largest countries in the world, and within that list Kazakhstan will probably be the state you know least about – for a few reasons. Firstly, Central Asia is a very distant region from most of us, and is situated far from the current news agenda. Also, it is a young country which only became independent in 1991 after the collapse of the USSR. Underdeveloped tourism is another factor: Kazakhstan has started to open up recently, but it is still more difficult to travel around than many countries.
Gabriel Summers, Rob Wootton, Nestor Judkins and Vladik Scholz recently undertook the biggest skate trip the country has ever hosted, and the whole story was captured by none other than road warrior Patrik Wallner.
