Old Dirt Road in Buffalo Creek, Colorado

The sun was rising over the Rockies as the mountain bikers began their grueling 100 mile Bailey Hundo Enduro mountain bike race in Buffalo Creek, Colorado. After the shotgun start, the racers ascended into the mountains as we drove down the old dirt road to beat the racers to their first check point. That's when this happened. The truck ahead of us, hauling a mountain bike, kicked up dirt and turned the morning sunlight into magic.
