Wow, I love them! Those deep berm shots are incredible. I remember growing up as a kid and the United States finally winning the Motocross De Nations and Trophy De Nations after the Europeans dominated for so many years. Your composure, exposure and captures are awe inspiring! Congratulations on a great day of shooting.

I grew up in the east county with Ricky Johnson, Brock Glover, Scott Burnsworth, Ron Lachine, Marty Smith etc. I still see Marty on a regular basis here in town. When my days off change I'm going to try shooting our local track.

Great job Factoryphoto.

I like them, but really wish you had went with a little less shutter speed, I like to see a bit of movement in the bikes and blur in the rooster tails.

Thanks guys..Matt ya when its head on shot I usually have fast shutter..Side pan shots I slow it down under 200 or so..The way the bright sun was I just looked for the "not so harsh" light. I got some pan motion blur shots in the gallery I think..I have so many more photos just dont feel like touching them now..Memorial day weekend is usually a tough weekend for me being in the Marines so long.

Looks like you made the right call keeping the 200! Congrats these look great.

They are all great, but in my opinion #6 (the one of Villipoto coming out of the corner) is awesome! You can just tell in that picture he is on the gas, just clutching it out of the corner perfectly! Great job!

Very cool shots, all are great. I liked the website, some familiar tracks that I have ridden before.
How was the one day format? Not sure if I like that. Morning practice and evening racing offers good lighting but in between?
I will be at Hangtown this Saturday. No Bubba has to be bad for the sport, but maybe the racing will be better.

I think the Alessi shot is the standout in this great set.

(Not to be confused with all the great Paul Alesse shots we get to see around here... )

Nice series... well done.

Nice set. Any news on Langston? Is Bubba going to run some MX this season? It's nice to see Alessi back after what happened to him last season at Red Bud.
