Hole Shot

An important part of motocross racing is the "hole shot".  It's not important who gets off the gate first, it's who makes it up and around a corner about 100 yard out first that's "fast" and wins the "hole shot".  Making it to this point puts that person in the lead off the start but it doesn't always mean they can maintain that lead!

All of these pictures are taken literally just seconds apart and you can see how fast everything can change.  Motocross Boy is #55 and starts out second to the left...
