RAW Video: Race Day at EWS Rotorua

Managed to get some video from last weeks Rotorua EWS. I'm trying to get into more "cinematic" style videos, however, the only gear I brought to Rotorua was my small mirrorless camera (and one usable hand). Thought the next best thing was some raw race clips!

Massive thanks to my riding sponsors that made this trip possible (even though I'm on the sidelines).

 Thank you very much Max for this great videos! Thats the footage we wanna see. It shows the true skills of riders not that slowmo rubbish. Gutted for your crash (or not - sorry we woudnt have this videos! Wink )! Sam Hill at 0:54!! Should we start to call him Alien?

 Maybe Sam is not the best sprinter but that was masterpiece from the Legend

 This video for me highlights what's so great about the EWS. The combination of fatigue, lack of familiarity with the trails and different riding styles mean each rider takes very different lines through each section. I find this much more interesting to watch than a lot (not all) of the WCDH races where everyone converges on the same line and the only way to tell who's fastest is by looking at the stopwatch.

 This new Sam Hill kid has some interesting lines. I think he's going places.

 At 1:37 on this spot notice that the rider on the Pole is the only one who takes the outside line. While this could be poor line choice I suspect the extreme wheelbase is cause here.....
