2011 Virginia City Grand Prix gorpo footage

Recommended Posts

What was with all the cluster****s?

Novice level riders.

450+ riders leaving the starting line in groups of 10 at 15 sec intervals.

Starting position goes by when you register, so a less skilled rider could be up front causing jam.

Faster guys who registered late get impatient and cause trouble.

heres some helmet cam footage from sunday. i will have part 2 done shortly.

Nice footage.

You picked a good line to get around the jam on the downhill and it looks like you got through the rocky uphill bottleneck in good time. Where did you end up?

Very cool vid! I was also wondering what was up with all the traffic jams. Hahaha.

Looking forward to part 2.

i ran on saturday #296 did 4 laps. the video does no justice to how steep that down hill was. we had a small bottle neck in the really loose rocky up hill area but nothin like that. i ran sunday last year and was sitting at the first bottle neck for an hour and the second in sutro for 30 min. it's and awesome race. i will have video of my first lap up soon. see you there next year.

People that decide to ride only once a year, make this their ride.
