Added a comment about video Brutal Bootleg Canyon - Reaper Madness DH Track with Steve Wentz 3/28/2017 8:51 AM

we used a gopro hero 4 black and evo gimbal. ironically the gopro 5 black doesn't work well w/ the gimbal b/c of motor noise. you have to go load old software on the gopro 5 to basically trick it from using all the speakers (one of the speakers sits right where the gimbal motor is), hence running the 4.

Added a new video Downhill Bikes Braking - Bootleg Canyon 3/26/2017 5:19 PM

DH bikes take a lot of abuse and have to perform under a variety of conditions. One of those conditions is hard braking in rough terrain. Bootleg Canyon has a really good section of trail to observe this in action. There's a steep, fast section that leads into a hard, bermed right turn. Over the years the track has been eroded away and braking bumps have turned into braking drops but the lines constantly evolve and it's an exciting section of track to see the bikes work. Watch as some of the fastest racers at Reaper Madness attack the section. (If you don't know the difference between breaking and braking, you may have thought this was all about carnage, LOL

The rocks are sharp, the tech is legit and the g-outs will pull your fillings out. Steve Wentz takes your for a full lap of the 2017 Reaper Madness Downhill course at Bootleg Canyon in Boulder City, Nevada. The trails are Armaggedon to Snake Back. The DH race is on Sunday, March 26th and there's a strong field of amateurs and professionals participating in this annual staple of DH racing in the U.S. Pssst...we got a gimbal.

Liked a comment on the item EWS Rotorua Stage 4 with Sven Martin 3/24/2017 5:15 PM

Clearly Chris Ball is on a 29er pulling away from Sven. btw I had no problem with the camera angle, I guess some people just have a bad habit of looking at a front tire
