Last year, I was invited on what was sure to be one of the coolest press trips of my life. Michelin wanted us to test their new Michelin Power RS and, to do so, they were taking a select group of us to Qatar.

Better yet, they were taking us to Qatar for the season opener of the 2017 MotoGP season and, better than that, they had four or five down days between the race and tire test.

I had zero intentions of trying to make a vlog work at the time, but most press trips are to Spain and for 36 hours total, so I knew I had to try and capture this one—even if just to show my mom.

The trip was incredible, Qatar is easily one of my favorite places I’ve been lucky enough to travel to and, while not great, I’m super happy I filmed it all and made this little video.

I’ve only just begun to learn to shoot and edit, so be kind in your judgments (but any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated). Yes, I know I need to capture better audio (and speak more slowly).

I hope you enjoy it.
