A group of friends who like to do things slightly differently to the rest of the MTB crowd. South African photographer Eric 'Shin' Palmer joined the crew from Pure Darkness 2 - enjoy a collection of his work below!
Next to Matt's loop of doom, Nico Vink and Sam begin planning for Darkfest. The boys swopped their slopestyle bikes for Downhill bikes and Pure Darkness was officially a stop in The Fest Series.
The Garden Route Trail Park was such a rad spot and hosted some insane riding over the years, but for 2018 the boys wanted a hill with a bit more gradient that they could start fresh on. A opportunity opened up in Stellenbosch, just outside Cape Town.
