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…

 

Recent rainfall has “the hills” on my mind, and with any luck, Mike Emery and I will be chasing some riders through the SoCal hills by this time tomorrow, to capture some epic photos. Oddly enough, one of the freestyle heroes that I’ve ridden with in the hills that does not translate his incredible ramp skills to dirt is Japan’s Taka Higashino. Now, I may have been with him on an off day, but as far as I can tell, Taka-san is a metal ramp specialist! No matter: he is one of the baddest dudes in the game, as evidenced by this ridiculous body varial that he pulls off with relative ease. Follow Taka on Instagram at @takafmx
