American Love Affair - Mike Rose
Steve Peat and I drove out to the desert in Nevada to escape the chaos of the Interbike show in Las Vegas. It had been a long year for Peaty, one in which he secured his first DH World Cup overall title. But he still had the time to cram in a photoshoot for the Dirt Magazine cover before rushing off to qualify for Red Bull Rampage and then return to Vegas to watch a Supercross race. Taking this photo was not easy — I’d forgotten the film for my camera (luckily Peaty brought some with him), then I kept repeatedly leaving the lens cap on.
