Juraj Koren (SVK) is in the wilds en route to Turnpoint 7 Titlis. The 27-year-old Slovakian, in 16th place, is at 2500m, having hiked over 50km today. He is presumably bivvying at altitude and hoping for an early flight towards Titlis in the morning. He is certainly at home at height. He says: 'I was born with a view of the highest mountains of Slovakia, the High Tatra. Mountains and being in nature have become the most important part of my life. Ski-touring, hiking, cross country skiing, climbing, trail running, flying – that's what I did for the last 20 years.' He also started flying at just six years old.
