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’s nothing like the pinup side of the TransWorld Motocross poster to combat a case of the Mondays, so here’s a sneak peek at the February 2017 poster that will be showing up in your mailbox several weeks from now. Oftentimes, it’s a shame that only one photo makes it to print each month, as most shoots involve several wardrobe changes.
We shot this photo at the KTM USA headquarters with our 2017 250 SX-F test bike. Mike Bland and the team at Split Designs Co. handled the graphics, and Jeff Christman sewed up a custom SDG USA seat cover for us. The FMF Racing pipe was installed by Jason McCune of Insideline Connect, and the lovely Hannah Jensen brought it all together. We’ll have a photo gallery and behind-the-scenes video in future weeks on TransWorldMX.com, but for now, enjoy this single shot, our photo of the day.
