“Behind The Barriers” Episode 12 from Behind The Barriers on Vimeo.

Hot off the smoking hard drive of Sam Wiley Smith comes the latest installment of the Jeremy Powers reality show. In this episode we find our hero, J-Pow! battling the tallest man in Cyclocross, Ryan Trebon for the win at the 7th round of the USGP in Portland, Oregon. Having watched every episode of the series, I will say that this is definitely the best race footage I’ve seen so far. Not sure if it’s the fact that Smith switched to shooting with a DSLR or if he’s just generally upped his cinematographic game, but the shots of the Portland course are breathtaking. And I don’t even use the term breathtaking. Any time I say it, I want to punch myself right in the Netherlands.
