Mt. Tabor Series – 2010

I really want to talk about the Mt. Tabor series, but all I can really discuss these days is my new slow motion camera. It’s just like a regular shitty old digital camera… IF A REGULAR SHITTY OLD DIGITAL CAMERA TOOK AMAZING SLOW MOTION VIDEOS! The uses are limitless. Unless you’re like me, in which case the uses are limited to funny faces and flying kittens. So let’s just set aside the details of the tabor races for a second, and instead feast our eyes on this

Yea. It’s a race video. In slow motion. With a crazy kid spinning around like Stevie Nicks in the foreground.

The Mt. Tabor Race Series is exactly the same as it was last year. And the year before that. In fact, I think they just change the dates on the website because nothing else is different. SO rather than talk about the race, it’s easier to treat the time on the hill like one of those Spot the Difference video games that eats all of my quarters when I’m drunk and bored at the bar.

Here are the differences I’ve noticed between 2009 and 2010.

1. Lil’ Walton is still winning the fixed great category, but he has a mangy (not manly) beard. When I brought this up to him, my reference to “Grizzly Adams” was totally lost. That is how young kids today are. Here he is mugging for the camera… in slow motion.

2. Every team has adopted a whiter kit. White spandex makes you ride fast, because if you ride slow wearing a white kit everyone will see your hoohoodilly.

3. Where there was once a circle of people roasting marshmallows for s’mores, now there is just mud. These June rains have ruined the community aspect of racing at Tabor.

I’ll be there on Wednesday. Racing. In slow motion. But totally unrelated to my new fancy camera. So if you have something you’d like filmed in slow motion, please let me know.
