Shades of that ugly ass Marin linkage in there. Heard they ride nice though, so I could get over that.

British Cycling Revises Rules on Helmet Cameras at Events
As far as I know these are downhill races, on mostly established tracks. Maybe you know more than me about this particular instance, but I'm lost on what the organizer could do wrong to invite a lawsuit that could then be proven with GoPro footage. Aside maybe from bitchy whining about how a certain section made them crash because it hadn't been dumbed down enough, but I have no respect for someone who would enter a race, inspect the course and then sue on those grounds in a country with available public healthcare.

British Cycling Revises Rules on Helmet Cameras at Events
So I race ski cross at a pretty high level, and we have a similar rule. I won't give FIS the benefit of assuming it was put in for any kind of good reason, but as athletes we agree with it. We have noticed that helmet cameras have a nasty habit of grabbing on things like safety netting, the ground etc as you fall into them, making them a slight menace in the course. In biking this does seem less of an issue since helmets tend to have more sticky outy things anyway, but something to consider. Sounds like a liability thing for BC anyway. If people were using helmet cam footage to sue me at my own event, you know what? I'd ban them too.

I can't argue with that and certainly never meant to. I believe in the importance of having those aforementioned tools in order to make an informed decision as to one's acceptable level of risk, and, in certain situations offer a possible last line of defence in the event of a mistake. I think that some pieces of a difficult puzzle may have been missed in this situation, and I hope that it never happens again. That's all.

RIP Shane. Losing friends to the mountains is a terrible price to pay for all that we take from them. I never met Shane, but from the outpouring of grief I've observed after this tragedy I have no doubt he was an amazing person. For this reason, I'm sure he would not want his death to be in vain. Please let others learn from this tragedy and stop calling it a 'freak avalanche', because Shane's death was entirely preventable, as hard as it must be to admit right now. He was riding in a very weak snowpack, in a large, east facing slide path just above treeline when he triggered the slide. This was a dangerous choice, and without any avalanche gear to back him up, it became a tragic one. Shane's story is a compelling reason for anyone who ventures into the backcountry to be properly trained and fully equipped with the correct equipment. I'm sorry to be that guy in a tough time, but I felt that should be made clear. Again, my condolences to Shane's family and many friends.

Rocks are always better, especially in the dust. Nothing like the ch-ch-c-c-c-cha feeling of skipping through dusty slabs and rocks.
