    Another Successful Bike Trip - (video)

    A group of us (silver_slug, titusbro, SCAZ, MJRDR, Mckshred, and a few others) just got back from a great week of riding in Crested Butte, Colorado. It was beautiful up there and the views were incredible. The video below shows most of the trip. I did my best to fit 6 days of riding into 6 minutes of video. Hope you enjoy!

    Wowzers. Nice edit! The cuts were about the perfect length. Great variety with the copter shots.
    Today's the day I eat bikes.

    Great edit Bryce! The bike park was a highlight for me. We need more than one day on the lifts though. My mind is already plotting a return trip!

    Very nice video! Looks like you guys had a blast. That lifted trail looked like it had some sweet obstacles...

    That was awesome, I really like the the aerial shots and as weird as this is going to sound I like the footage of all the other stuff too. The aerial shot of the white Ridgeline driving the road was really cool. Nice wipeout on the rocks by the one guy. Looks like a great trip and thanks for sharing.

    Nice job of getting all that in 6 and a half minutes. Here is my 403 vid, ironically 6 minutes but just one trail. Way less editing too.

    That wipeout at 3:37 looks like it felt great!!
    The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

    403 was awesome! Your video gives a good feel for that trail.

    That wipeout sucked. The tires were wet and the rocks were slick so it was a bad combination. No idea where all that momentum came from either. I was going slow until I crashed.

    Having filmed and witness that crash, I was just happy to see him get up ok, because the sound of his body hitting the ground each time didn't seem like the outcome would have been good. Youth is a wonderful thing. I like the clip of us going over the logs near the top Avery.

    I'm happy I was able to get up and ride the rest of the day with only a few mechanical issues and no major body issues. The parts for my seat post came in so my bike will be back to normal soon like the crash never happened.

    I like that shot too but you can't really see the drops or tell what that section looks like from that angle.

    I took some of the floor clipping that Bryce didn't use (and some he did...) and put together my own version of the trip. In my version you can see those log drops clearer at the top of Avery (even though Shane takes them a little slower than you guys did.)

    Awesome video! I'm glad you put this together. I didn't realize how much I had to leave out.

    Avery was awesome! Probably my favorite run from top to bottom. Frequency was a close second though.
