As a mountain biking photographer, I am always happy to see my photo on the cover. This time, the happiness doubles for the effort that went into this photo shoot. Getting up at 2 a.m. and hiking all night to be at the top of the mountains by 5 a.m. for the sunrise, it’s not the ideal way I spent my nights.. but once the sun came out, you know it was all worth it! It was still cloudy around 3 a.m. and I was just hoping that by the time we get up there the clouds would disappear. And they did!
Huge thanks goes to Laci Tomas, the rider, and one of the nicest people I know. This would not happened without his help, great knowledge of the area and the commitment. It was his idea to go and shoot at sunrise, which really surprised me, as most of the riders would not hike all night for me to just get a shot.
