iPhoto Gallery: Best Of The 2011 GNCC Season

For the past two seasons, I’ve traveled to every GNCC and managed to snag some epic photos with my iPhone along the way. For those of you who are friends with me on Facebook, you’ve undoubtedly seen some of the photos at some time or another. I’ve had more feedback about how I always manage to find the best stuff to take pictures of than anything else. With the popularity of that, I began doing the iPhoto galleries on this site but I’ve frequently slacked with those. Well, I’ve decided to compile some of my best photos from the 2011 season into this one gallery… Disclaimer: Some of you reading this may make a cameo or two in here, and it could very well be slightly¬†embarrassing… Enjoy.

Round 1: River Ranch – River Ranch, FL

Driving on the beach at Daytona

Making a pass on the way to the track...

Rodney Tomblin doing his best Elvis impression

The Palmetto roots section was sick!

James Stewart ate it hard at the Daytona Supercross.. That's him on the ground, and that's his bike ghosting off the next jump.

Villopoto on his way to the win!

Driving through the turn 4 tunnel.

Pitstop at the Don Garlits museum in Ocala

Round 2: The General – Washington, GA
Just as quick as the first round ends, the second one begins just a couple of days later. After hanging out in Georgia for a couple of days, it’s time for round 2.

Aonia Pass MX is sick!

Charlie Mullins was the first rider in 2011 to rock the reverse backgrounds...

Charkie Huegel shows off his new number... No homo.

Round 3: Steele Creek – Morganton, NC
By this point, I’ve been to Steele Creek more times than I can count so my eye for epicness was a little less on and I only caught a few good pics…

Evan Veness got a PRIME advertising spot!

One of the few places you can get a signal at the black hole of cell service known as Steele Creek.

Round 4: Big Buck – Union, SC

A pretty sick hillclimb was added in at Big Buck

Just a little pic of a spot I was shooting

A true mud flea!

Starting line at Big Buck

Round 5: Indy 100 – Gosport, IN
Loretta Lynn’s was originally scheduled as round 5 but hard rains ended up flooding a lot of the track. This made the new Indy 100 Round 5… and it ended up as an ATV only event when we were once again plagued with severe rains.

I feel as if just looking at this sign makes some people cringe.

The shady motel we ended up NOT staying at... I don't like diseases.

Rodney and Dan laughing about something...

Barry Hawk giving the course description...

I found a car waaayyy out in a field...

Then the rain came!

And it rained a lot.

Pretty epic...

That would be KR being pulled out by JR and Bill Allen...

Pro pits

Round 6: Rock Run – Patton, PA
After the debacles with Lorettas and Indy, things got back to normal in PA…

Good times at the Cernic's Open House

Rock Run is rock fun.. Lame saying?

Random spot I found out on the track...

People hanging out and stuff

Jen Kenyon trying to rock the open face helmet look.

The track went past an old mine shaft...

Round 7: Snowshoe – Snowshoe, WV
Ah, Snowshoe… America’s Toughest Race, the most epic race of the season.. I think the explanation can end there.

Good viability on the way up through VA

Sounds pretty safe, right?

Rolling in!

My sick ride for the weekend...

Everything starting to come together for the epic awesomeness...

Gnar

Good stuff

Brandon Bolling getting the drunks all rowdy with some horn blowing.

Courtney Allen decided that the floor was a good place for a nap...

Morning race start

Almost as soon as the race ended, it got super foggy...

It looks a little different on Monday morning...

Round 8: John Penton – Millfield, OH
The John Penton is the second oldest current GNCC event having been a part of the series since 1990…

It was a little wet early on Friday

Hilltop view

Morning Quad race carnage

The big debut of Fahringer's new smoker

Overall podium

Round 9: Unadilla – New Berlin, NY
When we returned from summer break, I spent Unadilla filling in for Hannah Reid as the announcer/podium/trophy girl… Maybe it was a little bit different.

Binghamton, NY was all flooded and stuff

Unadilla is sick!

Tuxedo brapage

Killer fro!

Bill Allen heading out to be badass and do cool stuff.

Overall podium

Round 10: Mountain Ridge – Somerset, PA

There's a couple of rocks there...

Round 11: Powerline Park – St. Clairsville, OH
I slacked big time on pics from this race…

Totally random photo

The coolest bike at the whole race

Round 12: Ironman – Crawfordsville, IN

The awesome field section

My personal favorite part, going under the bridge...

Steward Baylor riding the mechanical bull...

Bonneur taking the overall amateur

This was the now famous double header weekend!

Carnage coming!
