Briarcliff MX LLAQ Gallery 2

We are happy to announce that after an extended hiatus Team OO has stepped back into action behind that trusty Nikon glass.  And I have to say, we are REALLY excited to be back out there hitting the tracks and trails with you all.  It’s been far too long… The first stop on our 2017 shoot list was Briarcliff MX for a Loretta Lynn’s Mid-East Area Qualifiers.  Loretta’s Qualifiers have always been a go-to event for us, and Briarcliff is one of our favorite tracks to shoot, so this decision was a no-brainer.  The track is tucked away in the rolling green hills of middle Ohio and the track owner Jeremy Osborne has consistently added new wrinkles to keeping it fresh.  Year after year it is one of the most popular tracks in Ohio. After the 3 hour trip down from Cleveland, I arrived to find thunder, lighting and torrential downpour.  Over the loud speaker the track announcer informed everyone that the rain delay would last until approximately 1:30pm.  Given arrival was around 11am I had a lot of time to sit in my car and listen to the 5th Wave on audiobook.  When the weather finally cleared up a rider’s meeting was held.  Everyone was informed that due to the conditions the motos would be held in a harescramble style format.  This meant that each time around the track the rider would stop, check in and have his/her number plate cleaned. As you could imagine, there were some questions and frustration from the riders and parents.  But the AMA has been consulted and this seemed to be the best option to get racing underway. What ensued was a mudfest. While day 1 was probably a bummer for some, it did make way for really nice track conditions on day…

Full Gas Sprint Enduro Rd 3 Gallery 2

Round three of the 2016 Full Gas Sprint Enduro series took place at the beautiful Boyer Farm near Romney, WV.  For the weekend the property became home to a large amount of colorful trail tape running through sweeping grasstrack, multiple hillclimbs, a rugged rock garden and high speed trail runs. The event also doubled as the East Coast AMA ISDE Qualifier for riders looking to compete on club teams at this year’s ISDE in Spain.  Because of this the 2.5 mile CrossTest and 4.5 mile EnduroTest were laid out in an ISDE style. Rain prior to the races and overcast sky left the dirt hydrated for most of Saturday’s 6 tests (3 CrossTests and 3 EnduroTests).  By Sunday the sun baked away most of the moisture leading to some epic berm blasting, and in turn, dust showers.  You know the kind where you walk back to your vehicle thinking you got a nice tan and then it wipes off. After 2 days of racing and 12 special tests, Coastal Racing/Husqvarna’s Layne Michael topped the podium with his first ever Full Gas Sprint Enduro win. Ampro Yamaha’s Daniel Milner ran approximately 43 seconds off Michael’s pace to take 2nd overall. And rounding out the podium was KR4/Husqvarna’s Thad Duvall running 21 seconds behind Milner and 1:04 behind Michael. Trailjester/KTM/Edelmann’s Josh Toth finished 4th overall and 1st in ISDE qualifying. East Coast J Day Offroad series rippas Jason Klammer and Ben Kelley finished 3rd and 4th respectively in the ISDE qualification. Overall Results: 1. Layne Michael, 33:17.8 2. Daniel Milner, 34:01.8 3. Thad DuVall, 34:22.3 4. Josh Toth, 35:00.2 5. Cory Buttrick, 36:13.9 6. Broc Hepler, 36:33.0 7. Sam Evans, 36:58.7 8. Jason Klammer, 37:38.7 9. Craig DeLong, 37:54.4 10.

Malvern MX Loretta Lynns Area Qualifier Gallery 2

Stepping out on to the track for our first shoot of the year is always an intoxicating experience.  Engines buzzing around at 360°, families huddled by their motor homes, vans or trucks prepping for their moto and the ever present, exuberant voice telling us about today’s races over the loud speaker.  In some ways it feels like a million years have passed since the last race of the prior year and others like no time has gone by at all since we all gathered under the Ohio sky. Our 2016 campaign kicked off on familiar ground with a familiar event, the Malvern Motocross Loretta Lynn’s Mid-East Area Qualifier, where young and old, man and women will do battle for their shot at qualifying for the Loretta Lynn’s Regional Qualifier.  For some this will end up being just another fun day ripping at the track.  For others this will be the first stop on the road to the hallowed Loretta Lynn Ranch to participate in the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship. You never know what kind of pranks Mother Nature is going to pull in early April in Ohio. This weekend was no exception. The air was frigid and at times the wind whipped around the hills chilling down to the bone. Some inclement weather left the earth snow covered, wet and muddy but thanks to the good people at Malvern MX the track remained in solid condition for racing. Riders traveled to Waynesburg, OH from across the continent to participate in this event. A few of the big winners include: BRANDON HARTRANFT (New Jersey) 1st/1st Open Pro Sport, 1st/1st 250A WESTEN WROZYNA (Ontario) 2nd/2nd Open Pro Sport, 2nd/2nd 250A DYLAN WALSH (Georgia) 1st/1st 250B, 1st/1st 450B, 1st/1st 450B Limited JAKE IMPENS (New Jersey) 1st/1st College (16-24) JACK…

Moto 7: The Movie Trailer

A film that rewrites the moto playbook, with the biggest jumps, the gnarliest tracks, and some of the most remote locations a motorcycle has ever touched. Experience Blake Baggett’s newly-developed El Chupacabra Ranch in Florida, one of the most gargantuan home tracks ever made, where Baggett and Ken Roczen enjoy a daily routine of riding light speed fast laps with an almost lackadaisical ease. Three miles away, Aldon Baker trains factory superstars Ryan Dungey, Marvin Musqin and Jason Anderson on a program fit for Seal Team Six. Then there’s the Smokey Mountains in Idaho, where the Sipes brothers Ryan and Justin go to feel the sweet serenity of a man, his motorcycle, and countless miles of natural single-track. All of these riders are taking moto to territories it has never seen, be that on the stopwatch or the trail map. There’s Colton Haaker, the Endurocross phenom whose bike-control and technical abilities are that of superhuman levels. Then of course, Justin Barcia, the exemplar of style on a motocross bike, the guy who defies logic and rides with an amount of panache and flamboyance that is shunned in professional motocross, yet somehow has climbed to the top of the sport. All of these riders and more make up the cast of MOTO 7, and help to make it the most ground-breaking motocross film ever. Starring: Blake Baggett, Ken Roczen, Billy Laninovich, Tom Parsons, Kris Foster, Ronnie Renner, Colton Haaker, Anthony Rodriguez, Ryan Sipes, Justin Sipes, Justin Barcia, Adam Enticknap, and more!

It’s a feeling we all relate to, but most have forgotten. Sometimes the only way to remember is to Get Lost!
