After Crankworx Rotorua in 2020, just as the Covid pandemic was kicking off, I travelled down to Queenstown to shoot with Emil Johansson and Erik Fedko. We made our way to some exclusive jumps that Scott Robb had helped build. Emil and Erik came along to check them out, however, there was still enough visibility in the twilight to ride, so the boys wanted to have a go. The jumps needed to be watered before they could drop in though, and here you have the image of Scott and his watering can, making sure the jumps are looked after. Doesn't matter who's riding, the jumps will always need to be watered.
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
