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…

When it comes to style and natural talent, there are a handful of riders that seem to be born with loads of it and showcase that every time they throw a leg over a dirt bike.
