Windy Hill 5.1.11 race

It's back to Windy Hill MX and I'm loving every minute of it. Hats off to Joe and Peggy Ussery for all of their hard work. The track was fabulous!

So far this is my second race of the year from Windy Hill... and every time is just like the first time. No wonder I love this track so much. Yet again, I ran into some good friends that I haven't seen in a while.

Brandon Beabout MX training school - Pineville MX SC

I got a call from David Root asking if I wanted to tag along for the ride while they go to Pineville MX for a mx school by Brandon Beabout. As a photographer, I LOVE taking road trips when I don't have to drive, and I like visiting new tracks. So it was win-win for me.

This time of the year was right about the time when it was starting to get hot. This track is located pretty close to the beach as I couldn't help but notice the moss hanging down on the trees. So the knats were a little annoying at first but a quick spray of off quickly solved the situation.

This was my first time watching a mx training school. Brandon was pretty tuff of these guys. I was glad to  see that too. Nowadays, I spend all my time behind a camera, but I sure do remember my riding days. And being tuff is part of this sport.

It was tough to decide on a few favorites. Have a look at my choices.

This is what happens if you're late or the last one to practice.

Windy Hill Motocross 3.20.11

I love Windy Hill MX! This track is one of my favorite tracks to come visit and snap a few shots of the riders. In addition to that, Joe and Peggy Ussery are as friendly as it gets! They've always welcomed me to go anywhere on the track I feel like going in the name of photography. I can't say thank you enough to those folks!

On this particular weekend, I really hit the jackpot (as they say). I don't remember exactly how long it's been but I ran into a few friends that I haven't seen in several years. Mix that up with your other friends who are there racing and you've got a mighty good recipe for a good day.

These guys don't miss a beat! So nice to see them at every race!

I felt honored to have my logo on Garrison's bike!

A day at Wide Open

For the most part, our winters here in NC are, well hang on a minute. If you're from up North, then our winters are nothing. But if you're pure southern then our winters feel a bit cold. Either way you look at it, you can ride for the most part of our winters. And on this day at Wide Open MX Park, it was a green light to ride your heart out.

I've only been to this track a couple of times and there is definitely a reason this track is called Wide Open. There is a ton of land that this track is on. And there is no telling how many people this place could hold and still not be crowded.

On top of that, it's a great track for photography. I know the track owners put a lot of effort into keeping this track up cause it's always groomed and watered. A track this size will take a nice chunk of time of groom. Kudos to the Wide Open track owners!

A chili day at the Club!

I was stoked to finally get to the track after a late morning meeting nearly shot my chances to meet Kyle Pulley and Carlo Gagliardo at Club MX. It had recently snowed but to be honest, the sandy grounds at  club mx are screaming ... come and get me, come and get me. And when bad weather holds you back from riding... well, you know... you start getting a little jittery.

While I was there, the riders started busting out some sweet whips, no footers, front fender slaps and some other serious goonage! All in good times!!!

Here are a few of my favorites.
