Dirt Bikes




These bikers are children and were racing around a track at some speed. The track is next to where I work so during my break I took a couple of shots. They seemed to be having great fun but it looked quite dangerous at times. I was really impressed how well these kids could handle their machines.

How convenient to have a great photo shot so closeby. Looks like these kids really know what they're doing to take those jumps.

Very nice action shots. Not something I'd try though!

Nice photos, but maybe is a dangerous sport, no?

Spent a lot of time at desert races in my past. Your photos are so action packed! Placing yourself in the right spots. These are the people that have no fear, they are young. Someday they will wonder how they did it, and be glad they did at the same time! Great post.

BMX racing is quite popular here in the States. I think parents who allow their children to engage in this sport are nuts! Just my opinion.

Love the "air" shots! That second one is just perfect with great colors and stop-action!
