Penang Dh Helmet Cam - King Of Mt Erskine

Postby CroMo on Tue 28/Sep/10 9:02pm

I competed in a DH race in the weekend at Mt Erskine, Penang, Malaysia. Was a fairly easy track but was heaps of fun to ride.
22 jumps and high speed at the top.

This is a helmet cam video of a chilled practice run. :) (low quality vid - haven't gone HD yet :paranoid: )

Is that the hill with the cable car going up it?

If so the monkeys on the track up to the top freaked me out a bit when I walked up it many years ago :o

looks like a hickie friendly downhill course to!

looks like you had to brake a bit so you didnt overshoot some of those jumps and land on the take off of the next jump

No - wasn't near the cable car - we had to push up as there was no uplift access

There were two big "rollers" that required pre braking but alot of the course was brake-less. Nicely made jumps that flowed together (mostly..)

These are some of the prizes available - there were more prizes than there were competitors so everyone was guaranteed a prize.

I walked away with a new full face DH helmet!
