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…

Supercross rookie Austin Forkner is not an unknown name in 2017. In fact, the speedy and charismatic kid pitted under the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki awning earned the 2016 Rookie of the Year honors in the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Series and already has more fans than some of the marquee 450 riders. But he’s still a Supercross rookie, and Anaheim One was round one for him. Speed was not an issue, but unfortunately a big get off in the whoops prevented him from moving anywhere further than a still-impressive 8th place when the checkers fell. I have known Austin since he’s been on Superminis, and I’m excited to see where on the results sheet his talent brings him weekend in San Diego. I have a feeling he’ll be challenging for a win here very soon…
