Kolby Parks, is the 2018 World Street Luge Champion hailing from Picton....somewhere in Canada. He first fell in love with the sport at age 12 watching the X Games on television. Following the show he immediately went outside to build his first luge out of an old skateboard he received for Christmas. Growing up on a farm, Parks had materials he needed to build a homemade plywood track he and his friends could ride on. At age 21, Parks bought a Rogers Bros brand street luge on eBay. Fast forward and he becomes world champion at a sport that takes place on Asphalt all around the world. Kolby gives us the breakdown on how different pavement types and conditions effect his sport and gives us a peek into the exciting sport itself, of which he has held the world speed record. -Marvin
