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…

After his second-consecutive 450 National victory this past weekend, Rocky Mountain ATV/MC/KTM’s Blake Baggett has taken control of the Lucas Oils 250 National MX Championship points lead. In what can only be described as the most unpredictable series in recent years, Baggett seems to have finally found the speed and consistency that he had on 250s earlier in his career. I first met Blake when he showed up to contest our inaugural TransWorld SLAM pro race back in 2009, and it’s been exciting to watch his career skyrocket in the years since. Once on the shy, reclusive side, Baggett has since come out of his shell and is one of the easiest riders to interact with at the races. It’s great to see him enjoying the success that he deserves.
