    Not getting into this debate again, I see it as the more hype it gets, the more people want a piece of the pie. Skate shops opening by non-skaters, sport shops wanting skateboard brands when clueless people come asking for them after watching it on TV and they can place massive orders over a SOS. GBH went from making garden furniture to some how being skate park builders when all the council money was flying about and made some of the worst parks I've seen.

    [/over the debate though, it's in the Olympics, like Trump won and Brexit happened]

    Yeah but cycling doesn't have a fixation with 'core cyclist owned & run' companies and industry politics to the same extent

    I know but if he gets to rep all his sponsors on the most watched event in the world, he'll take some pocket change, haha.

    Clever investment for AOC as he will definitely win a medal.

    There was controversy in Australia about spending on the last Olympics as the spend was massive but the medal haul wasn't - assuming that's why the article has been removed as perhaps Aussies are kicking off about it? Who knows...

    Chris (finally) diversified with his podcast.

    I think a lot of companies should give up.

    I don't hate anything about him, but yeah, I'm not a big fan of that. He's still one of the best.

    I do too. I hate what it is but seeing how consistent those guys are hypes me. Makes me want to try harder. And it makes some dudes like Ishod even better.

    While he came across as an interesting guy in interviews, all the Leonard Cohen tunes I heard were boring variations on the same boring theme of a man talking over music and a chorus-line of female voices for backing vocals.
    Singer/songwriter performing solo with an acoustic guitar is generally shit.
    Converse shoes look retarded especially when worn with highwater jeans.

    I wonder why half of all board companies even bother.

    I would never have voted for Trump, but I think he is less of a genuine threat to world peace than Hillary would have been.
