Rainer trials riding on the Isar trails in Munich, April 2010.

No music, since the natural sound of birds, blowing leaves and crashing bikes is preferred! ;-)

Filmed using a Panasonic GH1 and edited in Final Cut Pro. Nikon prime lenses* were used to take most of the footage, the kit 14-140mm was used a little too.

* with Vögtlander adapter,
16mm f2.8 fisheye - tube, concrete block
20mm f2.8 - first railings, some rock 360, log-nose-dive
50mm f1.5 - first van sequence, chain fixing finish
85mm f.18 - the rock 360° crashes

Kit 14-140mm - log ride

Mainly used the Nikon glass since it's faster and sharper. Although the GH1 kit lens is is very good (for a 10:1 zoom) I just needed faster than f4 most of the time in the woods.
