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…

Week in and week out at any given round of racing you’ll find countless race bikes tuned and shined to perfection. It almost becomes normal to us as media folks, but you never forget seeing the mechanics framing the bikes after a long day of racing in preparation for the next rebuild. Rich Simmons is Cole Seely’s mechanic, and we recently spoke to him about his journey to wrenching for one of the most elite teams in the world. Pick up a copy of our latest magazine to see more beauty shots of the bike and learn what it takes to work on a bike like this 2017 Honda CRF450R.
