Bike Park Video with a Crash and Comments

This vid is short and sweet and is mostly of my friend Nila. She is a newbie to Mtn Biking and therefore a pleasure to be behind with a video camera There is a clip of me at the end on a fast single track run, but the fun is at the beginning.

Pay attention at :15 and listen very close at :30 Nila gives her thought about :15

Great video! Nila sounds like some of my friends. Those are the best kind of friends to have, not the delicate flowers that can't handle a little dirt. Way to go!

I like your raw footage too. Can't wait to see more of it, especially on a climb.

Hard to see, but there is a double gulley right there. She was riding full squish and it bucked her. Yesterday I was riding this trail and came very close to having the same happen. You can see where I bounce. Watch the rise as I pass behind the tree. Of course i have mad riding skills so i could handle it
