Video: Sam Blenkinsop's POV Run from the Crankworx Innsbruck Downhill Track

Jun 18, 2021
by Ed Spratt  

Sam Blenkinsop takes a fast run of the downhill course for Crankworx Innsbruck. The track was looking dry but after a huge rainstorm today and with more rain predicted for the weekend we will most likely be getting some tricky conditions for Sunday's racing.

 That's some very stabilized, very compressed video haha. GoPro effect seems maximum here. It does give an idea of the trial though.

 The video being compressed is due to most likely his setting on the GoPro being on "Standard" bitrate and not on "High" also when he exported the video he needs to set the variable bit rate higher on top of saving it has an HVAC instead of H.264 Smile

 @Remonster: Thanks! I think Sam uses the GoPro mainly to review, learn, and memorize the track so no real benefit to making it super high quality

 @LiquidSpin: For sure. I'm bet they have a track walk video where they get some detailed views of the terrain.

 @185cm79kg18cm: That was wild. Either he has committed the location of every root to memory or hes just not concerned with washing out on one at that speed.

 Imagine this track when it’s wet, mud and roots all over…but this weekend it’s forecasted 32 C so we can expect it gettin dusty.

 DH with Enduro sections and it looks worked and tough. Lots of places to eat dirt. The sound of the new camera is cool
