Sazerac-Best-Rye-Gear-Patrol-970×650

We pride ourselves on a few core tenants: strong, relevant reporting, depth of knowledge in our respective fields, living the life of adventure we portray, and visually conveying stories as compellingly as they are written. This week the beauty of the images hit a cord. The work of a few men and women in our studio turns out hundreds of original images every month, but these past five days, the pixel-spectacle shined particularly bright. Enjoy. – Matthew Ankeny

A Notable Quote from the Week


“There’s always issues of cooling because the air’s thin. The brakes even cool less. Everything is maxed out going into this type of altitude. 14,110 feet — you’re required to wear oxygen in an airplane below that, so it’s a very complicated place from the car standpoint and the human standpoint.”
– Jeff Zwart
