    Road Apple Rally

    Anyone know where I can get photos from the Road Apple Rally. The organizers have some, but none that I would want to buy. Someone said there was a photographer on the course. Since this was my first race, I'd like a photo to remind me of the pain.

    Written by the photographer above. Nice write up.

    How'd you do?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the info Greg. It's just what I was looking for. That guy has some nice pics. I did okay in the race. I had fun and finished and didn't come in last. That really is what I set out to do. Can't wait for the next one. Don't know what that will be yet. Watch out!

    Careful, racing is addicting, when you come on here looking for advice on how to do intervals and which HRM to buy I will start watching out.

    Good job on the race.

    Addict

    I think I'm already addicted, Greg. That's why I'm going to get a photo from that guy. I'll be able to look at it and see how much fun I was having every time I start to second guess myself about whether I need to enter the next race. See you at the starting line.

    Hey, cool video! Has a very wide angle look to it, making your arms seem super long.

    I've yet to do this race. Something always comes up. Maybe 2010.

    I am sure the video is great and all but I can't see it. The screen is just white and doesn't even try to load anything. This happens quite a bit with windows media player. Anyone have suggestions? I feel so illiterate sometimes.

    Dang, it is cold...19 right now. Breaking out the skis and trying to gain some weight!!

    Right click, save link to desktop, play in Media Player. I use MP Classic or download VLC.

    Great video.
    Would make a cool music video.
    Made me feel like I was riding, when you pass that guy I noticed I was giving it some body english.
    How did you mount the camera to your chest?
    Pretty good camera I would assume.
    Looks like a fun race course. Very few rocks?

    Thanks for the help Bryan. Link just didn't work for me. Now to get Win Media to play my local radio station.

    GoPro

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The camera is a GoPro 5M with 170 deg lens. For that video I was using the Chest harness mount that they sell. I watched a lot of videos and found I liked the chest mount best because it gives you an idea of whatís going on with the bike and the trail. The higher you go with the camera the more disconnected you get with the terrain. The best thing to do is move it around (seat post, handlebar, chain stay) but thatís a little hard to do when youíre racing. 170 deg lens makes the video a little fish eye looking but it also gives you the most scenery to look at and makes the camera shaking a little less noticeable. The video from the camera looks better than what you see, the software I'm using is compressing it or something (jacking it up) . The real cool thing is they just came out with a HD unitÖ Damn! Why didnít they tell me that a few months back!!!
