An even 10 photographers braved the flying dirt to get close to the motocross action at the AV Motoplex.  This was a practice day, so the riders weren't pushing as hard as if it had been a competition, but nevertheless there were plenty of riders flying through the air and sliding around the turns.

Sue handed out a tip sheet with helpful tips for shooting action, and we all got some good shots using the panning and stop-action methods.

Once we assembled at around 7:30am, we signed the liability waivers, and headed into the track area.  They were watering the track to keep the dust down, and with the cloud cover it took a while for the sun to come out and dry the track enough for the riders to start really riding.  After 9:00 or so, the pace picked up and some of them really started flying.

Thanks to Sue & Arliss for leading this trip.  We had so much fun that this "short shoot" extended over several hours.

Check out some of the results in the gallery.
