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…
In less than a week, I’ll be heading out to Minneapolis to cover the X Games and I look forward to the madness to come. While Best Whip, Step Up, and Best Trick are staples of moto, they’ve added in Quarter Pipe High Air along with some Harley Davidson flat track too – this should be a good year. Being a skateboarder my whole life, seeing a motocross bike do an air on a giant quarter pipe is so rad and unbelievable to me. Axell Hodges is one of the competitors, and judging by this shot he’s got it pretty figured out. Will the quarter pipe steal the show? We will fin out next weekend!
