ziga pandur retiring Žiga has left the building. Kind of a sad moment, but it opens a whole new chapter! #Repost @zigapandur ・・・ Time flies really fast! I vividly remember my first racing steps as they would happen just a few days ago, but actually that happened quite a few years ago, probably a decade ago. After 8 years of racing mountain bikes at the highest level I've decided to stop actively racing downhill. I am still passionate and motivated about mountain biking as when I started riding bikes, but over the time priorities had changed and I feel that now it's perfect time to finish this chapter in life and start a new one. My racing career had lots of ups and downs, wins and bad races, but overall I had lots of great and unforgettable moments, I've met a lot of awesome people, travelled to a lot of beautiful places, learned a lot of new things and had ‘hell of a good time’ doing it. I would first like to thank my parents for all their unconditional support, then to Tine, Grega and Rok for being behind me all the way from the beginning of my racing. I've been part of Unior Tools Team from start of my career and also from beginning of the team. It was a pleasure and great honor being part of it and to see how the team has grown over the years. Then also to all sponsors and friends who believed in me and supported me through my racing career and also to all fans, without you guys, racing bikes wouldn't be that much fun! This is not a goodbye note, I'll see you somewhere on the bike and eventually also on the races, but next time on the spectators side of the tape ✌️ Photo: @klemenhumar @uniortoolsteam A post shared by Unior Tools Team (@uniortoolsteam) on Nov 8, 2017 at 10:31am PST

i'd have to think/hope private rides were not included. it wouldn't be too hard to figure out if you knew you were the only one to strava something and marked it private only to see it show up.

i zoomed in on the live heat map and selected water activities near where i live. i'm assuming the bulk of these are SUP users or even boats, but the local surf breaks are pretty obvious. #mindboggling

Western/Central Europe is on fire and Greenland looks like a nice place if you want to be outdoors and alone! I don't use Strava, but this data is so fascinating. As you'll read (or not) in the PR below, this is data from everyone using Strava ... more »

you guys are more on it than the CIA, FBI and MI6 combined, here's it is, officially official even though we were given a 6am embargo time. since it was posted elsewhere already (probably b/c you guys blew the cover!) we're posting an hour early.
