Just for Fun Friday – Team Virtus Greatest Hits (and Crashes) Edition

In case you haven’t seen some of our videos, I thought we would share some or our greatest hits with you to brighten your day as you head into the weekend.  All but one of the clips are between 8 and 36 seconds, so it won’t take very long to view them.  And as always, let us know what you think in the comments section.  Here you go…

Take a gander at this clip of Bob getting “caught from behind” at Syllamo:

And here’s my failed attempt at riding the same rocks at Syllamo:

Here’s a clip of Bob just having fun blazing his own path at Castlewood State Park, and note my encouraging words convincing Bob to go for it:

Back when Zack was on the team, he provided a ton of entertainment.  Here’s a clip of Zack trying to bunny-hop a log on the Bittersweet Trail down at Lake of the Ozarks:

Here’s a second camera angle of the failed bunny-hop, and it’s worth watching just to hear Bob laugh his ass off:

This is perhaps the funniest video we’ve ever shot (also of Zack at Bittersweet), and if this doesn’t make you laugh, then you really need to seek psychiatric help right now.  Bob’s reaction and my triumphant “YESSS!!!” at the end are just icing on the cake.  Enjoy:

And like any good Greatest Hits Compilation, you have to add some new material.  So here is a never-before seen helmet-cam clip of Bob crashing for no apparent reason at the worst race ever:

Well, we hope you enjoyed that stroll down memory lane as well as the new clip of Bob’s crash.  We really need to start filming more of our escapades, don’t we?  Until next time, Ciao!

  1. Wasn’t there a good video from a ride with Austin, too? These were great, though I’m not sure Zack’s bunny hop warranted “failed”…he just maybe could’ve picked a better line after landing (well, not better from an entertainment perspective).

    I hereby volunteer to be the camera (woman) when we race together….then I can be the one instigating carnage (froma safe distance away!).

    • I’m not sure if there’s a missing video of Austin. I’ll have to check with Casey.

      And you’re right… Zack cleared the log, but it wasn’t pretty. And he definitely could have picked a better line after landing. My shin was a little bloody after that one.

      And there’s no way you’re going to be holding the camera when we race together. We need some footage of Kage in action!

  2. Where’s the “YOU’RE HAAAAAAAAT! 🙂 Funny stuff. I wish I would have had the camera on for Bob’s first attempt at the root section at Castlewood.

  3. Never mind…this is the post I was thinking of. Sounds like you should’ve been video-ing, though. https://team-virtus.com/2010/01/25/wintry-tomfoolery-ice-airtime-wipe-outs-and-a-turk/

  4. “Dont think, just go”…. Inspiring words from a man with a camera in his hands.
