    Was the trail loose there or something? It looked like you went in slow enough to make it around that turn.

    Yeah, it was loose and I was leaning too far forward. Caused the bike to spin around. The rest of the trail was hero dirt.

    Loved the video though. Looks like a blast of a ride. What camera setup do you use?

    Looks like you must have come down right behind us this morning. Great conditions on Longhorn.

    So I have a question regarding your filming. I assume you're using a GoPr with a chest mount. How to you keep your arms from looking like you're stretch armstrong. Mine look really weird, and it kind of annoys me. Here is an example:

    Rode last night around 7:30. It was taken with a GoPro and I keep the harness low. Video is edited with Pinnacle Studio with Magic Bullet "looks" filter. Got tired of YouTube ripping my audio so I use live performance audio.

    Simple. Don't use a chest cam.

    Sorry, but the chest cam angle really disturbs me. I can't watch it because of the arms. However, I do have a suggestion:

    Crop or zoom the video in during editing. You'll accomplish two things:

    1. You'll get rid of the carnival mirror arms.
    2. It will smooth out the video a little.

    Still, overall I think helmet cam is a better view if you can hold your head still. I have been experimenting with a shoulder cam. It's taking some tweaking, but it just may be the best of both worlds.

    I prefer a first person perspective but the ideal video would have multiple angles. If I had to choose one angle, the "norwhal" cam would win hands down.
