Big Lines and Big Inspiration: A Red Bull Formation Photo Essay
I had the chance to experience the magic of
Red Bull Formation, and I can’t even begin to describe how incredibly inspiring it was to watch all the women support each other to reach their goals.
The vibe at the venue was just pure love and stoke, and I hope that the photos I shot help capture how insane the lines were, as well as showcase what happens when women come together to progress. Not only in the mountain bike sport, but also in other fields such as photography and videography.
Diggers like Brooklyn Bell working hard to form the huge lines.
