Have you ever wanted to know what it looks like to put together a wicked run at Crankworx from the riders perspective? Inside you can hop a ride with Mike Montgomery and his GoPro as he puts together an incredible second place run.

Possibly the raddest helmet cam footage EVER!

If you've seen photos or video of Mike you'll know that his incredible second place run at Crankworx is well deserved. His riding looks as if it has been filmed at a place where gravity doesn't apply. He is always upside down, corked, and in the craziest positions so often that it makes you wonder if his entire body is double jointed! First up, watch the on-board GoPro footage of him and his podium run (but don't get too dizzy), and then check the video interview below.

 Sick footage, was a brilliant run by Mike. IMO it was the frontflip that won it for Zink, whereas MM threw a flipwhip. I'm glad some of the pro's are wearing GoPro's now, really shows how skilled they are compared to what i witness through my goggles! Especially that step down off the judges tower...on a hardtail...

 Sick Run, props to Mike....Not sure if Zinks run was better than that, but i guess thats a matter of personal opinion,...I thought MM tricked more obstacles than Zink not to mention he did it on a HT,...MAJOR PROPS

 he was amazed by the taboggan of all things?!? mind boggling run. to hear the audience from the cam makes you feel like a gladiator. i can only imagine how stoked he was to be alive at the bottom, even though it meant having that lame red bull announcer in his face saying dumb stuff.

 i thought the anouncer was from monster oh well most people wernt tricking the moustache feature so to pull off anything must have felt good

 I actually prefer Mike's run to the first place run... a little more diversity imo.

 the fat dork who uses the lame growling voice for everything was made "famous" for narrating the red bull events like rampage, etc. maybe he has a monster hat now but thats him, saying something dumb and trying to put his arm around every rider like he's starved for attention.

 question: there were gopros all over the course, did someone keep running in and turning them on and off? or did they just have big cards and filmed for the whole comp?
  • + 1
 they were probably controlled by computers

 Abe and Brad from GoPro worked their asses off every day of Crankworx. Changing out cameras, building edits, they didn't sleep at all I don't think. Ken
