Amazing athletes come and go but for someone to leave a permanent mark on the sport takes someone special. Darren Berrecloth is just such a person. For almost a decade he has been a major fixture in the mountain bike world, redefining impossible time after time. When he first started showing up in video segments, it was unlike anything anyone had ever seen. Things that were barely ridden before Darren would now 360. Few people have pushed the sport and changed it as much as The Claw.
I have to admit that when iXS asked me to shoot something with Darren I was nervous. This is one of those things that shooters dream of - an opportunity that few get. I gotta say, I love my job.
