Jessy Nelson | Behind The Cover
When Jessy Nelson presented us with the idea of shooting his cover in the snow, we thought he crazy, but what if we pulled it off? So, we decided to give it a shot. Upon arrival at Mountain High in Wrightwood, California, we were honestly amazed by what the staff had made for us—a giant, supercross-style snow berm that sat on top of their highest slope. Doubts began to run through our head as we became concerned with the conditions of the snow, but we had to keep reminding ourselves that Nelson is a high-caliber, race-winning athlete; and if anyone can ride a dirt bike on snow, it would be him. Well, the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/Red Bull KTM rider immediately shut down any possible doubts we might’ve had by killing the snow berm time-after-time. The end result is what you now see on the April issue of TransWorld Motocross. Check out this behind the scenes video to see what went down that day.
