Self-portrait dropping into Neihu District. There's about a 15 minute window where the light is right to get this shot, on the 4th night I nailed it just before a thunderstorm rolled in and it rained for a week straight. *Despite the appearance all the lights are actually mounted backwards under the seat and behind my helmet to leave a trail while riding away from the camera. 20 second exposure on a 10 second delay, flash remotely fired from my handlebar.
Loic Bruni took his first podium here last year. He qualified first today. Can Loic take his first World Cup win here tomorrow? He was .415 seconds up on Aaron Gwin. If he does, it could be a real close one.
