In between races, we took some time to browse our hard drives and look at photos taken throughout the year. We'll highlight each shot in a daily post, with the image sized to fit your computer screen or smartphone and described with a small backstory…

There are many different ways to motivate your rider during a moto, and today’s “Photo of the Day” presented by O’Neal shows a proper one. During one of the opening motos of this summer at Glen Helen, I wanted a shot of a mechanic in action and visualized the rider speeding by. I set up for the shot, focused on Daniel, and took one flash lit shot as Dean sped by. I didn’t know Daniel was going to throw the horns, and he probably didn’t know I was about to shoot this photo. This was the result, one and done! This was printed in our September issue featuring Dean Wilson – did you see it yet?
