For the second year in a row I had the opportunity to attend one of the craziest mountain bike competitions on Earth, Red Bull Rampage. Last year I was only a spectator, but afterwards I told myself I'd be going back with a media pass so I could get access to the entire mountain. In August I was approached by SaltRoads, a new online magazine, to be their sports photographer. I told them I'd love to and I had a great idea for the first event I'd like to cover!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience for my second trip to Rampage. I got to spend two days with the riders before any competition began, making notes of their lines and getting to know them. I was able to make a few friends within the photography industry that I hope to see there again next year. In all I was able to spend five days on the mountain. Check out some of the photos, and make sure to watch all the action on NBC. Rampage aires Dec. 27th at 4pm EST!
