Photo of the Week: High Point

Watching Ricky Carmichael attack a track during the Nationals is truly a site to behold, and something we are going to miss after he finishes out his last few races. There’s no doubt that his line selection and aggressiveness are a part of what sets him apart from the rest of the pack.

This weekend at High Point, Ricky was the only rider doubling over this “tunnel jump” during the first moto — although several tried it during practice. It wasn’t until RC started to gain ground on him that James Stewart began doubling the jump in moto number one. But what we really enjoy about this photo is the way every man, woman and child in the crowd is fixated on RC as flies over their heads.

Image Data: Canon EOS 1D Mark II, Canon 70-200 2.8 lens, ISO 100, 1/4000 f/3.5
