Last weekend there was a Red Bull Illume sponsered event held up in Duluth, MN. It’s purpose was to get Mt. Bikers, Trials and BMX’ers to get together with some professional photographers to take some pictures to enter into the Red Bull Illume photo competition. Three of us MN unicyclists were able to make it there and we had a blast. Check out this link for pictures;
