Looking Back At 2013 With Scott Jones, Part 1: Shots In The Dark

Marc Marquez, on the grid at Qatar. Did he expect to be champion by the end of the year?

Jorge Lorenzo's second title defense would be tougher than he expected

All smiles at Qatar, but by season's end, Valentino Rossi would have ditched Jeremy Burgess

The first Moto2 race of the season, and Pol Espargaro had already signed a contract for MotoGP

Brother Aleix would be the best CRT rider by a long way. That would prove to be an expensive mistake

They see him rollin', he's Hayden

Moto3 would provide great racing once again, but only three men would dominate

Burn baby burn

Bradley Smith had an impressive rookie year, though overshadowed by Marc Marquez

Stefan Bradl, one wheel only

Man, that shot is perfect in a number of ways. Bike racing can be art when an artist knows how/when/where to capture it. Beautiful.

and if you really like it, contact Scott. I have his limited series 'elbow down' and 'first in flight' on my wall at work. Even the plebs who use 4 wheels instead of 2 can't believe the shots.

Shots 1-3 are MAGIC, telling the story in a way that still photos can really do it justice. The facial expressions are perfect (look at JL99's crew). The lighting and contrast are brilliant. Very moving, top notch...thanks a TON!
