    Pikes Peak?

    Anyone here going to see this years Race to the Clouds at Pikes Peak culminating June 26th? I think a few TWs here have ridden to the top recreationally.

    Oh yea! Team Orange.

    Great camera work.

    I wonder what tires he was running?

    He looked like a skinny praying mantis on that bike..

    Maybe. Just watched a YouTube clip from a 360 Fly and the transitions don't look as smooth as the motorcycle video but that may just be in the editing. Thanks.

    Whether Go-Pro or Fly 360, it's all about the editing after. That's absolutely not just raw running footage from beginning to end.
    It is pretty darn amazing though.

    Just looked at Chris Fillmores other videos from this event, so many on youtube. There are quite a few of them. The one I watched was the whole hillclimb from a camera behind him facing forward all the time. Talk about using Body English!!!!

    Anyway, multiple cameras apparently. When he leans right or left you can see the one that faces him. Looks like one of the GoPro 6's. I couldn't see the camera facing forward. Top-of-the-line professional editing. If he wasn't going so fast I'd say a drone was following him but no way it could ever go around him at those speeds.
