    Noble Canyon GoPro Videos from March 3

    Edit2: Now in 1080p Noble Canyon March 3 2013 1080p - YouTube

    Edit: Thanks for the comments, here is a single clip with my favorite sections: Noble Canyon March 3 GoPro - YouTube

    I rode Noble last weekend and took my GoPro along for the first time. Not sure how much I like the chest angle, but here are the clips in chronological order (unedited so some sections are more exciting than others). Had a nice wreck near the middle of the ride but overall the trail was in good shape and we had a blast. Can't wait to get out there again.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlQyS-a8oYsfmt=18 (wrecked at the end of this one)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2EAAxGOvkQfmt=18 (skip to :30 when riding starts)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7AjA1M8eksfmt=18 (1:00-2:00 is one of my fav parts of the ride, what is this called?)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UhnF093JpS8fmt=18 (at :30 I hit a creek and the rest is hike-a-bike/boring)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shOKA-fayLwfmt=18 (this is a slower section, not sure why I taped it)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4mzlpJL6R94fmt=18
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xphJXEfgFsMfmt=18 (This section is getting pretty bumpy, caught up to a dude on a sweet Transition fixing a flat at the end)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OR5AI5OpuOEfmt=18 (Loved this section!)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAluKZNeq6cfmt=18 (This section was fun as well, last minute is climbing)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoSJYZ4bnhwfmt=18
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Sr1qxOUg_sfmt=18 (last section ending at the road, we were a bit surprised at how far we had to road ride to get to the car in Pine Valley but it wasn't terrible)

    If anyone can tell me the different names of the sections of trail in the videos that would be helpful.

    The sounds is pretty awful and I was not impressed with the quality of the video when uploaded to youtube (I shot it in 1920x1440/48fps and I think because it was 4:3 it uploaded smaller than if I had shot in 1080p mode, anyone have any tips for better quality uploads? Vimeo?)

    You missed the "widow maker" in part 6 and rode the forest service constructed go around (with the switchback) instead. You cleaned "stairway to hell" in part 14-good job! Instead of taking the bail out to the road, you could have continued on Noble Canyon Trail with a mile and a half climb culmnating with a nice one mile technical descent.

    I kinda like the chest cam setup, makes one feel more involved with the ride. However one of my favorite film styles is the follow me filming so you watch the guy behind you hitting all the drops and such.

    Now it is just time to edit those clips up into a nice video highlighting all the best parts.

    Cool man, thanks for sharing. I haven't ridden Noble yet but I've been thinking that it's about time. This definitely makes me want to go hit it. Hopefully the weather will clear up and the trails will be good to go by next weekend. It's probably a pretty tough climb from Pine Valley to the top, isn't it?

    Nice riding! In part 6, from 1-2 minutes that's Barney Rubble, with a sick roller on the right side at 2:04--one of Aguaholic's creations I'm pretty sure (one of many!).

    Why?

    Because we like the taste of freedom; because we like the smell of danger. ~ E. Abbey

    Sounds like we need a tour guide next time so we don't miss out on parts of the ride. Added this link Noble Canyon March 3 GoPro - YouTube to the original post
