The idea for this shot came 2 years ago when Vittorio Brumotti and I visited this location for a Smith shoot. Vittorio is a crazy man, and warned me only the day before departure. When we were inspecting the location, I saw that huge rock and said: "Can't go up there now! That will take some organizing later". So, we ended up with a different shot and planned to come back with a larger crew.
More info inside,On May 18 2010, Victor, in collaboration with a staff of about 25 people (cameramen, mountain climbers, photographers, assistants, etc.) made our way back to set the Guinness World Record for the most consecutive bicycle back-wheel pogo hops with 71 rear wheel hops with security in place and 21 jumps without at 143 meters high! This event was possible thanks to the courage of Victor, his balls, and his sponsor Sector.
In Italy, Vittorio Brumotti is a real star. Years with his bicycle have managed to make him very popular! I've photographed with Vittorio some years and I've followed him on different expeditions. Takes major balls to do what he did!
