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 pretty cool to see how much a bike’s suspension works through the whoops of a professional Supercross track. This image is a perfect example, and only for this 1000th of a second Shane McElrath’s forks are caught completely bottomed out during this pass through the whoops. Watching in person you may have never noticed it based on how smooth they make their way through these tough sections, and this is why cameras are rad! Shane has been through a lot since the nationals, and was a proven championship contender in 2017. It will be exciting to watch him race in 2018!
