Bruno Long Wins Red Bull Illume Photo Contest RAW Category
@njcbps: RAW is a data file, not a photo. And this catagory allows editing so its quite misleading... You shoot RAW to control all processing, not to show off in a contest thats for sure.

Pre-Order Your 2022 Pinkbike/Trailforks Calendar Today!
False... Photographers are payed via profit sharing structure based in calendar sales. And they all sign a usage agreement giving permission and agreeing to the terms prior to printing. Nothing is taken/exploited here

@SvenNorske: yup, it's smile for the asshats on the internet so they can call you smug and cocky. Or dont smile so they can say you are a sore loser... can't win

Richie Rude Disqualified from EWS Tweed Valley
@jaame: right right yes of course...take the start go flat out and set the fastest time on the stage up until that point and put on an act with your whole team worthy of an Oscar... Or simply not Get suspicious when riders are inexplicably ill or injured and dont race for health reasons... Not when they are fighting for a win three weeks in a row and just went balls to the wall for the win. But hey, ive never worn a tinfoil hat so not cant comment for that lot ;-)

@Gabe001: haha... given 2014/15 conditions, May would have been worse as ive been told spring is always wet. Seems late September into October is usually dry, and it certainly was the weeks prior... But as the saying goes, if you want to end a drought just hold a bike race

Richie Rude Disqualified from EWS Tweed Valley
@chillescarpe: ahahahah too good...he and jack would have been tested after every race all season including the previous three weeks in a row. So tell me... Why would a rider, tested round after round in contentionfor the overall them DQ themselves ? What would be theor incentive to dope if they were only going to drop out on purpose? Do you realize how backwards your thinking is here ?

Ah yes the challenge of a podium photo. In a perfect world there are cheers smiles and epic champage spray. But in reality some bottles dont pop, or not at the same time, or key figures duck for cover. Maybe one is smiling while the other is stright faced, or somwone else is looking the wrong way to friends... We could have posted the one with Richie and jack smiling and chatting, but then jesse would have looked sad. Or one of Richie spraying himself in the face with his own champagne with Jack looking the other way to avoid the spray (then someone would say he was snubbing Richie)... the true fact is all three riders were psyched to be there, happy for each other, and happy for their own accomplishments... Anything other than that is an alternative reality/narrative being created my looking at a split second in time... These are real people, just like you amd me. They are not robots

Race Day Photo Epic: EWS Tweed Valley 2021
@skill7: we've used the press releases issued post-race to accredited journalists few years now. Often modified to highlight some points over others, etc... and PB was the media partner of the EWS prior to 2020 so not a new/lazy thing. As photographers we are on the hill and in the trenches so to speak all day, hustling stage to stage with not a moment to spare. often we rely on whatsapp messages from the EWS for updates through the day as we literally have no time to check live timing or know whats going on. A synopsis of the day is not something we can take note of as it unfolds (unlike DH for example where i will keep notes during finals to prepare a recap later). The EWS staff tasked with follwing the action has a far better grasp of how the race unfolds and thier perspective combined with our photos is often used to create the content you see here... Cheers
