By Jimbob
The off road sport of Motocross forms the roots of the Bolddog Extreme Sports Company. All the riders in the Bolddog Lings Freestyle Team come from a motocross racing background, accumulating many years of experience.

Motocross is a very demanding sport both mentally and physically, and often people make the mistake of thinking its just a case of buying a bike then going to a track and winding open the throttle This is definitely not the case!! !!!! DONT TRY THIS AT HOME!!!!

Comments and critiques are most welcome; thanks for stopping by to view this photo.

Good timing and right to keep an element of "earth" in the bottom of the shot to give it persepctive. have you tried cropping that out though and seeing what that looked like?? Nice one.

Physically demanding too, these guys often ride 20 minutes + 2 laps, most people would be hard pressed to manage 2 laps. good well timed shot.
