THE NUMBER OF SWITCHBACKS WERE BEYOND COUNTING, AND ANOTHER INTRO

SUMMER STORM HAD JUST BLOWN IN, PUSHING US OFF THE TRAIL

AND DOWN INTO THE VALLEY FOR SAFETY. ALTHOUGH WE COULD RIDE THROUGH THE WEATHER ON MOST DAYS, THIS TIME WE HAD TO HEAD

FOR COVER. SHOOTING FILM HAD BECOME OUR “NEW NORMAL” BY THE END OF THE SECOND WEEK. COVERING THIRTY TO FIFTY KILOMETERS OF TRAIL PER DAY, THERE WERE ENDLESS MOMENTS THAT COULD BE

CAPTURED, HOWEVER, ONLY HAVING A FINITE AMOUNT OF FILM MADE

EACH SHOT MORE OF A DECISION TO BE WEIGHED RATHER THAN A WHIM TO BE INDULGED. THERE WAS NO KNOWING WHAT HAD BEEN CAPTURED

ALONG THE TRAILS IN THE ALPS, AT THE HAUSER FAMILY CABIN, OR

ALONG THE ROCKY RIVER CROSSINGS IN FRANCE. SNAPPING THIS SHOT WAS JUST ANOTHER GAMBLE, ONE THAT PAID OFF.
