Hey everybody, The Chilean Six Days is less than three weeks away, most of us leave in two weeks for La Serena, so it's time to rev things up here a little bit.
I came across this helmet cam video I worked on with Jeff Fredette last year during the New Zealand Six Days and thought it might put us all in the mood.
Fredette wore the helmet cam during his end of the day 15 minute work period and it's done in real time with a couple of drop in "bird-eye view" shots.
Jay Hall, of Hall's Husqvarna / GasGas, is the Parc Ferme manager and can be seen with the GasGas t-shirt on. Jay is an example of the roughly 100 volunteers that help make the American Six Days effort a success each year.
The video is about 13 minutes long and gives an ISDE rider's eye view of what the 15 minute end of the day routine is like.
This year we (GoFasters) are working on putting together videos of each day's activities to go along with still photos and online commentary and reporting we do here, on our website and on Cyclenews.com.
Hope you enjoy it.
