This is where Olly Wilkins learnt the art of hike-a-bike. He instantly bonded with the sport and now prefers to carry his bike up to his London flat instead of using the elevator. He lives on the 7th floor.

Ruddy hell those guys are good. Lucky I happened to be up there already with my cameras snapping pics of my dog for family christmas cards when they came by.

Movies For Your Monday
Thanks, A man, rather than 'the man' perhaps. That said yes I do still ride Fox shocks, not least 'cos thats what usually come fitted on my Yetis and to date they have carried me though a lot of banging' adventures without a mishap, up, down and across a lot of places. So I guess I am still kinda happy with them. They work, or do for me. Make sense? A proof of the pudding kind of idea. But whatever the shock, the principle is the same. Set it up right and go and ride your bike. :-)

Ah yes, it is indeed an 'unfortunate' blight or least, a reflection of our sport that requires adverts to run ahead of the main programming, popularly termed 'pre-roll' if I am not mistaken, that allow the powers that be to generate income, in order to pay for such enlightening programming. OK cut the BS.. in a nutshell yep they run adverts for their shop so they can pay me to make these films. Get past the ads and pop ups and whatever else the interweb wants us to sit through and hopefully there might be a little entertainment value and who knows the odd pearl of wisdom in my tech vids. Stay watching..

Downtime in The Alps With Richie Rude and Jared Graves
Oh yeah and the T-shirts in the shots are some fancy tech weave thing that Yeti uses in its riding shirts. casual look, but they are great performers on the bike. They don't make me faster, but they get rid of the sweat really well.

Nikon D3s, 70-200/2.8, 24-70/2.8, 16-35/4 and 50/1.4 on this shoot. Hope that helps. I also use a Nikon D600 + 70-200/4, Zeiss 18/3.5, 50/1.5 combo for more remote mutli-day carry everything trips where I want to go lighter, and Leica M9, with Zeiss 18/4, 50/1.5, Leica 90/2.8 combo if I want to go even lighter. Wow that was geeky wasn't it.

Yes, they let a photo monkey loose with the keyboard, apologies for that, ha ha. The idea here was to just caption the images and let the photos do the talking rather than do a full written feature. So I just wanted to add a little backstory to the images and put La Grave in context.

Thanks for the err.. kudos, kudos100. I've been a pro photographer for 16 years so I'm hoping I've learnt a thing or two by now about nailing a good shot :-)

Downtime in The Alps With Richie Rude and Jared Graves
Well actually while it was a "photo shoot" we were usually out riding about 4-5 hours for each of these photo sessions. Which means that they were actually real rides.. up to the top of peaks and down to the bottom of the valleys. The guys are actually so at home on bikes that these sessions are just a little playtime in between the races.. no kneepads or packs or anything. To be honest Graves and Rude are such machines that a waterbottle and a couple of spares stuffed in a back pocket is enough for this kind of ride. Weird but true. Me... I'm packing a 20Kg backpack with cameras, spares, jacket and Emergency locator beacon...
