    Well, not as fast as Pinkbike Dowst, that's for sure. Yeah, I came off hard, lost a shoe and my helmet cos I didn't strap it on. But somehow I didn't hurt myself at all, yay! (x10)!

    great video, nice framing and riding!

    looks like the south coast or are you down in VIC?
    I keep telling the wife I want to stay in the states for the work but really it is the east coast mtn biking however you give me hope. All the other stuff I had seen was pallet jump ghetto at oxford falls or full on tracks used for racing.

    The scene is getting big here, I'm near Wollongong, there are at least 3 good trail areas around here. Most runs are 2- 4 minutes. Good crews of riders too for the most part.

    I agree. I sometimes ride my hardtail down rock gardens for a bit of a challenge.

    Of course you could, you can ride a hardtail anywhere, Bro. It might feel a little bumpier, thats all.

    Careful mate, I have a degree in Botany.... don't get me started.....

    Quick explanation is there are no deciduous forests in Australia as there ae in the US. Many trees are seasonally deciduous but only according to their own patterns, and not en masse in Autumn.

    Lol, yes well he trees at our place seem to be dropping leaves all the time (Jarrah & Marri - not that I know the diffference except one has red colured wood when you cut it), but yes you'll never see them without green ones on the branches.

    Are all you US guys going to watch the movie This Is Australia?

    It seems that no one noticed that the video was "self-filmed" in that you put your camera on a tripod and then hiked up the hill and made a pass or two (which can take a lot of time and effort) and then edited massive amounts of footage into a little 2 minute video.

    Great work!

    Not only do you have to be a good rider, but good at setting up the camera, camera angles and lining up shots, etc., but you also have to know how to capture and edit video footage.

    I'm guessing you might have spent 20 hours or more before all the riding, shooting, capturing video and editing was done.

    An then to have someone post up a 2 word comment like "nice vid" hardly seems to do the efforts you have gone through justice.

    Hi Folks,

    General Havoc, I agreee with you in that this is professional level work…..major skills in all areas from riding to filming to editing to choice of music to work ethic!

    Congratulations on producing a wonderful piece!!!

    Michael
    If you can't keep the rubber side down......at least smile for the camera!

    Geez,
    Thanks guys. I am working on making my vids a bit more "watchable", I reckon I've improved a lot since I started 6 moonths ago (same time I started riding DH), but I would hesitate to call my filming and editing professional quality. It's about 8 hours from riding to publishing the vid.

    It is good to hear that some people enjoy watching them, because I enjoy making them, and am self-taught so pretty unsure about how to get them to come out as a quality production. I wish I owned a camera which didn't go blurry when I rode past at speed though!
