shot of me doing some drop to a rail

josh slapping up a rail then gapping to another one.

we got run off from pretty much every place we rode and i had to take off early to finish making dvd's that no one bought at the movie premier at the Werx. all in all, it was a really run ride while i was there and i saw something impressive out of everyone which i really like!

Thanks Shawn (but that hobo creeped me out... i dont like watching poo)

Those are some impressive moves Kevin. That first shot always looks so damn gnarly (probably because it is)

Were you not out filming or taking pics yourself that day?

thanks matt- that first shot was more commitment than anything, josh's slap up that rail gap was more skillzzzz! i had been doing some filming and taking a couple of pictures that day too. between shawn and my cameras we got some really good video and with motionboy-josh taking stills i think it ended up being a really good day. if josh shoots me some pictures soon i will post them (some we are trying to keep on the dl for possible mag publication or selling to companies for ads). this next video should be really really good!

Awww man, that sounds super pimp :D. Who is he contacting about mag publication... and is he talking to major bike mags, like "Biking" or "Mountain Bike Mag", or more of a narrow biking mag for "free riding" or whatever?

By "next video" do you mean computer video :x: or DVD?

ahh... dvd my good man. i will be putting out more net vids along the line to push the release of the dvd. they will be the riding that doesnt make the cut for the next dvd. i also wanted to get back to the grommits roots- expect less trials content but expect it to be crazy as poo riding. quality not quantity this time around- there will also be more free-riding (technical drops, stunts, dirt jumps, some crazy girl doing backflips) and downhill (with semi-pro/pro level riders tearing up the race course) and some street stuff too (care of the bomb heezie- theo). i want to make a vid that is less dominated by trials and more spread out and balanced. the trials will still be the coolest piece of the video though!

we are hoping to get the really good pictures published in stuff like flow, twentysix, dirt, decline (which are all the better bike mags right now), maybe sell some pics to companies that advertise all the time in the "big ones" like biking, mba... that kind of stuff. we shall see... :D

those taken with one of those 'fisheye' lenses or something?

either way, very impressive...

yes the shots are screen captures from the video shot of the moves. it was with a wide angle lens.

though that would be cool if there were some sort of time-space distortion in denver that bent everything around all funny with some really rediculous gravatational forces eh?

taylor- i missed the ride today for family stuff but hopefully we can catch up more often and get some more riding in. next time i will most definately not be on my mod!

Josh should send me the pictures of myself, as there certainly isn't any chance of those being published. Oh the narcissism...
I take pictures of other people, AND post them...a few hours later!! Ride with me!

i take it your shots are digital and dont have to be developed and then scaned and all that jazz?

pancho- shoot josh an email and let him know you would like to get the shots of you, im sure he will get em to you. i still havent seen the shots from that day either yet.
