Margus Riga is among the most talented photographers in the mountain bike world. From shooting Wade Simmons’ Pipedream to regularly being featured on the Buzz pages in the magazine and as a Photo of the Day contributor, ‘Raptor Riga’ is most comfortable behind the lens. But that isn’t to say he is uncomfortable in the saddle—Riga thrives on multi-day backcountry missions that test your physical strength, mental fortitude and survival skills. On a normal day out with Riga, chances are he will beat you uphill, perfectly compose and execute beautiful images, then beat you down. Read our profile of him here. Recently he spent 48 hours in the Chilcotins with Scott Bikes, where filmer Max Berkowitz captured Riga in his element.
