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…

Since the launch of our magazine, we’ve included a free pullout poster. In addition to giving readers something cool to hang on their walls, it is a distinguishing factor that sets us apart from the other motocross magazines on the newsstand. Initially, one side featured a racer, and the other a freestyle rider. In our fourth-ever issue, we decided to experiment with a pinup model on one side of the poster and it was met with so much positive feedback, that the poster has been the way ever since. Sure, there have been some angry mothers and dismayed librarians along the way, but for the most part, the racers on the poster usually find themselves eating some drywall each month.

Last week, after we finished shooting the December poster, our friend Crystal Cannon – manager of the Rockstar Energy models – asked us to help snap some shots of her girls for their Instagram, and we were glad to help. SoCal riders will recognize this as the tunnel at Glen Helen Raceway that lies in front of the famous Talladega corner. Funny to think that while this was going on, hundreds of riders were jumping over our heads, oblivious to what they were missing…
