I have video from a bunch of different sources, Shelle’s little camera, Rick’s Flip, Holly’s video camera, and Kim’s video camera.
Some I could get to work in Pinnacle, some in Movie Maker, some no place, but never all of it in one place.
Finally I decided I’m no Coppola. Well, maybe I’m Sofia Coppola. Anyway, I chucked everything but the Flip, since it had the most race footage (as opposed to aid station footage, or start line footage, and really, you can get start line footage anywhere, and this is MY blog, MY video, and I’M the one who can’t get to sleep–I know you’re probably all done with Leadville by now, but when I get some time, I’ll try to mess with the disparate video sources yet again, and then you can see video of how close my friend Chuck was to Lance’s wheel into the Twin Lakes aid station).
So it’s all Flip all the time. Those of you who get nauseous from the hand held video effect might want to take a dramamine, or maybe skip it.
Ladies and gentlemen, highlights from Leadville 2008 (or more accurately, just the parts where I wasn’t too tired or too sick or too busy not crashing to hold the camera and turn it on):
