    Nice video. I love that place.

    Pro Tip: You dove too early into the flying effort. Maybe it was because you were being cautious because of the guy in front of you on the track who was wandering about. Here's how to do it ideally:

    Please tell me your next video will be a match sprint with that guy?

    Oh and nice work, what did you use to keep the camera stable?

    Do rhinestones have some kind of aero benefit? Like the dimples on a golf ball maybe?

    If they do, I think his fat gut hangin out the front will counter it. I hope he doesn't wear rhinestone speedos at the beach.

    I wasn't sure what the guy in front of me was going to do so I played it safe.

    He pulled off the front in which I assumed he may rotate and go in back.
    Instead he pulled and stayed high so I assumed he might do a flyer as well.
    But he went back to the blue line and slowed down so it was possible he was simply going to get off the track.
    By that time it was too late he was in the spot I wanted to go through. I didn't give my self enough running room.

    I'm using the GoPro Bike Mount and place it beneath the stem:

    Thanks. I'm actually picking up a go-pro soon to film some racing this season.

    a) Did anyone else hear him clipping in at the start?

    b) not-a-pro-but-still-useful-tip: Gloves! The old guy who runs the lessons at my track explained how hard it is to use the washroom when you have no skin on your hands. not something I want to test.
