    Chasing Greatness (riding with ACC and Lopes)

    Earlier this spring Ibis presented me with the opportunity to go to California and ride with Brian Lopes and Anne Caroline Chausson. As a lifelong mountain biker, this was... way beyond words. For a week straight I got properly schooled on line choice, braking, and cornering. Now that it's mid summer, the recent wounds on my elbows indicate that I may need a few refresher lessons...so I've been going back and rewatching my GoPro footage from the trip. The following 4 minutes were captured from 5+ days of riding behind those two. Hope you enjoy it!

    ha! They make it look easy. I cut out the falls I took trying to keep pace with them! Quite a few times, especially in Laguna, I'd be hauling ass (in my own mind) and then all of a sudden they're gone...and I'd be left laughing in their dust. Around 3:37 in the video is an excellent example of that.

    Thanks for posting the video Andrew.

    Had a chance to ride Lithium this summer (like everything about that vid) and it makes me respect you all the more, not only for the mad skills, but your generosity in sharing with the mtb community......and the backcountry ski vid's too....geeze!!!

    Thanks for the awesome videos man. Though I "thought" I was a pretty good rider until watching the three of you.

    Great job!
