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…
X Games Austin 2016 is still about four months away, but let’s just say I’m already getting excited for this summer’s event with the return of Moto X Freestyle. The last X Games I attended was in 2013 when Adam Jones tied Taka Higashino for Freestyle gold, but Taka’s better first-run score was the tiebreaker when the judges dished out the medals on the podium. Jones has been putting in the practice time in between his busy schedule touring with Nitro Circus, and I’d say he’s one dude you can’t count out for this year’s competition with backflip combos like this lazy boy flip. Hopefully I’ll see you all at X!
