Unicon 16 Media

This was posted in another thread today. There are some great moments in it that I would have missed out on. The music is not my kind but I like the rest of the video:

I uploaded the remaining pics from my camera to http://photobucket.com/unicon16

I also have lots of great professional quality pics from the DH race but I didn’t shoot them myself, so I’m hoping the photographer will share them himself.

Nic posted another video in another thread:

Does anyone know where the photos are that were playing as a slide show during the final party? There was an awesome muni one of me but I don’t see it on the Unicon Facebook page…

I think the Facebook pics are all from unicon16s smugmug page, which seems to have more pictures. Maybe you can find it there?

In case anybody missed it, here’s a link to another thread with video of the flatland finals and semi-finals:

I heard from one of the videographers that this footage will be processed into “official” recordings. He wasn’t sure if it was going to be a physical DVD or a download, nor if it would be free or paid. Don’t expect it on YouTube anyway.

It all depends on this course. This year a 24 was perfect. Next Unicon who knows but I doubt it will be as technical so a bigger wheel might win. As for xc, a 26S won and I don’t see 24S winning that anytime soon unless it’s a super technical and short course.

Jamey, you answered a spambot there, he has been removed from the forums. Original:

was copied by spambot “infoleather”, which you replied to.

Funny how some spambots copy stuff and don’t have any advertising in the beginning. It makes them harder to be tracked down. Probably they intend to change their sig for ads later.

Marathon finish!

Here is one of Kjersti’s iPhone-clip from the finishing line, marathon.


I eventually got my own pictures posted:

There are four albums for Unicon XVI: Individual Freestyle, Pairs Freestyle, Group Freestyle and Everything Else.

This year I missed a lot of major events; I didn’t see any actual Trials, Flat or Street competition. :frowning: But I did see lots of other stuff, and had an excellent time. Eventually I will be posting pictures from Rome, Venice, Florence, Pisa and Innsbruck! Those will be found in the Travel section (Europe):

Thanks for sharing, John. I enjoyed it.
And those cable car clips were hilarious!

I’m working on a feature documentary of Unicon 16 – it’s turning out great ! I’ll keep you updated on the final destination…


Cant wait. I still watch the one you made off the unicon in copenhagen 2008 from time to time. I think its the best movie if you want to explain to non unicyclists what our sport is about.

Holding my breath…

I am 59 and a half and happy to see this thread. Lots of good people here and lots of good information. I have never gone to a unicycle convention but from everything I have read I am getting more and more intrigued.


Hi Mike, we must be very close to the same age. On the date you posted that, I was less than a week past being 59 and a half. I’ve been to four Unicons and lots of “lower level” unicycling conventions, and I love it.

Hello Klaas Bil. Thanks for your response. I appreciate it.

I will do what I can to get to some unicycle gatherings. Seems like that would be a good goal for my '60’s!!!
