VIDEO SHOOT - Soquel Demo Forest

  • Jul 20, 2013 · 8:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

THIS RIDE IS NOT FOR BEGINNERS.  The technical features here are quite difficult for those that cannot ride over roots, short drops, or short steep chutes, especially since it's dusty and loose this time of year.

It's been a while since I've done a video for SJMTB and I'm just itching to capture footage. Come out and appear in a SJMTB short highlight video alongside a song track.  We will pick some good locations and some obstacles to capture footage.  Due to the fact that I will have to carry equipment, setup shots and record, the pace is going to require a lot of stops.  That means it's perfect for those that aren't in such great climbing shape.  It also means we get to session a lot of the obstacles and just fool around on it multiple times while we get the right shots.  Don't be camera shy either.  This isn't ideal for those looking for a more fast paced, fluid ride.

Bring your armor if you feel you need it depending on if you want to get jumpy on Braille.

No matter what, this ride requires a helmet and bike that's ready to ride.

The entrance to Demo Forest on Highland Way can be found here at these coordinates in case the map link does not work:[masked],[masked]

Tires roll at 8:15 am.

If you're curious of the other vids I've done, subscribe to my youtube Channel called "Fmfrequency." http://www.youtube.com/user/fmfrequency

I'm still an amateur, but I'm learning a lot about this as I go on.  A lot of other bikers are giving me great tips and input so those are greatly appreciated as well.

      I didn't see the gold helmet!?!

      July 23, 2013

    • Tim N

      no, the gold-glittered A1 got sold. Too bad, could have added a disco touch to the video.

    Hey Tim, Chris and I will be super disappointed if you don't wear that gold helmet for this ride. Nothing says bling on a biking video more than that Troy Lee A1 of yours.

      I'm buying a new TLD A1. Found a buyer for my current A1. Depending on when this guy wants my helmet, the gold flake might not make it to the ride.

      How bout sprinkiling some gold flakes on your green Remedy if you do sell the helmet?

    July 10, 2013

    • Fredric

      Don't worry it'll happen again. This ride would have been just right for you since I graduated you into intermediate. Hope you're training for those uphills bro.

    I might have to bail. I'm still waiting for PUSH to send my stuff which they said would be tomorrow. They're a little over their estimate apparently.

    July 10, 2013

    • Fredric

      Which fork? Are you getting that Fox 34 serviced?

      July 10, 2013

    • Chris G.

      Yup! Also got some other goodies after some good news this week so in not out of commission waiting for suspension.
