GoPro of the World clip submission

A brief section of rad in a 2500ft ride of awesomeness. Pedaling out in the dark then descending into the clouds on an early morning ride.

 Man!! All I can say is what an epic video!! At first the surreal golden sun and cloud combo caught my eye....But when I clicked play I was pleasantly surprised with the stability of the camera. Mounting the go pro to a gimbal was something I have always wondered if it would work out( my other expensive hobby is fying quad copters with gimbal mounted camera's) I'm stoked to see that you made it happen. I'd love to see a pic of your set up if you care to share. You got my vote!

 Thanks Mouser! Here's a picture from one of my first days using it" www.instagram.com/p/6LSt8zmhmv/?taken-by=courtneygski
It's made by Zhiyun Tech, and was convenient because it can attach to the GoPro pronged mounts...like the j-mount on a chesty. As you can see in the video, harder impacts overpower the motor, creating a side-bob. I've also broken two of them, but when they're working it's really dope. Not the type of thing I use every ride, but when you really want the best looking outcome, it's really impressive. Thanks for the vote!

 @op does the trail end there or does it lead to some valleys after all those lines on the ranges

 @lyrill This is a segment of the trail, near the middle. I've got a video from a few years ago that shows more or less the whole thing ("Leaf Peeping on Lithium"). There's roughly another 500 meters vertical drop left, dancing in and out of the forest. It get's more manicured lower down, but it's tough to beat some naturally rugged singletrack!
  • + 1
 the manicured were hiking trails or trees cut down for biking?

 @lyrill Lithium is a downhill specific mountain bike trail. The trail system in this area was the first user specific one on National Forest land in the US. Some trails are multi use, some horse & hiker only, and some DH riding only. I've uploaded a video that starts where this clip ends. Cheers!

 @skijunky05 good stuff good stuff, thanks for sharing! when did most of the dh trails came to form ? also i can't seem to find out where the contest page is, but I hoped you'd won
  • + 1
 The DH trails came from riders building them. Most trails built here in the last decade have been done so with recreation in mind- the real old trails generally came from hikers, hunters, and animals.

The contest page is on the Pinkbike front page- about 1/2 way down.

 @skijunky05: Im interested in getting a gimbal for my Hero 4 Session and using it on the chest mount. Im wondering tho, is this www.amazon.co.uk/Feiyu-FY-WGS-Wearable-Gimbal-Session/dp/B01CL6I2ZU/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1462193134&sr=8-4&keywords=gopro+session+gimbal
all you need? or do i need to purchase a specific chest mount or anything else? cheers

 Thanks @Ryland1300 , it was a good day to be out riding. Cheers

 So your using a go pro and the stability is coming from a mount your using? Mind letting me know what the mount is? I tried gopros on my helmet and it isn't even worth recording because he videos come out so crappy
  • + 1
 It's a zhiyun tech gimbal, off amazon. But a gimbal itself doesn't necessarily fix basic video filming issues. Helmet is the smoothest natural mount, but you've gotta make sure everything is tight and dialed. Edit footage and use the best looking parts- that's the best early step to take. Using a higher frame rate will also allow you to slow footie down which smooths things out. Film with a purpose, film a lot- and use a little.

 This is the stuff of dreams!!! Absolutely gorgeous video. One day, I hope I can get out to Wyoming and see this for myself.

 Crushing it as always. Still the best trail in the valley.

 Thanks mang! I got word that there have been some recent enhancements that we can look forward to next spring...

 Best submission. This dude could ride a bull down that mountain and hold on with a smile.

 lol, thank you! I'm honored to now be up against The Claw! Such a legend. Cheers!

 This to me is the epitome of a perfect ride! Absolutely beautiful! Good Job! I wish I knew where this was. My favorite of all the go pro submissions by far.

 Thank you! It's up here in Jackson, located on Teton Pass. I also have another video from this trail that I made a couple years ago called Leaf Peeping on Lithium. The whole area is pretty special. Thanks for the praise!

 that's freakin beautiful, and a tough trail too. Very cool stabilization. Got my vote, even against Megavalanche!
  • + 1
 Thanks dude! I'd like to experience the Megavalanche myself, but I'm happy to let Quere got that hole shot- mid pack would be skeeeetchy!

 Is this raw footage? looks totally surreal as if you are ridding through the ashy/dusty air post volcanic eruption! either way, sweet vid!!
  • + 1
 Thanks Darius! We can frequently have early morning temperature inversions, where cooler air (with more moisture) gets stuck in the valley. It was bluebird above this section, and lower down became rather wet. So, basically it's just riding into a cloud.

 The light and the combination of the cloud and the amazing stability of the camera are perfect !

 Thank you @johardy ! Cheers

 Amazing day for shooting.

 Hell yea...I wish it was easier to motivate in the dark for summer dawn patrols. An early alarm clock but at least it's warmer than for the ski version!

 Thanks for all the compliments on the video. Hope you all have a shred filled 2016! Thanks for voting in the competition!

 It's got my vote. I freaking love the Pass trails. Great video, great riding.

 Kind words- thank you @s8wood . Pass rules, no doubt

 That's an awesome video! How is the camera staying so stable?

 Thanks! I had a small electronic gimbal mounted on my GoPro chesty mount. They're kinda finicky (not what I'd want to use on every ride) but the outcome can be pretty fantastic. Glad you liked it!

 what model gimbal did you use? It's a lush video!

 Zhiyun Tech Rider Z1 off Amazon. Thank you!
