How 'bout an End of 2012 Video Thread? This last year was a great year for riding. Over the last few years, we've had a number of new trails thanks to the hard work of many people. Duthie is in the completed phase, there are new trails at Tiger (jaw dropping that this happened!), we have a new bike park at Stevens, and there's even more good dirt on the way. This summer saw great riding all over the state. There is much to celebrate and document.
C'mon, I saw tons of people rocking helmet and action cams this past year, so I know there's some amazing footage out there waiting to be seen. We don't have to be super heroes, just normal peeps shooting and showcasing the trails we ride and love.
I'll get it started. Not the most exciting edit, but a raw footage run down Slingshot Wookie at Stevens Pass Bike Park.

Sweet video! Love the tour - makes me remember all my great rides from the year while envying yours at the same time. :-)
Please tell me you're going to enter it in the upcoming contest...Deadline for video submissions is this Friday, and I've only got one entry so far - which makes winning one of the prizes way too easy (loads of photos have been entered though!).
You can use drop box or have them download the source directly from Vimeo but I'm unsure if the file from vimeo available for download is the orignal source file. Even if it is the original source file, I would feel uncomfortable using the downloaded file from Vimeo as a source file.
It's not from the end of 2012 but from last Tuesday night riding session on ATM at Summit Ridge Freeride Park. Just thought I'd share a quick video edit from that night. I shot for a couple of hrs and basically through it all on a timeline and it turned out kinda fun.
