1 lap around the MX track at Casey/LTM.
They were rebuilding / changing parts of the track :( ... but I got a couple of laps in. The track is just over 2 miles long the way he's got it set-up now.

Here's a lap for those with slower connections:

Here's one for cable/dsl:

I'll have to do a special speeded-up version for Thump and TwinSpank. :D

Hopefully, next week I'll get to go back and shoot some in the woods.

Very Cool! Looks kinda like the SuperMotard MX tracks we have been riding on. You'll have to give a vid update when it's prepped.

That helmet cam will come in real handy. I will be really cool to see how I ride with that camera behind me. ;)

I think Dr Bill had the best line in a post a while back..."The dog ate my bike!" :confused:

Cool video Okie, that diesel sounds mean out on the track!

I think that video should encourage some more to sign up before the deadline hits. Come on people there's only a few days left!!!

Does anyone know if there's a way to make the little screen full size on Windows Media Player?

Very hard pack...I like the tire skidding sound coming into the corners!

Looks like a cool track, I'm impressed.

It's a little bit like the Coal Valley Illinois track, but on flatter ground. Nice long lap times (not due to your riding, Okie, but due to the length of the track)

LOL---AJ- not laughing at you, laughing with you. If I ever dreamed of flying that far, I'd be so focused on the landing that I would totally forget there was a turn coming up. Is this what happened to you, or was it just too slick to set up the turn?

Very, very cool!!! Is that "pixleness" of the video due to something you did to compress it's size or the quality of the camera? :think

Also, on the track; I have ridden a track like that in my life so it looks very flat. In the hlaf mile of the local supercross style track there are more jumps than on that whole track!!! And as an added bonus, it gets skid marks on it is sooooo hard in the summer!!!:p Man, I really wish there were no AGE requirements for Dirtweek. I might have been able to make it untill I got the dreaded news. Can the person whom brings me(if they come through) act as the guardian?
