Red Bull Moto X

This weekend was a busy one. I was planning on just hanging out and not doing much on Saturday, but I got a call to photograph the Red Bull Moto X team doing their exhibition. Turns out it was on the Parkway in front of the Art Museum. They did two shows while I was there. The first was shot from the ground near their ramps, the second from the roof of their RV which made for a really great angle with the museum and loads of people in the background. Mazur was there shooting skateboarding. He actually nailed a few shots of the skaters hitting a barrier while the mx bikes were overhead. The riders, Jeff Tilton, Miles Richmond and Tommy Clowers were really good and put on a great show. Tommy has actually won X Games gold a few times. Later that night, we went out in Old City to hang out with the Jeff and Miles and Keith, Mary, Mazur and his friends.
