    my definition of All Mountain

    Here is an "all mountain" clip from Palmer Park Colorado from this weekend.



    Quality is better on the contour site (and it is working faster now)

    http://contour.com/stories/palmer-pa...ado-springs-co

    Rushed the production a bit trying to get it done before the work week. I also realized how much of a pain it is to try to compress a normally 1 hour ride into 8 minutes. I only used about 2/3 of the clips I had and only used about 2/3 of each clip. I need to start finding songs w/o lyrics.

    thanks....

    You got to love Palmer Park. Every time I head up to the Springs, that's the first stop. There some great tech stuff there. Plus its right in the middle of town.

    new video same place-very all mountain

    The guys running the Palmer Park 50 this September saw my original video posted above, liked and asked if they could link it through their website even though it didn't follow their route very well. I obliged but for fun, I downloaded their map and spent a hot Saturday and Sunday shooting video in line with the race route.
    While not all inclusive of their route...that would be a very long video, I included a lot of the fun obstacles, locations. It's longer than I would normally put together but there is a lot of fun stuff in Palmer and this should be a very interesting race.
    Regardless, very "all mountain" for a race IMHO...they be some sick puppies!

    Here it is:

    That vid is fantastic!! As I do not have the equipment, but would love to show you the kind of trails round my home in Spain, found this (though its a bit jumpy and no where near as well done as your vid!)

    A lot of people I know think they're too cool to ride Palmer. This video shows them why they are wrong. It's got everything you could want. It's like Moab in a very miniature scale.

    Anyway, for those who don't live here and don't know, this is only a small offering here in The Springs-- a city park in the middle of town. We've got a lot of great riding here! I feel pretty lucky to read others raving about it.

    cool video and it kinda makes me want to make the drive out to front rangia. However,why do you go AROUND the obstacles/steps at the beginning?!!?!? That will only make the trail wider and negate any steps put in. Sorry to get all internet toughguy but I always ask that question when I see people on the trails do that.

    Yeah, Palmer is fun. It's a great winter riding spot too. Here's a vid shot in the dead of winter. Nice mix of snow, and dry dirt:

    I searched out the toughest lines I could find out there. There's some good stuff out there!

    Most people think CO riders have to hang up the bikes in the winter. Palmer is just one low elevation winter spot we have to chose from.

    I don't know Brian (the guy who did the video), so I really can't speak for him, but I usually ride down those steps (he's going up). The grade is a lot steeper than if looks in the video, and the steps are much bigger than they look in the video, too. (The first couple going up, anyway) In fact, the little rock garden he stops on shortly after those steps looks flat on video, but I can assure you it is not -- it's pretty steep. Short, but steep. It's a blast to ride down.

    That's not to say a guy couldn't do them, but my guess is that he's just taking the path of least resistance on a fairly enduring, steep climb. Watching the rest of this video, I don't think it's a lack of technical skill on his part.

    Nice mix of viewpoint in this video, and Show Me how to LIve is one of the tracks I run when I'm doing my local training loop to work out, so watching a video to it made it even more personalized. Cool.

    Man I miss that place. I learned to ride a mountain bike at that park, and 16 years later, I'd love to take it on again.

    Damn. I need to get down there. I ride all over the front range but have yet to get down there. I live in the Denver area.
    Gotta get up to get down.

    ahh...thanks for the nice words!
    My question is who puts those damm steps in....why not put in an escalator and a moving walkway on the trails. lol

    no worries. The first vid was from jan/feb timeframe, the second one I just did was this summer. I run with a pryme AL fullface for the face view shots and even though it's vented, I was still dying. The FF helmet is more stable so I end up packing two helmets around and swapping back and forth.

    ALL the way down the MOUNTAIN

    I'll just add to my own thread.
    My wife hiked up pikes peak, I met her at the top, handed off the truck keys and down I went.
    14,100-7,000ish in 13 mile, about a mile of HAB at the top, 1 crushed R. derailleur, little bit of walking where I should have been peddling, 2 sore arms, 1 sore back from always pointing straight down.
    enjoy:
