  1. I love the video Patrick! One of my favourite parts is when it goes into slow motion and the music starts to fade and the the heavier music starts and it speeds up again. So cool!! You did a phenomenal job. 😀

  2. Wow great video Patrick. And a great event.
    It was a lot of fun being around other xfiters last weekend. My legs on the otherhand would disagree.
    Would it be ok if I posted this video on my site??? I know my crew has been eager to see Patrick’s creation.

    Ps…virtual shovelling is evil!

    Excellent video Patrick – it captures the driven, almost frantic pace of the event.

    Kevin, I will be unable to attend my 6:30 class, something has come up.
