Diamondback DF5 Pro Factory Team Trip to Utah 7

Back in April 2011, the Diamondback Pro Factory Team gathered together at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA. This was the first time the team had been together as a collective. We took this opportunity after the Sea Otter event to head out to the Utah desert for a week of riding to amass photo and video content for the season. Joining us on the trip were DF5 riders Kelly McGarry, Eric Porter, Kyle Thomas and Billy Lewis along with pro photographers Justin Olsen and Ian Hylands and videographer Kevin Philbin.

The week was a blast and was a great opportunity for everyone to get to know each other. The riding was off the hook and everyone came away feeling good to be a part of such a great team. Early mornings and late nights were filled with shooting and usual mountain bike road trip antics. And no trip is complete without a few good crashes to keep us awake and on our toes. Luckily everyone fared well and we all walked away stoked to be a part of an industry that affords us the luxury of living the lives we do.

Huge thanks to Red Bull and Clif Bar for supporting the trip.

    I've got some new Beastie Boys to buy. That early shot with the moth was amazing. Kelly Mcgarry is DB's best investment to date.

    This is so good! You crazy crazy bastards! I love it. Porter, you are seriously so lucky! Remember 30mph is optimal, not 31!
