XC Action from the 2018 Commonwealth Games - Video
Agreed. Anton comes across as all class, and Gaze comes across as douche. Seems Gaze has been made aware that it's more than winning that gets/keeps sponsor dollars.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@fastedjones: It is so wrong that with a share price that's been sliding ever since that first IPO boost, that he should take $1m+. The company has been a financial disaster, the CEO should be replaced by a business person, and have the current guy move into CTO or some similar role. If the stock gets much lower, then Sony or similar could buy GoPro and shut the company down, and just keep the name.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@cueTIP: Yup, and going to a Hero 6 thing just doesnt make sense ... right? I mean, as the camera's are getting so fancy that the pc needed to good editing is getting expensive too ... Better to stick with an older GoPro and spend the money on a trip somewhere to use it. :)

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
Shares are down to $6, and there are no dividends. He made all his profit at the IPO, and now he sees the value of his shares plummet faster than a drone with a faulty battery pack. Still ... I think he must be worth a good $400m+ still.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@valhallascott: Yeah, totally agree. Even the camera's don't seem to drive enough sales ... I mean, who uses them so much that they upgrade often? Most people I know have shot some stuff, and then realized it takes perfect conditions and a ton of editing to produce what you see on the adverts. Add to all of that, how on earth did GoPro have 1250 staff (and move before they cut the media thing last year). That's 1000 staff to design and market a camera ... That is absurd. I wish I hadn't bought shares in them now.

IMBA Opposes Bill to Allow Mountain Bikes in Wilderness
I agree with you @jncrider, and what's worse, is that IMBA gets a lot of funding from industry. So even if all of us mountain bikers stop supporting them, many of the big brands will still be cutting them a check each year. I think it's time we found out which brand gives the most to IMBA, and start a campaign to get that brand to back STC!!!!

IMBA Opposes Bill to Allow Mountain Bikes in Wilderness
The bill lets the local land manger decide on which trails to allow bikes. No land manager is going to open up a hiking trail that would in effect be a downhill trail to bikers. Nobody's building a north shore structure in wilderness. We already have bike parts etc, what we don't have is long back country trails. Have you followed bike packing? If a land manager opens up a 100 mile trail that goes off into the wilderness back country, once you get 10 miles into it, you'll never see a hiker. There are many areas where bikers were riding, and now the trails are wilderness study areas, so bikes are banned. Check out the 400+ miles of trails lost in MT like this. By all accounts, people saw a couple of hikers a year on these trails ... but now there are no bikes and just a few hikers. If we (American people) want other people to be engaged in nature/wilderness and protect lands, the best way is to get people to use the lands. If there's a trail that isn't used much, is of a soil type that bikes (or horses) won't rut it out, then we should be letting the cyclists ride there.

IMBA Opposes Bill to Allow Mountain Bikes in Wilderness
I always thought IMBA did great work until I learned what they've actually done. Ever since they started working to block STC, I've been sending money to STC. It just seems that STC are worried that STC will overtake them and get the industry money that goes to IMBA. Bikes in wilderness should be at the discretion of the local land manager. There are more cases than not where bikes would damage the land less than the horses that are allowed there, and the trails are not well used (and therefore no conflicts with hikers or horses would exist). IMBA, you're a relic, and STC is the future!!
