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…
Today’s “Photo Of The Day” features Justin Barcia, who will unfortunately be missing from the lineup tomorrow at Anaheim Two due to a thumb injury. It’s bummer news for sure, and heres to hoping for a speedy recovery. This over under bridge at A1 was a cool place to get a shot like this one of Barcia, showing how gnarly it can be to race at the highest levels in the 450SX class. Just in front of Barcia was Cole Seely, who put the power down and roosted the heck out of the number 51. This was a lap after lap scenario for all the riders, and if it’s any saving grace for Justin, he roosted Eli Tomac just the same about a second later. These are the little details of how intense the racing is, and it’s fun to try and capture all that through a lens.
