I started the Bachelor Parks Real Lap series last season (14-15).
What is it? It is skiers and snowboarders doing a park lap for the camera without cuts or edits. The videos have no music track. I do commentary instead.
This is quite a challenge to most any rider.
They know if they don't land the jump, or don't get the full rail, tube, box, whatever, it will all be on camera for all to see.
That takes nerves of steel in my opinion. I think all the riders deserve huge up's for being victims in the series.
Many really good riders would not do a Bachelor Parks Real Lap when offered because of the way It worked. Just sayin'.
I do this all for the love of the sport and my own fun and pleasure.
There is absolutely no money involved.
I have shot all takers from any age or gender no matter how hot of riders they may have been. Not everyone has a camera guy, so for some folks it gave them something to remember. Something to share with their family and friends. That type of thing really makes me happy as I enjoy what I have been doing with the series.
If you have not seen them all, maybe you can take a bit of time and give the riders some up's and sweet comments. There are a few that did not get the type of up's the riders deserved. Then again, that's just my opinion.
I understand some folks don't care for my bla bla, That's cool. Can't please all the people all the time, but don't discount the riders just because of me.
A few have made comments like..."The skiing was sick, but the commentary sucked".
I actually can appreciate that! All credit to the rider of the Real Lap!
Well, I guess that's it.
I will continue the Bachelor Parks Real Laps series again this season (15-16)
If you think you have what it takes maybe I'll see you at Bachelor.
Be good all and just search my videos here. Snowboarders are awesome too and can be seen on my YouTube channel "Sagina1999".
Take care folks and pray for snow in the mountains! Jacques
