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…

It’s been about a year since I shot and wrote our feature story on Jeffrey Herlings, and a few photos still stick out in my memory as favorites of mine. This shot specifically was just one of many in the woods of his home track at M.C. Boekel in the Netherlands, and you can honestly throw a rock at his childhood home from this section of the track. To watch him ride this gnarly track at the speeds he was going is something I haven’t seen anything like since. Jeffrey sits 12th in points in the Monster Energy MXGP World Championship, and no doubt looks forward to working back to his winning ways through the coming years. With a healthy field of championship-winning contenders, it’s going to be a fight that most fans will enjoy watching! CLICK HERE for all things MXGP related on our website – this series rules.
