XDL Sportbike Championship: Nashville Superspeedway

by on Jun.11, 2011, under Work

This weekend I traveled up north to shoot more freestyle motorcycle battles for XDL at the Nashville Superspeedway. I got in on Thursday night and went directly from my hotel to a bike night exhibition at Scoreboard Bar & Grill. It was an interesting night to say the least. They had a dance contest and the winner was a hyper midget who called himself “Lil’ Yoda.” The weather on the track the first day was almost 110 degrees. We had 3 cameras set up on opposite sides of the track shooting the competition all day long. With all the crazy tricks being preformed it was amazing only one person got hurt. The most interesting event by far was “longest stoppie” wherein the rider can get up to speeds of over 130 mph and then hits the front break, riding a front wheelie for as long as possible. The winner was Jesse Toler, who managed to ride an amazing 964 foot stoppie. More information about the weekend can be found here. Above is a picture I took while the riders were practicing.

XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship

by on Mar.13, 2011, under Work


This week I headed out to Daytona International Speedway to shoot the XDL Sportbike Freestyle Championship Series season opener. This shoot was a very fun and interesting experience to say the least. Competitors came here from as far away as Japan to show their sportbike freestyle skills. A few people fell pretty hard but there weren’t any noticeable injuries. The cloudless skies and cool weather made for a great week of racing and shooting. The footage I shot will be part of Season 2 of “Inside XDL” which plays on the Versus Channel. I took the photo above during a little off time.
