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 always a pretty sad day for the sport when a rider hits the point of retirement, especially for such a likable guy like BTO Sports KTM’s Andrew Short. When I first entered the professional racing circuit for Transworld Motocross, I remember Shorty being of the easiest and more approachable 450 riders. There usually wasn’t a problem with the 250 guys because they were somewhat new and fresh to the scene like myself, but it always seemed that the premier class had more of the ego and grumpiness for whatever reason. Short, though, had none of that and he always had a smile on his face, which I liked. Although I’m still not convinced if he knows my name off the top of his head, I know that he always gave me the time of day. So to that, congratulations on one hell of a successful career, Shorty!
