“The MSA start hut is a pho­tog­ra­pher’s favourite with its nat­u­ral ‘stu­dio-light’ and pitch-black back­ground. Rid­ers queue up and drop in fast dur­ing prac­tice so you have to be quick, but I got lucky with Gwin as he gave me this pass­ing bad-ass look. It was the same year he would de­stroy the field in the pour­ing rain on one of the most leg­endary race runs of all time.”
