Just finished this yesterday. I had done the velodrome previously. I like the content and “group ride feel” along with general camera work. I hope the Boulder Chamber of Commerce paid you a stipend…not that they are challenged getting people to move there…that is purely limited by the insane housing market…anyhow my feedback/input for this week with Neil.
you guys got to work on your audio - I have my pc on max volume it is still pretty quiet and when there is dialog, I am guessing Neil is only one mic’d – Hire Phil Gaimon. I want that conversation (and I realize that in a normal ride, I can’t hear the guys in front of me…) – you also have levels that vary a LOT in gravel grinder I think as you shift from external camera locations to just Neil on the trail. Spend more time in post.
I think you should publish the GPX files, on Gravel Grinder I was thinking if I had a business trip to Boulder I would haul my XC bike up and ride that.
Some more weeks I would like: A week with Phil G clmbing the Hollywood hills. A week with a Crit team: L39ion, Automic including a race. A week with Willy Smit – he could do a couple: Andorra “group rides” and one in Africa. A week with Annemiek. I would also like branch outs like a week with Daniela Ryf or Nino Schurter (if you kept it bike lane)
For me, the audio mix was messed up. My computer was on Mono output and it caused the dialog to disappear. Once I switched back to stereo audio was back. They should go back and just remix the audio track.
Most of Boulder proper was spared, though many of our neighbors in Louisville and Superior lost their homes. Nearly 1,000 homes were lost in the fires. The fire started just about 1 mile away from my home, and while we were without power for 3-days here, we were quite lucky. There are many opportunities to help out including many organized at the following link if you’re so inclined: Marshall Fire - Boulder Beat
I did Rabbit Mountain yesterday and enjoyed it very much. That last stretch up the hill was pretty brutal. In my head I was having a go at @Coach.Neal.H: “Come on Neal, you can do it, get the others!” Didn’t help…
The rest of the week’s schedule will have to wait until later. My routine covid test showed up positive today. Boo.
