Globe-trotting riders Geoff Gulevich and KC Deane as they head to the wilds of Iceland for a truly epic biking experience. Their mission: Northern light hunt by mountain bike. The result was the runner up for MTB picture of the year.To quote the article on Pinkbike:
“Iceland has long been on my list of travel locations, not just for the riding but it’s hard not to see photos of the landscape and be captured by it. When Geoff, The Fast Fokus crew and I arrived, even leaving the airport was an incredible sight. The volcanic landscape covered in green moss is mesmerizing and photos hardly do it justice. The idea of going and finding perfect single track that laces through the hills was our goal. With the help of Magne from Icebike we set out to find the best trails the south island had to offer. Each day we set out we seemed to find better locations and trails than the day and week before. In addition to the landscape, the Northern Lights was something that we all wanted to see while we were in Iceland. With the cloud cover we were running out of hope after almost two weeks. But at the end of our trip we were surprised by clear skies and one of the most incredible light shows you can imagine. It was one of the most amazing locations I’ve ever seen in the world, with trails to match.” KC Deane, pro rider.
