The 2014 Tour de France was our 9th consecutive Tour. This year, as with 2012 & 2013, we were on assignment with Bicycling.com. We produced daily video interviews, features, product overviews and Tour Talk, a daily stage recap with James Startt and Frankie Andreu. Here are some of our favorite videos from our coverage of the 2014 Tour de France.
We produced this technical video for SRAM’s New Model Year 2015 Hydraulic Road Brakes. This video was on the heels of SRAM’s initial hydraulic road brake launch which went through a recall. After the recall we produced a couple of updates including two featuring Stan Day, President of SRAM. The videos were published on SRAM’s popular YouTube channel – SRAM Road Diaries.
We returned to the Sea Otter Classic after a few years hiatus on assignment for Bicycling.com. Here are the videos we produced for their channel:

Competitor.com had a strong media campaign leading up to and during the 2014 Boston Marathon. Much of our footage from 2013 was used in the creation of the following videos celebrating the event, people and city of Boston.
Over the past 6-months we have been working with D3 Multisport, a top triathlon and endurance sports training & coaching company in Boulder, CO. The project consisted of beginner and advanced coaching videos taking on a variety of topics from what and how to eat during training to proper swimming techniques and much more. We also created a few individual videos introducing the coaches, history in endurance sports and their expertise. The beginner videos are completed and we are currently working through the final edits of the advance series. Check out their website to see how they are integrating the videos into the content on the page – D3 Multisport Strength Training While Traveling Nutrition on Race Day Learn to Smile
We were involved in the post production of DU’s “Voices of Experience” keynote featuring Zayo’s CEO Dan Caruso. The event was held at Daniels College of Business on February 24, 2014. Dan’s speech discusses the rise, fall, & resurgence of the fiber industry. He shares battle stories and lessons learned from his career and the growth of Zayo Group. We were able to turn this project around within a day of receiving the source video files.
Kilian Jornet was in Boulder, Colorado in the days leading up to the 2013 UROC in Vail. He was promoting his book at the Boulder Running Company and doing a Q&A with Competitor Running. Here are a few videos from the evening:

We work with businesses and corporations to produce a variety of video marketing projects. This project combined an interview with Zayo’s CEO, Dan Caruso, and a screencast walk-through of their Tranzact / Quote’s online tools.
Colorado continues to deliver an awesome and exciting stage race. We worked this race with the Bicycling.com team and produced all video media for their website. Producing the daily Race Radio segment is always an opportunity to add a little humor:
It’s not often that you interview Jens Voigt and get such a serious response:
This video with Christian Vande Velde on his retirement is probably my favorite of the week:
We returned to cover Interbike after a two year hiatus. In years past we have covered CrossVegas, but that was not on our schedule this year, which allowed for fun spectating instead of scrambling around the course looking for the best camera angle. In addition to the usual Bicycling.com tech and product videos, we produced a few interesting interviews Fausto Pinerello, Mike Sinyard and Greg LeMond:
