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…

I gotta say it’s pretty special to have the FIM Motocross World Championship back in the United States again this year. While it doesn’t get the attention of our own outdoor series, being able to watch the elite riders of both the MXGP series and the Pro Motocross series battle each other on what many of us consider one of the greatest tracks in the world, Glen Helen, is unreal, and hopefully the World Championship will gain more popularity among American fans in the future.

Gariboldi Honda’s Tim Gajser, the 2016 MXGP World Champion, was one of several MXGP riders we were excited to see line up last weekend at the MXGP of USA at Glen Helen, and watching the Slovenian go to war in the hills of Southern California was an amazing experience. This shot of Gajser was snapped by our photo editor Mike Emery, and I think it captures both the style and speed that he’s known for. Definitely keep your eye on this dude at the 2016 Motocross of Nations in a couple weeks!
