Put a bunch of mountain bikers together, and you get antics. Put a bunch of professional mountain bikers together, and you get professional antics.

This time, though, things would be different. They’d be in Spain.
Photographer Haruki ‘Harookz’ Noguchi was on hand to bear witness, and was kind enough to provide us with a behind-the-scenes look at what happens when some of mountain biking’s best riders, cinematographers and photographers spend a month together.
