 That fusion one is just annoying

 Creating the globe like nasa

 @RedBurn: imagine; the earth is so small with 1 trail only....

 Only one of those submissions was watchable. Did the pick poorly done ones to make more people submit? “Oh, that looks terrible, I could do better than that.” kind of thing.

 That's the trippiest POV I've ever seen.

 I don’t know what you guys are talking about but I like the one of the helmet floating above a miniature Ewok planet.

 I don't know, it's kind of the only unique thing going on here. The riders are all great but this is a video contest, not a riding contest.

 @fullfacemike: since it can't be edited, ultimately it becomes the best riding and coolest looking terrain when shot from a helmet cam contest.

 I agree, that fusion costs like $500, someone who bought that much worth of camera should not be able to win this contest.

 @benhempymtb: the GoPro gimbal costs $300 and will probably be used in a ton of submissions.

 @Tshuttleworth: lol Fusion... He must've fused biking and acid. That was trippy. Boring yet entertaining. I can't stop laughing at that stupid thing; it's a cat video. lol

 For anyone that relies on a GoPro and their smartphone/tablet, this contest is not for you. You’ll spend too much time struggling to pair the 2 devices.

 Oh man! First video rocks, definitely riding that line on my next trip to Canda!

 I watched that and thought "why is he going so slow?" And then he sped up SO QUICK and I was like "Oh it's steep as f*ck"

 @LukeBurgie: Yeah its insane how fast you get going. My entry is the same line but with a slight hiccup on the first attempt.

 @LukeBurgie: Lol same. That is STEEP!

 First one was the best, and the deer running in front was cool on the 3rd video.
  • 4 1
 Reece Wallace and Dirt surf mountain POV win. The rest sucked donkey.

 Clearly no one understands this criteria, it's not just about strapping a gopro on and riding for 30 seconds. I'll wait until I see someone who actually gets some interesting angles to judge.
  • 3 0
 You realize it has to be unedited right? That means 1 angle - helmet, chest, bar or an "interesting angle" like the one floating above the guy that will probably be unwatchable.

 How can one confirm that their video has been submitted and entered into the contest? I'm pretty sure it worked, but I can't see the vid on the "All Entries" page.

 I thought of the Little Prince when I saw the fusion video. More yap than brap but still interesting.

 "submit" button doesn't work on video upload, with or without flash...
