A few weeks ago, we took a look at a few dirtwire.tv videos from the SuperCross Cup. Included in these was a GoPro video of Justin Lindine (Apex / NBX / Hyperthreads) “passing a million dudes,” which was clearly prime #content:
System could be better but I can life with it. I just don't have a camera here for a second passing some dudes @dirtwiretv video

Thom Parsons has several GoPro cameras for his coverage and each race during the Vittoria Series, he offers them to riders who want to give viewers an on-board look at the professional racing experience.
When things work out right, riders with GoPros end up battling each other, making for great “dueling GoPros” footage. Parsons overlays hip tracks over the video, so if old-school is more your speed, feel free to overlay the “Dueling Banjos” track from Deliverance over the videos.

Oh no, @JLindine and @danchabanov's GoPros are almost completely synced up until Merv's barrier crash at NBX day 1. WHYEEE are you guys so good at GoPros? This is so much more work for me. The awesome must be made. #nbxgpcx

At last weekend’s NBX Gran Prix of Cyclocross in Rhode Island, the racing produced two dueling GoPro videos.
In the Women’s race, Cassie Maximenko (Van Dessel / Atom Composites) and Rebecca Fahringer (Stan’s NoTubes p/b Maxxis/gofahr) battled for third, with Maximenko ultimately landing on the podium.
In the Men’s race, Lindine and Dan Chabanov (House Industries / Nokia Health / Simple Human) duked it out early in the race. Lindine took fourth and Chabanov seventh. Lindine went on to win Day 2 on Sunday.
Get a look at what it is like to race at the Elite level, from a GoPro perspective, in these two dirtwire.tv videos.
