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, we featured a photo gallery from South African photographer Etienne van Rensburg, who is a professional photographer employed by Specialized Bicycles. A motocross rider and fan himself, Etienne had never shot a motocross race before Hangtown, and his results were astounding. Click here to see the gallery in case you missed it!
Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki’s Adam Cianciarulo returned to action at Hangtown after missing the Supercross series due to a broken wrist. Once the most highly touted rookie pro, AC has struggled with numerous injuries since turning pro. He’s still getting back up to speed and finding his race pace, but we still believe AC to be a future champion in the sport. If it doesn’t work out, though, we’ve always got a spot for him on the TWMX staff…Adam used to pen an excellent guest editorial column for us when he was still an amateur!
