Once there was a man who worked in a factory from six in the morning until three in the afternoon. He lived in a basement with the plaster crumbling off the mouldy walls, and all he could see through the window was a gloomy enclosed area. That man was Jan Saudek, and he owned little more than the bicycle he rode to the factory and an old Flexaret 6 x 6. His most valuable assets were certainly his immense energy and relentless ambition.
