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…

There are a lot of riders who spend years attempting to make a Supercross main event, but that’s not the case for California’s Justin Hoeft. In a last minute fill-in ride for Ecuadorian Martin Castelo (who had visa issues) at the IBcorp Racing team, Justin managed to make the main in his Supercross debut and score 17th place on the difficult racetrack. Doing it all in memory of his younger brother Tyler who passed away in a tragic crash in 2015, there’s no doubt that he was smiling down on him as he hit a huge career milestone under the lights in Oakland. Much respect and props to you, Justin!
