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…

Last week, Thor MX invited us to join them at Jeremy McGrath’s ranch in deep Southern California for a special event that we will have video from later today. While McGrath and friends blasted laps around the loamy track at Thing Valley Ranch, I decided to play around with the shiny new GoPro Her05 Black that I picked up at the product intro last month.

Would you believe that this shot was captured with a GoPro? Needless to say, the new camera is pretty badass, and it makes capturing great photos and videos as simple as pushing a button or saying a command. Yes, that’s right, I shot this photo by yelling, “GoPro take a photo!”

McGrath must’ve been wondering what the hell I was doing, crouching inside one of the corners on his track, holding out a “selfie stick” as he raced past, especially since I had my pro camera bag with me at the truck. Like me, however, he was also blown away by the images the new Hero5 are able to capture…
