"Just as we set up lighting and got ready to shoot this jump during a DC Shoes pro ride day at Jeremy McGrath's ranch near the California-Mexico border, the most epic, rogue summer thunderstorm rolled in. We could literally see this massive wall of rain fast approaching and got off about two shots before us, our camera gear and Nate Adams (pictured) all got dumped on by Mother Nature." -- Garth Milan
