Now that the offseason is here, we've got 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 is an image that I snapped during the last 30 minutes my trip to Woodward West, and the stylish rider in the shot is young Max Lee (son of Troy Lee). A few weeks ago, I headed up to Tehachapi, CA to cover Brian Lopes' All Star Weekend/birthday bash. Every year that he's able to, the mountain bike world champion assembles a list of friends from various disciplines (BMX, Downhill MTB, cycling, motocross, etc.) to come together for a weekend of fun at a location of his choice, so for this time around Lopes decided upon Woodward West. Secretly, it's his birthday, too!
I raced BMX for a while when I was a kid, so I was beyond stoked to have the opportunity to visit Woodward, as I had always seen it in movies. So, my buddy Mike Sleeter and I road tripped up to the action sports paradise for a memorable weekend that may have been a little out of our element. Haha! Sleeter and I had an awesome time and I can't thank Brian Lopes and Jake Kinney enough for an incredible weekend.
