For years, Lino Gonzalez has been a member of the Animal Bikes pro team, filming numerous sections for Animal's seminal videos. But he's also just as handy behind the lens of a camera. Recently, Gonzalez reached out to XGames.com with photos documenting the end of the cold weather in and around his home of New England, beginning with John Mayo.
