In 2003, Dave Watson, then a rider on the Kona Clump team, set off to the 100th anniversary Tour de France with Freeride Entertainment and photographer Scott Markewitz with the goal of road gapping over the race. This sniper jump took coordination and balls and kicked off a flurry of protest, praise and more press than any other gap ever attempted. The inset image is part of a never before seen sequence, shot from one of the several vantage points Scott set up to capture this amazing feat. Now PinkBike and Scott Markewitz have worked to animate this sequence as part of PinkBike’s Sequence Saturday, a weekly series that features some of the most exciting photo sequences ever captured. See it there now. To see the famous main sequence Kona poster we made to celebrate this event, click here.
