 nice filming, djjon, the panning was super smooth and he put in a good mix of stills and fisheyes, and i bet if he only did still shots you would have made a comment about how he needs more panning in the vid...

 I agree with dj-jon, cool vid and all but a few to many panning shots, use em less and they look better - creative criticism no need to fly off the handle like 'steveprice'

 Incredible video guys, got all the best aspects of Rhyd-y-Foel in there and riding was immense.

 Why was the trail flattened ? Great vid btw.
  • + 0
 Cos when they were built the land owner had moved to another country so he didn't seem to care what happened. Anyway now the castle at the bottom has been sold and started to be rebuilt as a tourist attraction.
Forestry commision came up one day and saw the large amount of rubbish down at the jumps (after endless times going round litter picking and it getting just as bad in a weekend it was given up on). They oviously decided to flatten the jumps and cut trees down over the trails to stop us going up there.
  • + 0
 sold edit. what were you using for all those pan shots? looked like i saw a few cable cams, any dollyS?

my only critique is too much use of fisheye. its meant to be used really upclose, not shots that are 40 feet away.
  • + 1
 looks like an awsum track. Flowy and smooth with nice jumps to hit. Shame its been destroyed tho Frown

Did the forestry commission destroy it?

 Very nic shots, but next time please use deinterlace filter on Your editing program. Also I have a feeling that the music is more dynamic than the video.

 ive reported the jumps been flaten to the news papers theair going to help us get back or jumps
  • + 3
 they arent our jumps, the land belongs to the castle and they have been doing it back up i guess to sell it on, the newspapers cant do anything. tbf the place was a shit hole, there was litter everywhere, maybe if we had picked up our litter they might ahve considered not leveling it but i guess we all blew it.

 Did you deinterlace it on export?
I think that's why your seeing all those little lines across it.

Awesome edit though, looks really fun. I think i've seen that track, in Earthed 4 was it?

 Almost certain that this place has never been in an Earthed (or any "proper" MTB film)! Smile

 to repetitive tricks but other than than sick vid! prob the best edit ive seen
  • + 4
 how is it to repetitive tricks....if your racing on a downhill track do you
A) perform tricks
B) go fast and perform a whip now and then

(its 'B') your hardly going to see any variety in tricks on a video like this because it wasnt made to contain tricks....
