Rockburn Cross, day two of the Howard County Double Cross, took place November 21. Yes, that was a month ago and we are playing a little bit of catchup here at CXHairs HQ, but this way the video has a tinge of nostalgia to it.
If you have watched the preview commentaries we have been posting throughout the season, there are several themes that come up in almost every episode. One of the most important is to know what you are going to do, before you do it. This is especially true for mud and sand sections. If you are going to run, commit to it early. Don’t decide at the last second.
As you will see, early in lap one, this rule is not followed. And the result is some really nice close-up footage of the grass before the entrance to the sand pit. Lesson learned. Maybe.
Soundtrack is by Nine Inch Nails. When Trent Reznor released the Ghosts albums a couple years back he allowed people to use the tracks in personal film projects. The soundscapes give some nice atmosphere to film projects and as long as you’re not selling the finished product, anybody can use them. Pretty cool on the part of Reznor.
Video from the MABRAcross champs race is still waiting to be posted and the CXHairs action team is out this weekend filming races in Pennsylvania. So it looks like the mothballs are going to have to wait a couple more weeks before we put the lid on the CX season.
Thanks for watching.
