Is that Le Col done in a straight line? Did you measure the speed?

Well, you gotta be a Moto GP pilot to have your face 10 cm close to the track... for me it is only my knees to feel the angle.... but some can actually put down the elbow / palm, too.

Now I understand why Swoard is red. It is a perfect combination of colors: blue sky, white snow, red board. On top of this the Swoard logo is blue, matching the color of the sky, and your jacket is also really spot on! Very nice picture!

I think you just explained the meaning of the English phrase 'old fart'.... I think measuring the speed is good for one thing: makes you realize how dangerous this thing is. It will not make you cooler, no way. Actually when we took the GPS up the hill we agreed that the fastest will be granted the ...

I used a device developed for tracking. It looked pretty accurate when testing it with my car. On the other hand I also agree that it might be inaccurate. But if you think about it, if it is inacurate then it would show lower speeds for 2 reasons: 1) The GPS measures distance between points versus e...

Thanks Blitz. Although I did not understand the full article, I saw the chart that indicates speeds. Those 2 values are apparently in line with what I measured. Well, here are the speeds I measured (I had the GPS all day with me and I checked top speed after each and every run, so the below values a...

Measuring speed with GPS during snowboarding

Have you guys already tried it? I'm almost sure you have. What were the results you got? I do not want to have a pissing contest here, so I'll not post mines this time, but I got some really scary results that I have not expected and just want to check if those results are in the range of what you m...
