Had a great shoot last week with photographer Henry Iddon. I was riding my new 2011 Ragley Blue Pig, which is just such a good bike for riding the technical trails of Hebden Bridge. Henry took some great action shots in the woods and up on the infamous ‘Steps of Death’. We were blessed with sunshine and I’ll be using the stills as part of the next great-rock.tv video cast, which will be all about the Blue Pig and it’s smaller brother the Piglet. The ‘Pig Cast’ will be out next week.

Photo shoots involve riding the same bit of trail as many times as it takes to get the shot. Down and back up the Steps of Death certainly got my blood pumping.
