Australia vs Mike Brown: round 2 Enduro-X Nationals Sydney 28 Feb 2015

another awesome ride by usa rider mike brown yesterday, but i reckon our guys put on a great show given how new endurocross is over here and mike has been specialising in endurocross for years now.

got to have a quick chat with josh green and toby price who were running second and third to mike after round one in brisbane - both of these guys are new to endurocross and clocked some incredible times considering.

as most of you will know, toby did incredibly well in dakar recently with a third place, an epic all round rider who does well at any form of dirt riding he has a crack at.

melbourne is the next lucky city with the third and final round at calder park 14th march.

Excellent video wrap up B1... you have a real flair for this stuff.

I am assuming from the track position shots and post race interviews, etc. - that you were acredited to shoot from the infield...? Good PR savvy from the organiser it looks like... hope that the momentum keeps going for the third round in Melbourne.

Kudos to Mike Brown for his win... that guy has been around (top level) MX, motard, enduro and endurocross - for a good while now...

yeah troy, got media accreditation so could get close to the action.

bit of a bugger though, i thought i was doing an official video for them so spent the entire day and night filming, then editing all the next day, and turns out they got someone else to do the "official" video and used that instead on their facebook page, enduro21 etc.

would have just done a basic vid otherwise.

It was a great nights entertainment. That Mike Brown was so smooth, and the bugger is 45years old. He looked like he wasnt even raising a sweat.

I was especially impressed with Adrian Harry on the trials bike in the over 35's. From memory he won every race, just kept plodding along and letting the MXers make mistakes, his lines over the rocks and logs were awesome and thats where he made up the time.

Well run too, good access, parking was great and the beer was reasonably priced. I'll be back next year.

Nice Video B1. Top job.
Was a good day/night, but not something that floats my boat as it is so tight and so slow speed wise. Great entertainment for the crowd however and kudos to the promoters for doing an outstanding job. I snapped a few pics as well.

nice shots sylvia. get any of the stunt rider?

i got a bit of quick footage of him between heats but unfortunately the drag track wasn't suitable for a pile of his drifting stunts with the uneven texture of the surface.

mel did a great job, she didn't have the speed of the top girls but she was so smooth and consistent for most of the heat.... very good at pacing herself and staying calm. she was very happy with her ride too.

as for the vids, it's only the music on the second one (courtesy of your esteemed self) that prevents their complete slide into mediocrity in terms of editing and cinematography. you have to do more of those metal-style tracks!
