Dirty Kanza Week - I Ride For Her

In 2014, I first witnessed the spectacular finish line of the Dirty Kanza 200. I was shooting still photographs throughout that day and night, and found the finish line to be particularly magical. 

It was a spectacular finish because of the raw emotion that poured forth from all the people making up that multiple city block long finish line. Spectators, event staff, and riders...everyone was contributing to the experience. 

Congratulations, hugs, tears...personal discovery and reward...it was all out there, smacking me right in the face.

I came back to the office with my photographs and said to the rock solid crew that make up our small Salsa marketing team, "We are making a film there next year. I don't know what it will be, but I know that the finish will be the most important part of it."

A year later, the crew shot it, and in March of 2016 we released it. I'm as proud of it today, as I was then. I hope you enjoy "I Ride For Her."

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
