The Fight to the Frontline
From £30

Available in two standard sizes and as a fine print.

The Megavalanche has perhaps the most iconic race start in the business. Here, Pic Blanc is covered in snow with hundreds of ant-like mountain bikers dropping in to one of the toughest races out there.

I was lucky enough to bag myself a seat in the event’s helicopter, albeit leaning over the event filmer and photographer wondering why I was the only one without a harness. I was ecstatic hanging out the side of the chopper, watching one of the most prestigious races from an angle experienced by very few. I was in awe of the mountains, the riders battling and the terrifying manoeuvres by the pilot.

An hour later, I was out of the helicopter, the race was over and I was sat on the side of the road waiting for a service bus to take me back to Alpe d’huez. At the Mega, even working as media is an adventure.

In Val di Sole 2008 Sam Hill was on fire, 10sec ahead when he launched off the ski jump into the finish arena. Moments later he was on the ground scrambling to get himself to the finish line.

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.

This was the very first Dirt Magazine cover Sven Martin landed. It was a huge honour for him because Dirt was the gravity bible at the time and also because it was THE legendary Chris Kovarik.

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.

This is Hecklers Rock as Stevie would always want it to be remembered. Course tape down, beers flying, crowd wildly roaring and partying.
