Are POV race videos cool or lame?

I've been struggling over the last few years to film, edit, and produce race videos. I've been trying to improve the quality but wonder if they are even worth watching. Here is the latest... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bzlLWo9JVtw&feature=youtu.be Thoughts? Chris

Great job, I have seen quite a few of these vids and your's may be one of the more polished. I liked the occasional 3rd person inserts from the roadside which did a nice job of breaking it up, the mix of commentary and music, the dynamic course map. Sadly, the downhill bit starting at 4:30 has me itching to leave work to get on the bike early and I've still got 3+ hours to go.

The only other helmet cam movies I occasionally watch are the chavezcycling fliks - mainly because I like the same catchy tune he plays on most of the vids. Ironically the majority of comments seem to be asking he remove the annoying music /img/vbsmilies/smilies/wink.gif

Good music. Nice venue.

I liked your video.
