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…
Every track has “that jump.” You know the one we’re talking about: guys will circle back to scrub or whip over it repeatedly while their buddy stands off to the side to capture the style on camera. For Glen Helen, that would be the hip jump by Yamaha Hill. It’s one of the must-shoot stops for photographers at either the National or just a practice day, and everyone has a favorite angle to capture riders as they float over the hit. We stood back with cameras in hand as Justin Bogle laid his RCH/Yoshimura/Suzuki Factory Racing RM-Z450 over during Thursday’s press riding session and clicked the shutter.
