For your Friday viewing pleasure, a mountain biking video from my fellow UVM alum Andrew Whiteford (my apologies for the UVM plug), and Brian Lopes and Anne Caroline Chausson. Great song choice (Disparate Youth by Santigold). He seems pretty awestruck by his fellow riders based on his vimeo description:
“Earlier this summer I had opportunity to ride behind two of the most accomplished mountain bikers of all time: Brian Lopes and Anne Caroline Chausson. A humbling experience to say the least, but even more inspiring. Having a full week to chase after these two was a serious clinic for me, and occasionally left me in the dirt…but it always put a smile on my face. I could wax poetic about their two wheeled grace but just know that for a lifelong mountain biker, this was a dream come true. I may have tried to maintain an air of coolness, but my inner dialog was sounded more like a screaming Bieber fan.
I had my GoPro Hero2 running all week long and tried to edit some of the best footage down into this video.
The song is “Disparate Youth” by Santigold.
If that video still leaves you aching for winter, here’s my favorite from the vault, Whiteford’s 2011 mid-winter season edit.
