Much like slow-motion replays, everything also looks cool in time-lapse playback.

The race is actually called a `Hound and Hare`, one or two balloons go up and land somewhere else in town. The other Balloon are trying to throw a bean bag as close to that landing spot as possible. All the pilots only have vertical control, so they must get into the correct thermals to move horizontally. It`s very impressive what they can do

You notice how many went up, only to come down a few hundred feet away and melt down? Well, obviously the time-lapse made it looks like a melt, but that`s a lot of balloons that seems to have problems or give up rather quickly... I think I`ll walk.

Cool to watch. As I understand it, balloon "races" are about navigation and accuracy more than speed. Not quite sure how it works though.

Avid: What if? You would pray, of course. And maybe jump. Or die.

That was cool as hell, even though it wasn`t so much a race but a clusterf*ck of balloons.
