In 2015 after wrapping up working my second full season of Supercross & Motocross for GoPro I was asked by them if I could also work the MXGP of USA at Glen Helen Raceway on September 20th.
My answer was obviously yes. One, GH is only about 45 minutes from my house & two, I wanted to capture the GoPro onboard footage you see below!
There is always a certain energy & hype (+arguments about who’s better) around the MXGP riders & the Motocross racers here in the U.S. battling it out on the same track that I didn’t want to miss.
I remember it being a typical super hot day at Glen Helen with Jessy Nelson dominating the 250 class & letting all the boys know he wasn’t taking this “off season” race lightly.
He & his teammate Shane Mcelrath both looked to be motivated to show everyone the racers here in the U.S. are the best on the planet.
Speaking of Shane, he was also on the gas with 3-2 finshes for 2nd overall. He was quickest in qualifying as well.
Jessy Found A New Level This Day!
