Stabilized Footage Of A Mountain Biker Flying Down A Trail

October 28, 2016


This is the footage taken by mountain biker Steve Storey, then stabilized so the terrain doesn't bounce around, only the bike. It's pretty mesmerizing to watch. Also, that ride looked pretty dangerous. There were several times when I thought he was going to wind up kissing a tree. Or, worse, unintentionally banging one. Of course maybe I'm just projecting because I know I could never do this because I have the reflexes of a sloth. True story: one time some dude punched me in a bar fight and I didn't even react till the next day, when I found out where he lived and set the place on fire.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Shane L, who agrees if you're going to fight a tree, it's way better to attack with an axe than your head.

    This is what being a bird is like.

    Stableizes nicely after I stop rolling.

    I don't believe it. This can't be real. Between the unbelievable skill of the cyclist or the extremely steady shot from the video camera, no one/nothing is that good.

  • King POTUS

    Looks like someone doesn't know what "stabilized" means. And yes, some people practice their whole lives doing something and are just THAT good.


    What do you mean? He's a good cyclist, but the trail or riding wasn't crazy. As for the stabilization, I think it's a really good mix between physical camera stabilization and digital image stabilization.It's very impressive.
    If you want crazy MTB cycling, watch this:
    The trail is far more difficult and the rider is much faster. World class performance I'd say.

    Pssshh... Return of the Jedi did it first.

  • This is better.
    Less Ewoks.

    I feel nauseous still. That guy's riding abilities make mine look like a wobbly toddler falling off a tricycle.

  • It makes mine look like a trout on a pogo stick.

  • Cup-O-Jesus

    Makes mine look like a drunken dishtowel riding a one-legged hyperkinetic spider monkey with Downs syndrome.
