Ken,
They have done several "RideOfYourLife" videos.  They are up to IX or more now.  The one I sent to the newsgroup is IX and is about USF road riding team.  They have done several videos at Alafia, Santos, and Carter RD.

The ROYL video of Alafia we all have seen is VI.  Here is a link to the video on Myspace.

Kevan,
It will be good if you can inbed the video here.  Actually, why don't we create a speacial section about MTB videos.  Strickly our own videos of SWAMPER or videos of others in our local trails.  I'll post this on the suggestion page.

That video is really good. The week after I broke my leg, I must have watched it 30 times. I paused it every time he passed my rock on Rabbit Ears. A bit weird I know but great video!

I watched this video and liked the out of control song so much I went out and bought the Hoobastank CD and ripped it to my mp3 player.  I was listening to the album on my second trip around North Creek. I stopped and circled back to a drop and quick rise about 1/4 of the way through the ride.  I was test riding a Specialized XC with flats.  The music was playing I was not paying much attention because I wanted to catch some air.  I did that and my feet came off the pedals I landed okay and I was pumped.  Then I noticed what song was playing on my mp3 player.  Out of Control.  I smiled and circled back for another drop.  Irony is sometimes sweet.

You are out of control Joe....  Bring the mp3 to nc/ga next week and we'll crank it up no the downhills there to get some big time air.....

New to SWAMP, the forum, and the area....that video was SWEET!

I've been out at Alafia like 5 times in the past week since I moved here....AWESOME PLACE!!
I met some of the SWAMP peeps out there yesterday and rode for a little while with them.

I've gotten some OK air on rollercoaster (love that trail), but where are the best places to catch some good air out at Alafia? ???
Work, what's that?!  Oh, s*** I'm late!

Welcome Bear,

If you watch the video in this thread, you will see there are a few places. The whoops on Bridges is one spot, as you mentioned Rollercoaster has a spot or two, even NorthCreek has a couple of good spots.
