Darcy Scores Cover of Mountain Bike Magazine


“Getting the cover of Mountain Bike magazine this month was a huge career
highlight! It’s one of the best feelings in the world to be walking through
the airport magazine rack and see yourself staring back at you, but this
cover was particularly special because the shot was taken on one of the
hardest (and best!) rides I had ever been on when I was in Chile recently.
To get that shot we had to hike on foot to a massive ridge in the Andes
while our bikes were shuttled up by horseback. Then we rode down some of
the steepest, roughest terrain fathomable for 8 hours! For that reason I
feel like I really earned this cover more than any other.”
