This photo was taken in the stunning Turkish town of Göreme during the product shoot for the German bike company YT-Industries. After shooting at various spots for a couple of days, we found this special rock formation just around the corner of our basecamp.
It was pretty easy to convince our athlete Bryan Regnier to ride down the wall, but finding the perfect spot to take pictures from wasn’t easy at all. (The vertical chalk-walls weren’t appealing to take a walk on, let alone ride!)
Bryan could only go 2/3 of the way down the track before he had to jump sideways onto a platform, before the straight line would have led him into a 7m drop and a flat landing. He decided to just go for it, his comment was: “Don’t think – just ride!” At the end of the day it took us three tries until we captured this image.
