2010 was a great year for us here at Ride, and it produced some awesome covers, too. From Sergio Layos downside whipping in January to Chris Doyle spinning a no-handed 360 in December, we have all nine covers from the year and the stories behind them from the photographers that shot them. Enjoy, and make sure you subscribe for 2011!
Issue 161 – January/February 2010

This pocket at Catty is one of the best things I’ve ever seen at a set of trails, and pretty much everyone else on the Range of Motion dirt trip thought the same thing. Thanks again to the Catty locals for letting us come out. Sergio was roasting one-footed Euros across the pocket, but needed a little convincing to push through to the downside whip. I was already setup to shoot fisheye, and really, at the time, I actually preferred that angle to anything else. But, having two other photographers there (Mulligan and Zielinski) scrutinizing and analyzing, they both thought that I should give a long lens version a shot. Sergio was down with it, since he laced the first downside whip, so I moved all my crap and whambam, Z and Keith proved their superior angle-finding ability and we have a cover for my favorite Spaniard. I miss Sergio! —Ryan
