Photos by Colton Aeck
AMA Pro racer Colton Aeck was injured at the Dallas Supercross when he was landed on over a triple. Since then, he has been recovering, but he came out to Glen Helen to watch his friend and Supercross mechanic Bradley Denton race at REM. MXA’s Debbie Tamietti asked if he would like to entertain himself by shooting photos of the races. She lent Colton her spare camera, explained the buttons and let him loose. These are Colton’s photos.

During the Supercross season Bradley Denton went on the road to work on Colton’s bike. Colton came to Glen Helen to help Bradley.

It was 90 degrees at Glen Helen and everybody needed a little help from a friend.

Kurt Nicoll (8) finished second in the FIM 500 World Championships four times, but he rarely finishes second at Glen Helen. Kurt won the Vet Pro class (even though he is over 50 years old).

It’s always nice to have something to bank off of on a fast sweeper. We’re not sure that it should be a big rock.
