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 :-)

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...

Sorry, this was a photo only session. Remember them?

Ha ha. To be honest there is good riding at La Grave and in the neighbouring valleys, but you've got to put in a ton of effort (but hey, when is it every good if you don't?). But to reach the good stuff there are some real ball ache climes and then we got unlucky with the weather, having to cower from rain, wind and generally inclement badness, which if you're just riding might not be a problem -just peal out of there- but if you're shooting, it can kind of ruin the flow of things. So yes go and ride there. Its adventurous and demands some effort, but it comes with rewards.
