Extra Footage: 7 out of 10
GoPro, this is not what I meant when I said more extra footage. A bunch of quick shots of people walking in the pits and mechanics washing off bikes isn't exciting. Especially when put to weird acid trip music. So this time, I'll clarify. GoPro, I would like more extra footage that compliments the "storyline" of the video each week. And don't say that there isn't a storyline because most of the time, there is. I'd like to see you follow around a man and his son who only get to go to one race a year. I'd like to see what races are like from Erin Normoyle's perspective or, if you see him at a race, follow around Ian Trettel. Only about 1/6 of your videos is ever comprised of extra footage, so why not make it interesting?
Atmosphere: 3 out of 10
What did I just watch? This was a strange and, in my opinion, poor choice of music by the GoPro squad. That's to say the least. You don't put music at the beginning of a video like this that is "ambient", to say the least. This would be the perfect video for some high-pumping techno or even some rap or something if that's what they wanted. But all this music does is make me feel like I'm watching the Racer X Motocross Show while tripping on some new drug. Not good, GoPro. Not good.
Race Footage: 7 out of 10
Meh. That's all I can really say about most of the race footage given. I wanted to see James Stewart's crash, but no such luck. I wanted to see the footage of Alex Martin's "Holy Shit!" start in moto 2, but nope. Not happening. The most interesting thing I got out of this was the crash that Ryan Sipes got involved in and the fact that Kyle Peters is back. I feel really dumb and silly for not knowing that one of my favorite rookies was back this weekend. So good job, guys. You embarassed me.
Overall: Not really a fan. I'm sure some people think differently, but I just didn't like it. Better luck next week!
