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…
Southern California is well-known for some of the best riding spots in the world, but with a generally dry climate year round, two things the motocross Mecca tends to lack are amazing dirt and deep ruts. When the clouds do roll in and the rain finally dumps, however, SoCal soil can act like a sponge and quickly transform itself into some of the best dirt around.
This shot is of Rockstar Energy Husqvarna amateur standout Michael Mosiman taking full advantage of some of the winter storms we’ve had here recently, carving deep into the the rain-soaked terra firma of Murrieta, California.
