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…

Zach Osborne’s story is definitely unique compared to most of the guys he’s currently racing. The friendly east coast native has been around the world and back, most recently riding for the Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna team. Last weekend marked Zach’s first-ever Supercross victory after coming very close many times before, and it was an emotional night for him and his family. We dove into his story back in our December issue, and shooting with him was one of the most productive and memorable shoots I’ve been lucky to be a part of. “I’m here for you, man – I’ll ride until it’s dark!” Zach mentioned as I asked to make sure he was cool to keep going as the sun went down. The result was plenty of options for our cover and feature. For this specific shot it was pretty dark, and I used a flash to pop him as I panned at 60th of a second. Good times with good people, and anytime the rider is just as excited as the photographer it usually means we’re going to get the goods!
