Video: Finn Iles Pushing Hard at Whistler Bike Park

bigquotesWhistler Bike Park has been open for a few weeks, so it's about time I post some POV with my new GoPro Hero 8. Here's a hot lap down Schleyer and Detroit Rock City. I was doing some testing on my new Specialized Demo ahead of race season so I couldn't talk too much. Let me know what you think! Finn Iles

 Finn-- you should really mount the GoPro at or under the chin, and keep hypersmooth at "on" instead of boost. Your runs will just look a lot faster (and more realistic), like this it's in the uncanny valley.

 Can't comment on the camera settings, but I agree that the video was overly smoothed. That didn't really even look like a bike ride down a double black trail at Whistler.

 I was lucky enough to follow him down Pleney in Morzine. I kept up for 2 corners then he was gone. Rapid as you get.

 Yep, my same run GoPro footage looks a bit different, mainly much much slower...

 He’s 20 years old. He’s past his teenage years.

“When I was a kid” is a perfectly valid statement considering he’s been riding Whistler since he was 10.

 I don't like this GoPro anti-shaking features Smile .
"Here is gets really rocky now..." - and video is still smooth and non-shaky as he was riding on asphalt.Not saying it should be unwatchable shaky - but this is extreme in the opposite direction, it takes all the "reality" feeling out of video...

 Remember when kids were complaining that GoPro's used to be too shaky?


Good grief...


Really enjoying these POV runs! Keep them coming.

 I thought that had ridden those trails, must have been something different. That was fun. Thanks.

 Yeah those lift lines suck, mostly because the terrain is just so damn fun.

 No line at all for fitz or creek side, everyones just greedy on the A line laps.

 @Benjamin97: You probably mean garbanzo instead of fitz as fitz is the one with the 45 min line ...
