MAG 30


Section of my downhill mountain bike with a focus on the yellow rim and tire logos. The bike is an older Cannondale Super V 4000. In it’s hayday, it was the bike used by professional racers — and even by today’s standards, it’s not half bad.

This is my baby (the one that’s not a camera). She’s a little rough around the edges, but I love her anyways. It breaks my heart that I’ve been too busy to get out and ride over the last several years. From about the age of 17 to 20 I was riding every week and racing full seasons. Since then, I’ve been tapering off to not much riding at all.

Downhill mountain biking/racing was my main hobby until I found photography. Since that time, I’ve been riding less often and shooting more often. One of my main goals for this summer is to get back up on the mountain a handful of times and put some time on the saddle… I didn’t even ride it this last summer.

I see you have the same goal as I have. My bike wasn’t too busy last year. Couple years ago I’ve been riding almost every day but then work came and about year ago I had quite serious knee injury. This year as soon as spring will came I will jump on my bike and rebiuld my condition. Good luck and happy riding :)

Well maybe you can photograph downhill races and combine both of your passions?
