The discipline of Enduro has sparked like wildfire; it is The New Black, it is the new "it" niche of the mountain bike industry and race scene.  While it is nothing new, the progress of the riders, courses, and bikes are a complete departure from what once was.  What was once seen as a great...

Do A Trick!

Slopestyle practice was a whole new venture for me, as I've never really shot or been around this part of the sport.  I'll say this:   it's really, really cool.  You never know what's going to happen next, you can't "see" what tricks the riders are about to throw until it's happening - very different from...

Going In Circles

Pumptrack was delayed from golden-hour-lighting time of 5pm on Thursday, to 7pm under shitty lights on Friday.  Not too many "banger" shots, but here are a few from practice, and then the race - just putting these up for the sake of posterity, not the most thrilling of photo sets.

It's been a while since I spent the occasion with an actual group, out on the town, doing what one does on one's birthday. It was bittersweet, as... Continue Reading →

Curtain Call

Just under two weeks left in Queenstown!It has been unreal how fast this adventure has zoomed by.  Granted, there is still a lot left on the itinerary, but nonetheless, it's seems like just yesterday that I was running across the Auckland airport to my connecting flight to Queenstown, hastily texting home that I'd landed in...

Time Is A-Flyin’

Holy flying time Batman...it's March 1st, and I really can't believe it.  This adventure is now winding down to its last few weeks, all of which will pass by at Mach 1, no doubt.  I've been thinking back on what I've done (and haven't) since I first found myself here on the other side of...
