James Stewart had a knack for doing the impossible and the way he jumped LaRocco's Leap at Red Bud in 2002 is proof.
LaRocco's Leap marks the third installment of the We Went Fast artwork series. This illustration combines the creative artwork of Tim Glasspool, the legendary talent of Stewart and the keen eye of Jeff Kardas who, in July 2002, made a name for himself among the motocross photohounds.
Read the story behind the original photo here. On the weekend of July 6-7, 2002, 16 year old rookie James Stewart came into the Red Bud Motocross National with a five point lead over Chad Reed.

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. He covered his school books 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.
