A little Cliffhanger fun! I’ve done a very short section of this before, but this time I did the whole length of the edge. It’s either and air-lift, or worse if you fall! Of course, there’s no extra uni skills needed, just a lot of confidence, and maybe a little insanity…or vice-versa, haha!
Anyway, this is one time that using pov really closely captures the feel of the steepness, and puts you right there. And holding the camera while riding probably ups the risk anti just a bit! I just think it looks cool if anything else.
Haha, I thought that might be brought up. The difference is, in the cold springs video, I didn’t actually fall off my uni and down the embankment at the same time. My MUni went over the side alone, then I tried walking down after it, and slipped! :o
But you’re right, anything can happen, but it really didn’t seem as dangerous as when I first viewed it on video, lol! I don’t think I’ll be doing that kind of thing again anytime soon. I’ll just stick to 6 foot drops haha!
I probably won’t be doing that kind of thing again. Once was more than enough! :o
I would be happy to make a switch in sponsors! (hint, hint Kris!:))
Well, with riding I’m in control, not someone I can’t see in the front of the huge aluminum tube, hurtling through the sky at 500mph and 35,000 feet!
But yeah, kind of a strange dichotomy, similar to how I feel very much in control and confident on stage doing my act, but I’m totally uncomfortable in crowds, or with a few people I don’t know, or know very well, or making “small talk” with people. :o
