Mind the Gap

This weekend I attended Round 1 of the 2012/2013 FTR Motocross Series at Bostwick Creek MX Park in Green Cove Springs, Fla, just west of St. Augustine.
I arrived just after sunrise Sunday morning, having never been to the track at Bostwick, wanting to beat the early birds but, as you can see, I was late.
Early birdsPulling into the track, I ran into some old friends, feeling welcomed at once, and went to find the track owner who handed me a fluorescent orange crossing guard vest when I asked about shooting photos on the track. He looked at me cross: “Have you ever done this before?” I gave a confident nod, wanting to laugh in his face. “Yes, a few times,” I said. He told me to  introduce myself to the medic, who told me to stay away from the landings of the jumps. (Really?) Walking away, I felt overcome by barriers, but trusted in myself and trudged on for hours, driving home with more than 600 photos.
