Our goal at motofotos.net is to:
1. Create an exciting online community for racers to view, download, and share killer race photos.
2. Build strong relationships between racers and their local shops.
3. Provide an awesome web presence for motocross supporters.
In 2006 we started racing the WORCS races which had us traveling as far as California and Washington. The long trips kept us close as a family. We wanted to help fund some of our racing, so we started Motofotos. We love being around the race scene and Motofotos does just that, it gets us on the track and in the action. In the past, we sold photos through photoreflect but decided to try something new for 2013. We now offer free downloads of our race photos and we sell advertising on our site. We found that the value wasn't in the pictures being sold but in the returning site visits. We hope that racers and sponsors alike are happy with the new site, because we at motofotos are very excited about this new way of building our hobby.
In the '70's I watched Wide World of Sports and this extreme sport of Motocross! Since I lived 15 minutes from the Carlsbad Raceway, my interest never died. Bikes were too dangerous for the folks, so it wasn't until 1979 that I bought my first bike, a 1974 Suzuki RL 250, a trials bike, that I pretended to motocross on. After college in 1986 I raced my first and only motocross at Carlsbad, I beat the one DNF. It wasn't until ten years later, in 1996, that I raced my second MX in Saint George. I quickly learned that you can be passionate about a hobby that you really aren't that good at. Desert racing helped me raise my sons, both are way better riders than I will ever be. Traveling the states attending the WORCs races gave us lots of travel time together. Now, in my selfish, lonely Golden years, I take pictures between the Motos, rather than play Pit Dad. I haven't found a version of Dirt Bikes that I don't love, and I've never had a bike that didn't help provide great memories (including my hard to start, fickle '99 YZ 400!)
I started riding when I was five years old. We had a little track in our backyard that we would ride over and over again on our yamaha 50. We started racing about the same time my dad did, which kept us all together on the weekends. My only goal growing up was to beat my twin brother Cody. It didn't matter how well either of us did or didn't do, just as long as I was in front of him. I've had my share of injuries, broken collar bone and a broken back, but the love I have for the sport kept me racing. I now have a wife and a little boy so to ease her stress I race less, but I love coming to the track and being around the dirtbike scene.
