Cheap ContourHD Spare Battery

The Contour HD battery (3.7v 1050 mAh) is ~$30 a piece everywhere on the internet. It is the same as the Nokia BL-5C that can be found at a much lower price point. I tested the one from my Nokia phone and it worked just fine. I just ordered two 1800 mAh ones from a Hong Kong dealer on ebay.

Contour HD 1080P

New toy.

I rigged a helmet mount using the included goggle mount and the piece of strap I got from the LBD race. It fits perfectly. I'm going to do a field test tomorrow.

Field test: Thursday at Schaeffer

Leesburg Bakers Dozen 2010

Chris and I arrived in the farm around 8am. The place was already so packed that we had to squeeze in between two cars and set up our base camp. Chris started the race with two solid laps. We alternated every two laps. Over 12 hours later, I finished the race with lights on.

The race course was hard packed and smooth. I was glad to have brought my geared full suspension, but regret that I didn't run tubeless - two snake-bites! Who would've thought Leesburg land could be this tough.

But I'm grateful all I had was flat, because it could be worse, as I saw this guy's teammate came back after the first lap with a broken carbon handlebar.

Results here:
