Welcome to guybmoto.com. Mostly this is a place to store some old photos (or where I FTP new ones to companies who are interested in working with us).
If you know me, you might know I’ve been following racing in various forms for nearly 40 years, whether BMX, mountain bikes, motocross, or various other motorsports. But MX has been a constant theme throughout, and it’s the one I dig most. I attended my first race when I was probably 12 or so, back in 1970-(mumble), and was immediately hooked. The bad news was that my mom was an R.N. at an Emergency Room in my hometown, and she wasn’t a huge fan of motorcycles. I guess in a strange way it’s worked out, because I ended up on the editorial side of things, and been able to do things that I’d never have been able to do as a rider.
The first photo I ever had published (outside of a magazine that I was working for, which was almost like cheating), was a shot of Mark Barnett taken from outside the fences at an AMA National at Saddleback Park. That one ran as a full-page in Motocross Action.
Over the years I also had stints working at BMX Action magazine, as well as Super BMX and Mountain Biking. After that, I spent a few years working at Specialized Bicycles and later moved to the web editor’s spot at TransWorldMX.com.
After a good long run at VitalMX.com, I pumped the brakes on covering races every week, and I’m currently on the hunt for what’s next.
