Chris Kovarik can drift a corner like no one else, and when I chose to shoot with him for my Deep Summer slide show this was one of the shots I had in mind. I know it's been done on video before, but I thought it would make a cool sequence as well. I wouldn't normally be comfortable with most riders going this fast, this close to my camera, but for some reason I wasn't overly stressed lying on the ground unable to move with Chris drifting sideways at high speed barely a foot from my head...
