I put together this compilation from 2011. (Holy S##T, I had a whole year of raw footage to sift through!) I know the riding can't compete with the young riders, but I guess it's not too shabby for a senior citizen, haha!
This a video I just made of me riding a trail called "Mountain Goat". There's an infamous section known as the "Waterfall", which is like a rampaging river of rock! The layout of this "Waterfall" section made of pure rock is so varied, and there's so many backward facing outcroppings, and deep little depressions between the swirling, undulated rocky surface, that they tend to suck your wheel in and spit you back out like a watermelon seed, lol!
So I shot this footage on Tuesday, 3/6/12, which includes several vantage points and filming methods, from tripod to pov to my "uni-cable-cam". And for the first time in years, I took the added precaution of wearing elbow guards and ankle braces, just in case I fell...and I fell a LOT while making this, lol! Still no broken bones knock wood!
Epic four hour MUni at Simi Valley's "Hummingbird" trail on 11/26/11. Super steep, technical and rocky, and since my magura was left at home, I had to ride my 24 MUni brakeless! But it was nice to get back to some real MUni with my trusty KH 24 workhorse, which is really the only one of my unis I would even think of doing a 5 foot drop with!
I was joined by local rider Will Kalman. (Namlak) He's been riding about a year now, and this was his first real ride on technical terrain, and he did a great job. Some good bails at the end, including my big boulder drop outtakes. Hope you enjoy!
Here's a "retro" video from 2007, when I was still riding my UDC brand "radial" 36er, with a T-7. Got a lot of miles out of it. Youtube had muted the original video, so the audio was also lost. I found the raw footage and so I re-edited it with restored sound, so watch for the bit at the end, "will unicycle for food".
