    Good job! Video Clip of Downhill Race in Long Gully, New Zealand

    Here's a 4 minute clip showing action from a round of the NZ DH Nationals held at Long Gully earlier in the year. Pity the wind was up so people couldn't go large on the jumps - but there's some good action and a couple of bails.

    Speaking of bails here's a small clip from another camera showing a nasty crash in the "Pig Chute"

    Good stuff!

    That was a good video. The best part was when the guy couldnt get his bike out of the bushes.
    FVCK YOU

    Damn that looks like a fun course. That chute looks like my kinda steeze.

    Is the pinner jumping from over the whole hill John Kirkaldie(sp)?

    Yeah - John is the guy in the Maxxis top who nails the whole section. Long Gully is his "backyard" so he's scary fast on it. We helmet-cammed it before the race but the angle was a bit low so it wasn't that crash hot.

    However when Drop In came through Long Gully (filming Season 4) they had Steve Romaniuk helmetcam some of the trails on Long Gully (including this one I think.)
