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.

This was one of Akrigg’s favourite abandoned factory riding spots in his homeland of Yorkshire. It was covered in tons of loose bricks and we made this nice little kicker ramp to wallride.

Gwin was incredibly precise in his riding — he even grazed the wall with his shoulder. That’s what World Cup racing in a traditional Croatian village combined with the riding of Aaron Gwin looks like.

Sometimes all you need is a bit of luck. A rider came down just in front of Blenki and threw up some dust; the light was perfect and Blenki’s unique style just made this shot what it is.

When most people had already left the pits, we stayed around and had a beer with the riders. Then we just saw those two chatting in the sunset.

Fees and duties on non-UK deliveries: If you are ordering outside the UK, please be aware you may have to pay tax, duties or other fees on delivery. We use a professional fulfilment company to help ensure smooth postage and prepare any necessary paperwork, but since Brexit on 1 Jan 2021, some EU and even rest of world customers have reported having to pay a (seemingly random) fee on delivery. This has never happened before and should not be happening, but for the time being there doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem. Sorry for any confusion or complications during this period of unprecedented change – we hope Britain and the countries it exports to will soon smooth out any issues.
