    Went out riding at the weekend with the lads up the forest, now im not fast on my bike by any means, but i'm getting a fuck tonne more consistent with my times. Just need a can of Man Up to actually hit the trails harder :c

    What is this actually called? Downhill offroad bike racing? Always see redbull doing this sort of stuff and it looks pretty cool

    This is more trail orientated. The forestry commission has like 3 grades for public trails, blue which are the easiest, red which can have complexity (in the video) and blacks which are generally proper downhill routes. The redbull races are done (i think) on black routes depending on location, up at Hamsterley they have a paid DH run called Decent which is what all the local pro riders use. Danny Hart whos a utter fucking beast runs it reguarly:

    Place called Bedgebury near us has an insane black route, I've nearly killed myself multiple times on it and I'd do it anytime and the drop of a hat, I might get a go pro setup going for reference, any suggestions for mounts/cameras etc?

    Chest/helmet is pretty common mounting points, gotta be careful with the chest mount if you bin it, gopros hitting you with the force of your bodyweight isn't exactly nice and could result in more injuries. The video i posted was off a chest mount with the (wifi?) wrist control.

  10. HellJack A message was delivered, and received.

    I've been offered a job.

    The fine folks at WRLH-TV in Richmond, VA have made the brilliant decision to offer me a position as their newest Master Control Operator.

    So, for the first time in my life I'll be living someplace other than Maine.

    My start date is just over 30 days from now, so I have some work to do to relocate my stupid self down there.

    Oh really? No, mister Jack, I think it is far more questionable to offer you a job of 'Master Control Operator'... Almost questionable enough for me to intriguingly start watching this TV channel to see the madness ensue. :P

    But in all seriosity, congratulations! :)

    And while I'm here - the shock, I am actually on this forum! - I suppose I could mention that the schoolyear is almost at its end. Only a thesis to hand in, in two weeks time, a random assignment in a few days, and an exam to do in four weeks or so. I easily passed the TOEFL - a very silly requisite, for we have classes in English, and even my thesis is in English - and I already passed the GMAT last year - a far, far harder test, that I passed by pure luck and the fact that I scored in the 91st percentile on English - so I'm almost all set to start with my Master's next year (well, I speak of passed, but different universities have different score requirements; mine has 91/120 for the TOEFL in total, with 22 for every individual part - I scored 115 in total - and 600 for the GMAT, for which I scored 620). And then it is off to become part of the proletariat!
