Eat our dust! That’s what the Westcoast Cokers want others to do while they compete in the 800km, 5-day unicycle race set for Nova Scotia, Canada, this 16-20th June 2008.
Filmed mainly from John Bain’s 29-inch unicycle, he follows teammates, Jim Dugue and Jamey Mossengren, riding 36-inch cokers during a Ride The Lobster training run near Huntington Beach, California, USA. This video clip provides an early ‘Ride The Lobster’ experience. Just add about 30 more teams to this picture.
Perhaps there are some unicyclists out there coming to this event that would be keen to act as filmmakers for the two documentary crews filming this event. If you’re interested contact Sherry Devanney of Mentor Pictures with an offer of filming support. They will probably tell the film crew from Westcoast Cokers to add a wind-screen to their camera microphone next time.
PS Did you hear the duck-squawking from John Bain’s pedals?
