Some "me" time!

Search engines should have fun with that one. Anyways, a week ago I cruised up to Park City to ride some single track before the snow covers the trails up until June. I couldn't talk anyone into playing hooky with me (even though its my day off) so I went up solo. I took alot of footage that day. The video doesn't do it justice though. The leaves were completely gone in some spots and totally radical in others. I broke the video into 2 sections. I couldn't edit it all into one. So without further delayed gratification, enjoy!

Chasin Banks!

Banks and I partook in some Corner Canyon Monday night. Here I am chasin him. He left my legs out there on the side of the trail somewhere. Enjoy.

Ever had a close encounter?

No, not with an alien. I'm talking about a close encounter with an animal while riding. Even been hit by a bird while night riding? I have. Ever ran over a snake? I have. Ever had a deer or similar large animal run across the trail in front of you? I have. Not to be confused with Bear Bait. Ever been slammed into by a huge buck while riding singletrack in Africa? Didn't think so. This dude has. Watch this.

Is there anybody out there?

I snuck in a ride this morning before the downpour started. I had time this morning and I figured if I tried to wait until after work there was a good chance I wouldn't get the ride in. I was right. I saw a total of 5 people. 1 runner, 2 hikers and 2 bikers. I pretty much had Corner Canyon to myself. My current favorite trail is Ann's. I really, really like the downhill. I am also really liking the Rush trail but Ann's is pure money in either direction.

I mounted the camera on the seatpost today to try something new. It worked ok. I liked how the footage came out but the camera gets in the way even while standing. Total no-go if pedaling is required. Nonetheless the trails were sweet and the crowds were non existent. Great way to start the day. I love riding. Seriously, if you don't ride a bike, why the hell not?

Learning Curve

Try # 2 was a little more successful. Rotated the lens and presto, no skinny video. Although, I wouldn't mind a little slimming affect these days. Here's a little video of Upper Rush. Still working on my editing skills. Its a work in progress. Enjoy a little "roll the bones". Really loving the new Rush additions this year.

First timer

I got this fancy helmet cam off last week. I have always wanted one and when they dropped the price in half, I couldn't pass it up. Here is my first attempt. Im a rookie at this, hopefully I get better. Cam position seems good, footage came out skinny when I rotated it. Nonetheless, here is my first video. Its a shorty. Basically the downhill section from Clarks to Canyon Hollow. Enjoy.
