This image originally appeared in BIKE Magazine, and was Paul's first two page photo spread. This image was captured by photographer Justin Olsen during production of the mountain bike film "Where The Trail Ends" by Freeride Entertainment / Red Bull Media House.
This photo auction is being offered by Photographer Justin Olsen in partnership with Scott Bicycles to help raise funds for professional mountain bike athlete Paul Basagoitia. Paul was recently injured in competition, and is making his way through a long and costly recovery process.
Selected by Scott Secco - Photographer Justin Olsen auctioned off this photo to benefit the #irideforpaul fundraiser. Our thoughts are with Paul Bas as he works toward recovery from his Rampage crash. Bas is a hero to many of us and more importantly a genuinely nice guy, this photo reminds us of all the inspiration he's given us over the years.
