try throwing in some stills (second camera?) once in a while might help to carry the vid along? Yep doing the pulls and selects take time... The shot with the river crossing - i was hoping for a shot from the front as well. Perhaps ask the riders if they will do a repeat stream crossing? good job keeping the camera steady and with the edit. Even when i am riding i have a tendency to move my head all around. And typically the stinkin' batteries die and i end up with nothin'. FCP 7.x is the gold standard - Adobe Premiere has come along way from the days i messed around with it.... my video days go back to single chip panasonic (AG-456) cameras and (AG1970 deck), and 3/4" etc.
