Mind The Gap

A wooden jump leads up to a massive canyon gap at the Red Bull Rampage downhill mountain biking event in Utah.

|| Yup, this gap jump is huge. We arrived at the Red Bull Rampage venue a day early to see practice runs and watch the building take place. A competitor eyes up the canyon gap. Later, only a handful of the professional freeride and downhill mountain bike riders would hit this gap. A grip of outdoor and sports photographers were in attendance. I can’t blame the crowds, this is an opportunity for some amazing outdoor photos.

Virgin, Utah is hot and dirty too…real hot. Even though it took me about a week to clean the dust out of my lenses, I would say it was worth the trip. I traveled down to the event with photographers Re Wikstrom, Stan Evans, and Erik Seo. Everyone bagged their share of photos and much fun was had. ||
