The stunning photograph shows William Dunlop pushing himself – and his machine – to the limit at the Mid-Antrim 150.

Photographer Stephen Davison explains the story behind the shot in his best-selling book Hard Roads.

‘William Dunlop (Honda) shaves the grass on the bank at O’Hara’s Bend during the 250cc race at the 2005 Mid-Antrim 150. I watched the riders at this corner in the practice session the evening before and I was certain that during the race, when they were pushing a little harder. Someone would brush against the bank. I returned in the morning and crawled into a hole in the ditch to wait.’

This image is printed onto high quality 375gsm, PH-neutral matte canvas approved to Fine Art Trade Guild and Wilhelm Imaging Research standards. Combined with the Epson pigment based inks, canvases are guaranteed to remain crisp and vibrant for more than 75 years.

Each print is UV sealed for ultimate protection, and is supplied complete with a special hanging bracket for flush fitting onto standard picture hooks.

The canvases are stretched over a finger jointed, kiln dried Scandinavian pine stretching frame.
