 I have to be honest, the video is good but does'nt really focus on the top riders that were there that weekend-Al Bond put most of the riders to shame on his hardtail, and there were people like Sion & Jim Stock who didnt even get a single shot in the film!
well edited, but I think there was probably better footage you had that would promote the track & the local riders better (as i was one of them hahah!)

Just my oppinion.....

 To be honest I only had limited footage and you do lose footage with bad lighting and out of focus shots and badly taken shots (I am far from perfect). Every time Al Bond cam past me he got it wrong it just works that way sometimes you can only be in one position for each run down. It was also the first time I had met most of these riders so as is my way I did not judge any clips by who they were but on how the clip/riding looked.

 Great edit Ian - the locals SHOULD be proud of the recognition it will be getting Martins new track. Hopefully we can hook up with the locals in the future to do more work - just hope we are worthy enough to be in their presence. lol!

 Just re-read my previous comment, im extremely sorry if that came accross as arrigant-that was NOT my intention (english is not my strong point!), and i am pleased that the track & Martin are getting some promotion.
