Okay, not in a riding sense, but in a blogging sense. I’m taking it a little easy today (cheating, if you will.) Even though I try my best to describe my racing as best I can, it’s still difficult for the layperson to understand exactly what it is I’m doing out there. Luckily, a friend of mine wore a helmet cam during the last two races to document his adventures. Since I’m not quite ready to talk about the secret adventure that Lunchbox and I took on Monday, I figured I would link up to his videos for y’all. He races in a different class than I do, but it’s pretty much the same thing. Check it out.

This one is from the first race:

This one is from the second, much muddier race, and he wore the camera backwards. It makes for an interesting perspective:

Looks like fun, huh? It was, indeed. The guy who took this video is Bart, the owner of Southpark Cycles here in Charlotte. Check out their website for some great bicycle deals, or stop in if you are in the area. I don’t normally promote any shop other than Middle Ring Cycles, but Bart does a lot for our mountain biking community here in Charlotte. So, check them out. I’ll be back tomorrow with more crap and nonsense.

Wow, those are nice vids. That was a good idea. You should do that for your next race.

I thought about doing that, but I have a ghetto helmet cam, and I don't think it would work too well. I may try it anyway.
