At Steel City 1995, Ryan Hughes entered the final moto of the 125cc AMA National Motocross Championship tied in points with Steve Lamson. They both rode the moto of their lives but Lamson won and Hughes lost. The title was gone either way but Hughes became legend when his chain broke with 250 feet to go and he pushed his bike uphill to the finish.
March of the Ryno is another trifecta of talent. This illustration combines the creative artwork of Tim Glasspool, the legend of Ryan Hughes and the foresight and expertise of Chris Hultner, who recognized what was happening and ran to capture one of the most iconic photographs in motocross history.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Tim Glasspool shared an Italjet 50 with his brother before getting the best gift of all: his very own 1989 KX60. Motocross in 1980s England hooked him. When he wasn’t drawing sharks, he rifled through motorcycle brochures and magazines to find inspiration for illustrations. His school books were covered in motocross sketches. He didn’t win any national championships (or Grand Prix events) but he found a calling in graphic design.
Inspired by mid-century European racing event posters, Glasspool applied his love for motocross and eye for design to create his own series of prints based on well-known motocross events.
