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'm encoding a high-res MPEG 2 file for download now :)

Talk about hard pack... sheez. Should have seen it when they were done prepping it :) ...

Yeah, I'll have to work on mounting the cam backwards so we can see you ride.

uh... it's too dark to video in the woods? My bars are too wide? :scream: The dog ate the tape? Yeah, that's it; the dog. I'll see if I can hook-up Offroadr. He actually like the woods. :D

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)

Yup, it was hard pack for sure. But :)
During DirtWeek, they groom it to perfection (twice). It's a great track. Jumps (doubles, triples, tables), but not SX, 3 whoop sections, sweepers, it's all there.
