I’ll Make You A Star
Day three of reporting on the Urban Assault Ride, but I promise this is the last of it. It’s time for the video, because well, I’m pretty much done talking about the event. I finally sat down at went through all of the footage on my GoPro, and I must say that it was a pain in the ass. After looking at almost two hours of video, I was able to edit it down to about ten minutes. I know most people don’t have an attention span that long, but I feel like I caught the most important stuff from the ride, uh, I mean race. I couldn’t get it any shorter than that.
I covered most of the route, and all of the checkpoints. I’m no Steven Spielberg, but I think it came out okay. I worked hard on the editing, but that doesn’t mean it’s a blockbuster.
If you look closely, you’ll see Dicky, Little Miss Sunshine, and Lunchbox (and of course my teammate the Dirty Party Cycle.) If you’re not one of the people I mentioned and you participated in the ride, you still might see yourself in there too. I’ll make you famous on the Internets.
Watch it now:
By the way, we ended up 34th out of close to 100 teams in our class. Not to shabby for a couple of mountain bikers that don’t know the big city all that well. I wish next year would hurry up and get here so we can do it again.
You will have to wait too. I have the next two days off, so that means no blogging. Maybe Mr. Shepherd will step in and catch us up with his racing adventures down in the Sunshine State, or maybe he won’t. Otherwise, I’ll be back here on Monday. See y’all then.
