Enter the Dragon with Steve ‘Mr Big’ Barker by Mike Rose

Enter the Dragon
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

The Welsh Dragon Downhill race series really seized the moment, setting the bar pretty high, showing that there was real terrain and there were big mountains on which to host downhill races in UK.

Hefty tracks with uplift attracted famous riders and locals alike. Such was the draw that racers like Steve ‘Mr Big’ Barker (pictured) made the trip down from the north just so that they could enjoy some real downhill racing. This shot became well known and a bit of a classic, regularly featuring in the back of Dirt Magazine in the advert for the Dragon DH series.

The end of a long day shooting in Vallnord Bikepark heading back down to town for some beers. Andy Lloyd was ahead, glanced up the mountain as James came into view through the cloud of dust. At that moment he saw the shot.

Is there ever a bad last-light sunset in Utah? This is from a 2009 photoshoot out near Green River. The crew shot some big stunts up high and, as the sun dipped down, James Doerfling surfed the ridge back down to the RV.
From £30
As Boris didn’t have any clients to shoot for, he had the freedom just to play around, so he used the 35mm and hid far away from the jumps. It turned out that he captured this striking silhouette of Kade’s unique style.
