New Toys

video

So my mom bought me a little "action" camera for xmas. This was the absolute first time I used it. Sorry about the image quality, the bar mount for the thing isn't so hot. Next time I'll try the helmet mount.

Oh, the guy in front of me is Mark Nielson. He ended up passing the on coming car on the far left shoulder.... Yikes! He was having front brake technical issues.

Okay, I know it looks ugly, as far as what happened, but we see this thing all the time in the Tours on OLN/Vs it's just that the truck wouldn't have been there.
I'm alright...

Hey Chris, did you go over the center line?

The video looks like it, but the wobble and angle may be fooling me.

Now you know why I never follow Mark's line...

that's one way to keep your heart rate high on the descents!

I actually locked up my back wheel and crossed the yellow line (just a little) too. It's not that we where going to fast, but Mark never set up for the turn. When you're behind so much man, you kind of expect a little clue that a 90 degree turn is coming up. I guess I was just fixated on that fine a$$.

Whoa?!
I never thought that the comments section were going to head in this direction.
New bike coming this Friday, I'll be descending like a pro again.
Except the pros we see riding off past the guardrails.

Mark out!
