    Final XC race at Riverside this year. The black thing on the side of the head tube is my kludged-on Contour video camera. edited-down video from the race I was racing rather mellow, since I had the series win in the bag already, and ended up hanging out with a buddy for 4th/5th.

    Heyyyyyy.... your bike is not touching the ground AT ALL! Can you do that?



    If you ever want to borrow my crummy ContourHD camera to try capturing a race video, let me know.

    What? You've never encountered the HoverBike® phenomenon before? Smooths out the ride soooo much.



    Hey, you're Contour isn't crummy at all; and thanks for the offer. However, my son snagged me a GoPro from an REI scratch-n-dent sale last year and now I have all the mounts and stuff to get me up and rolling with it this season. Might try it out next weekend if the weather cooperates.

    You just use the same helmet mount and point the camera to the back. Super easy.

    ^^ Doh! Of course. How many times did you have to futz with angles (forward) before you got it dialed?

    I did a couple of test runs on the property. Dialed it in pretty quick. Field of view is pretty wide so minor fluctuations aren't obvious.

    ProGRT, Port Angeles, WA en route to 2nd place:



    Sasq (or is he a Yeti?) couldn't believe how fast Steve Smith was either . . . but he was.

    I'm sure when you were getting to the point of blowing nothing was obvious but making the pain stop...I don't know about you but after the fact I always look back at those moments and think 'why didn't I just keep going' but at the time there wasn't enough oxygen on the planet to make me take one more pedal stroke.

    ... You're going the wrong way off that jump. Or did you go off this jump backwards? Either way that is an awesome mind boggling shot haha.

    Haha - - it's a step-up; still one of the most fun jumps at Beacon, IMO.

    Raced my first XC event yesterday - brutal course with a couple of 18% climbs and sketchy loose descents (with nice cactus traps to fly into if you get off line). I'm hooked, already looking for more races to enter!
