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...
Wednesdays are for wheelies, so today’s Photo of the Day is of GEICO Honda’s Jordon Smith powering through a sweeping banked corner at the opening round of the 2016 Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship at Hangtown. Wheelies make for rad photos, but I particularly like this one with Smith coming straight toward the camera in addition to his aggressive body position and the lean of the bike--the action may be frozen but the speed is still there! #WheelieWednesday
