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…

There are only a few dudes out there who can make my stomach turn completely upside down with their whips, and Tom Parsons is at the top of that list. With two major whip titles already under his belt, he’s always a favorite at any competition, and Tom P’s game was on point again this year at Monster Energy Cup’s Dirt Shark Biggest Whip Contest. “I was super pumped to get back to Monster Energy Cup this year, because I knew a panel of judges would be deciding my fate,” Tom told me. The crazy part, though? For any whip chucker, a major factor in the mechanics involved with throwing a nasty whip is the bike, and Tom was competing on a KTM this year instead of his usual Honda. “Ever since my switch to the KTM this year I’ve been feeling really good,” he said. “I had to relearn how to get upside down, though, and when it finally happened it was like the first time all over again! I felt really good at X Games earlier this year, too—I don’t think my whips were that much different than now, but with the Twitter vote I’m at a major disadvantage to other guys in the event, so it was nice to get back to judges deciding who was the best!” Keep killin’ it, Tom P.
