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…

How many times have you watched last weekend’s 450SX main on replay? Geez, what a race. When Eli Tomac and Ryan Dungey squared up in the heat race the crowd erupted into a frenzy, and that was only a sign of what was to come. This photo was snapped when the gate dropped for the main event, and moments later Eli would also find himself at the worst odds to come out of this race in the points lead. You all watched the incredible charge, and the end outcome is Eli holding the only red plate this coming weekend in East Rutherford. The bottom line here is that Eli Tomac was untouchable in Salt Lake and proved he will make it happen, but we should all remember to never count out a champion – Ryan Dungey wasn’t handed any of his Supercross Championships and certainly won’t hand this one over to Eli. Three points ahead Eli is now in control, but you can bet these next two main events are going to be entertaining!
