    XC night race video from Finland

    Here is link to video I shot during short XC night race.
    Race time was +40 minutes / 5 laps.
    Video is edited from first lap. Complete lap was about 8minutes and 2,7km.
    Average speed 20km/h and max speed 49km/h.
    I won the race and my average heart rate was 180.

    Lights used: Lupine Wilma 5 on handlebar and Petzl Utlra Wide on helmet.

    Cue003: Yes it is old Wilma 5 with 920 lumens.

    Roadrider1: Thanks, but it was only small race. Video would be much more interesting if someone was riding front of me. And yes lights worked very well, I had more than enough light. Normally I have only Wilma and I keep it on my helmet. This time I borrowed Petzl from my friend.

    Emike: Camera is new GoPro Hero2 HD with chest mount harness. First time in use...
    Friend bought it from Interbike with very cheap price.

    Nice vedio. I guess I might get lost if riding in such woods.
    By the way, don't you think your light is not floody enough?

    Most videos of lights at night don't show the floodiness very well and the lights end up looking like tight spot lights. I'm sure there was a lot more light to the eye then you see in the video.

    This is the first night racing video I've ever seen... and my first impression is, "omgz." Nicely done!

    That's true and as I wrote earlier, I had more than enough light.
