Congrats to highrevs!!

I hope I'm not stealing gastro's thunder in saying this but I couldn't keep it to myself until tomorrow (ah, the advantages of living on Pacific Time):

The March issue of Mountain Bike Action just came out and highrevs has a photo published in it! The month's Inside the Pro's Bikes feature on pgs. 126-127 features Dual Slalom National Champion and NC denizen Chris Herndon and his Specialized SX - - and you-know-who captured the moment.

Way to go, highrevs!

Wooooo Hooooo! Let’s celebrate!


Thanks guys!!! I just hope its only the beginning.

The bummer of it is I don't have a copy of the issue yet. But I just called B&N and they have a whole stack of them.

Yeah thats the reason i missed the ride that weekend. I was going to try and make it down after the shoot, but the weather delayed us a little bit and i ended up staying in Banner Elk/Boone the whole weekend.

This is one of my favorite photos of Herndon from a NORBA event @ Sugar Mtn. last year.


Chris is a great guy, who is really down to earth and I'm way stoked he asked me to do the shoot for MBA.

Yeah Chris is a great guy. I talked to him the other day and it looks like he's got a great new deal worked out with Decline/Specialized for NORBA and world cups this year. It's a killer lineup on the team. I'll try to talk to him this weekend and give you the scoop on it. I think they're just tying up the last few loose ends.

Super cool, I knew Decline had put an offer out there. I'm looking forward t getting an update.

Well, I got my hands on a copy of the issue of MBA… dude I’m so pumped. It was a pretty awesome feeling to open an internationally distributed magazine and see an image of mine spread across the majority of two pages. I have had a few things printed in local publications, but this created a completely different level of stokedness. Reading the associated text was pretty cool too. The little story that detailed Chris's win in the finals and the quotes pretty much summed up his down to earth vibe.

Highrev, I am impressed that you made the shot without Mtnbiker66 holding the external flash. You are the man.
