I was at Crankworx this year for a couple days of riding. I was testing out my Follow-Cam and bumped into Shaums March and he was curious to see what the footage looked like after seeing me ride by in the park. I showed him the footage and I convinced him to give it a go.

The video below is Shaums doing a run of Dirt Merchant following a 13 year old ripper named Blaze.

That is awesome, loving the angle! Shaums seems like such a nice guy, and Blaze is a very promising young racer! (just want to point out that blaze borrowed my bike (as in vid) for a few days to race canadian open on it… it was a bit big for him, but he still ripps).

Very awsome; both Shaums and Blaze get HUGE air on some of those jumps!

This is the 3rd iteration of my design with some tweaks for additional stability. I figure if it can survive Whistler, it can survive almost anywhere. This was filmed with my TS-1.

I agree. Lock that design up and market it Dean. Great demo video you got there as well, Shaums might want that for his coaching. :)

hol-ee shit but that's a big hole :eek:

This. And if you want, I give you permission to use the Rio video for the marketing campaign. I'll just need a small fee.
