 Dude, this is one of the best cinematography and music backed short vids I've seen! Damn, I just started thinking about creating a video of my own and this is inspiring!!! Great job guys!!!

 o0vogx0oRomain - Damn - I had no idea that happened - I was watching the race just up the road from there (about 4 km from the finish line). The main trail down from the top of Le Cret du Chatillon does traverse the main road - was this jump near that part, of further up ? Semnoz is just incredible...it's a bit like some of my local woodland hills, with little secret paths everywhere, but the whole forest is about 1000 times larger than what I've got here !! I'll be back there in August for a couple of weeks - can't wait....

 Feels like we have broken the planet and now it is sick and will only get sicker. . We have drought in Australia, California, etc., and many other places are getting more than usual snow and rain. Then there is the whole polar vortex thing... The new normal, but not normal, and only getting worse.

 Kinda hard to get behind having too much rain/snow. There are cities close by me that might run out of water to drink this summer. Things are definitely out of balance, in more ways than one. I'll send the sun your way, you guys sent me and other parched ones juicy clouds. Sweet vid by the way!

 Wicked edit and riding, roll on summer here.

 Totally agree - please roll on 'dry and dusty' weather - that's what my 'Californian designed' bikes are made for Wink At least for the last few winters we had some proper snow, but this year is just wind and rain and shit. The only +ve so far is that there's been no need for the council to put salt on the roads (yet) so I don't have to worry about hosing the bike down every time I get back from work. The wind today at 6:00PM was hysterical up in the NW.
