We like surprising people with their cover shots, but when we can’t do it ourselves we put someone else up to the task. In this case, the photographer himself, Bruno Long surprised his friend and rider in the photo, Selim. Here’s what Long had to say about Selim’s reaction to making the June cover of Bike Magazine: “He smashed about 5-6 beers at the end of the work day and his wife had to drive all the way to Squamish for their weekend getaway. Needless to say, he was pretty stoked.”
