    Wow. Impressively filmed but needs more shots of riding, less nature! Cool none the less.

    It's not like the world suddenly turns into flat concrete, raw sewage and fist pumping as soon as you hit the eastern edge of Pennsylvania or the southern edge of upstate New York.....


    Great video. A little bit more riding would definitely be the only criticism, but it's really refreshing to see that kind of production quality in a cross country video again.

    My guess is that you were trying to capture not only the ride but the feel/vibe of the day and I say you nailed it. Great video and it’s clips like this that inspire me to do more with mine and try new things.

    Thanks,
    Really nice.

    WOW! I am sure some of the professional video people can find fault, but damn, as a casual observer, that looks like pro quality to me. That wasn't done on iMovie! Nice job.

    Awesome clip with great nature shots. My only complaint would be the discarded Bontrager CO2 canister. I wish people would take their GU packets and other trash out with them

    Kittatiny is fun but small park that is good for people new to riding through intermediate. There are numerous larger and more challenging parks in that area. North Jersey actually has some seriously awesome trails.

    Was this after the race cleanup? I would be surprised as Team Bulldog is normally very good at taking care of race debris during thier post race cleanup. Just sayin...

    I was not in anyway critisizing the race organizers. They should not need to clean up after the racers, only maybe the course markers. I was merely noting that for a group of people fighting for access and claiming to be environmentally friendly, there are those among us that still leave trash like this behind. There is no blaming a co2 cartridge on other user groups

    I figured the CO2 cartridge was placed there for some effect for the shot.

    If you are referring to after races, that's another matter.

    I rode NJ trials for about five years, and have ridden all over the northeast. NJ trails have no more garbage from riders than others. I noticed more hiking leftovers myself. Well, less hikers, and more day walker garbage (i.e. empty Gatorades).

    The worst i have seen is in the Boston metro. But still not bad enough to really even make an opinion.

    I hope that is the case. It definately was a good shot, even if it was trash.

    Yes, great video. I like the perspective of nature first, racer second. I think it is pretty amazing that many bikers can be riding through the woods in a race and much of nature is doing it's usual thing. Sometimes we have less of an impact than we think. I was racing in that race several years ago when I came across a large bear standing in the trail, and had to wait for a minute for it to move off. If you ask me, it is a pretty cool to be able to experience this kind of nature first hand. The video reminds me of that.

    I think it's racing at Kittatinny that I've come closest to a bear while racing a couple of years ago, it was about 8 ft away from the trail as I went past and we watched each other.
