HD HERO Selected as Official Camera for Crankworx Productions

Half Moon Bay, CA – July 29, 2010 – As the summer mountain biking season peddles into full speed, the best in slopestyle and downhill find themselves at the premier events; Claymore Challenge, Crankworx Colorado and the Kokanee Crankworx Whistler. And as maker of the world’s bestselling and highest performance wearable HD video cameras, GoPro joins this elite group as the official wearable camera and sponsor.

The Claymore Challenge, which was held on July 17th at Highland Mountain Bike Park in Northfield, New Hampshire was witness to the massive air antics of some of the best riders in the world and GoPro riders showed up big! Finishing first was Brandon Semenuk – and placing second was Cam McCaul with Aaron Chase sealing a sixth place finish amongst a talented pack of twenty-two.

Up next is Crankworx Colorado held in Winter Park from July 29 – August 1 and The Kokanee Crankworx at Whistler, BC from August 7 -15. GoPro was selected as the official wearable camera for these events with footage from GoPro HD HEROs being used during the broadcasts, which can be watched at Crankworx.com.

Crankworx visitors can find GoPro’s tent at each event where we will be showcasing our award winning HD HERO camera.

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3
