Video: Kelsey Urban & Jimmy Smith Ride Picturesque Fall Time Trails

“Superior Times In Racing” is a video about just that. Watch as World Cup XC racer Kelsey Urban and multi-discipline athlete Jimmy Smith take on the Marquette Fall enduro. A race that is highlighted by the hidden gem of the city it takes place in, blazing orange foliage, a lake that is without a doubt definitely an ocean, and even a night stage.

The vibes and Super 8mm were buzzing as racing began.

Processed with VSCO with c7 preset
This is that ocean that they call Lake Superior. One of the many sights that leave visitors wanting more.

Kelsey Urban may be used to XC, but she looked right at home on the ole Stumpy Jumpy.

A little PNW vibes anyone?

Hope you enjoyed!

 The best riding in the midwest in my opinion, we have trails for everyone. Vast XC network, flow, and an insane amount of free ride trails (look up Bertha on youtube if you want to see some).

We even used to have a slopestyle competition at our local ski hill.

 What is wrong with humanity is, everyone thinks inviting hoards of people into a location because they feel its a good thing and need more traffic and trash so they can over-run what was once pristine, unique and low key; turning every sq inch of the world into a gutter filled shit hole of morons that love big crowds and lots of stupidity for their GoPro's.

 This is Jimmy Smith, not Jimmy Hill. I have no idea who Jimmy Hill is but this is definitely Jimmy Smith.

 Pretty nice scene and it looks like a solid event too, but the 8mm effects kept making me laugh at the idea of "New Age fun with a Vintage Feel!" (please watch this if you don't know the reference -

Definitely needed a post-ride swim in the lake though. Does that mean Jenny wins for the season?
