Cwmcarn DH - Mid + Lower Red

Postby The Northern Monkey » Mon Sep 03, 2012 21:37 pm

Managed to actually get a vid up from Saturday, my net is being crap at the mo so it seems to be taking ages!

Last run of the day and probably my best tbh, was just about getting used to the new setup!

Would be good!

Trail is fairly cut up now though! Some big rocks and the gradient isn't really picked up on the Contour..

I haven't run the DH yet but the actual Twrch XC trail is the same. Really heavy rutting due to water flowing off the track... the last section of the XC trail is fcuking brutal for this very reason, not as fun as it should be.

How big was that file Ben? and how long did it take to upload?

Mine was about 1.4gb and took like 5hrs to upload. Thing is, I've nothing to benchmark it against, so no idea if that's really slow (it certainly seems it) or not.

I think it was about 380mb (3 min vid, 720p @ 60fps). The upload was ranging from 10-20 mins to 2 hours lol. Bloody internet.

I've got 30mb Virgin broadband with (i think) a max 3mb/s upload.

Yeah, but CWNTs on the IoM, he has to send a load of floppy discs by carrier pigeon to the mainland for uploading. :wink:

I'm talking about the final descent on Twrch, not the downhill track.... That is in really bad condition, huge water rut right through the middle of it.

Hopefully it's not too bad, I'm heading there on Sunday after some Afan action.

I did the Twrch on Sunday, was awesome and the final descent was fine, great fun, maybe you were going to slow and feeling every bump ;-)
