Shot 1
Video: California. Highway 1. Sunrise, low shot of road pavement, Road is an obvious incline going up left to right. Ocean and cliffs in background further emphasize height.
Audio: Very quiet natural ambient sound.

Video: The wheels and lower part of eight white bikes rush past the camera racing up the hill.
Audio: Pedals turning over fast, rush of wind as bikes race past, heavy breathing.

Shot 2

Video: Same sunrise. Camera is tilted showing nothing but blue sky. Sun rays sparkle in the lens.
Audio: Very quiet natural ambient sound.
Audio: Audio of bmx rider approaching a ramp. Audio ends when rider launches in the sky, helping propagate the idea of time standing still.
Video: Silhouetted bmx rider launches in the air, seeming to fly in the air as he completes a trick.

Shot 3

Video: Sunrise. Beautiful forest shot. (Maybe from the river looking towards the bank.) Tall grass hides any sense of single track.
Audio: Typical early morning forest sounds - birds chirping, water trickling, wind blowing through trees.
