Early on in the day while approaching the alpine terrain above Retallack Lodge I noticed this ridge line. Immediately I had high hopes for a silhouetted sunset photo later on in the day. So after spending the day riding and snapping photos we came back to it just as the sun went below the horizon. Kevin guinea pigged the ridge line for me working his way down it's steep slope helping to create this image.

I've been planning to go on a photo trip with Kirill ever since I first saw his videos. For me as a central European, Russia has always been that crazy and kinda exotic country you probably never get a chance to check out yourself, so I was extremely anxious to experience it first hand. When Kirill didn't get the chance to compete at the Rampage, we decided to go on a road trip through Russia instead. It turned out to be a 4000km, 12 day marathon, scouting locations and looking for perfect natural features to shoot. When we found this abandoned mine, we knew we had a great backdrop for some otherworldly photos. Kirill flipped the stepdown first try and went down after a couple of metres - this is the second try and he nailed it perfectly! I shot it as a panoramic photo to be able to include the complete location, which is also why the photo ratio is about 2:1. The original consists of 25 layers and has a resolution of roughly 70 megapixels! ;) Make sure to check it out in highres 1600px width for the best viewing experience!!

Drop Bars, thin nobly tyres and lots of rain... not your usual chosen method of riding a bike off road, but the 3 Peaks Cyclocross race is a truly unique race that really sorts the men from the boys. Nick Craig here, on his way to 3rd place at the 2012 race.
