Rachel Atherton Wins Action Sportsperson of the Year
@Matt76: I am sure they do, Rach is in a great place with their top tier sponsorship for sure, pro trainers, techs and riders on side daily but, remember Tahnee is still young and learning, Manon, she will come back I am sure as will Tracey - they have the desire, but with such a skinny field of top level athletes it seems like the gap is endless - I have higher hopes for a better season this year, especially if Miriam is fit and ready

@IllestT: Why say that, why desire to be downvoted, makes it seem like you are calling it out for attention - yes, there needs to be more competition, but for that to happen the teams need to man up and invest in female riders for the future, gonna take a little while, but, the female market is huge in MTB and the industry needs to start investing in support and schemes to get young riders in and trained up so we can have a true, level competition

Well there is aglory for sure, cant blame her for the lack of competition, but we can blame the industry for not getting on board women's downhill - that's the problem, how many of the big teams support or have female riders that are fully supported by sponsors etc, Tahnee - but only because her dad built a team around her, Manon, who is supported, Tracey, who only just got full support last year, pom, who I think is fully supported? either way its pretty pitiful, cant build a competition if no one is going to help and provide team and support and encouragement

yes and no - blame the industry for not giving women the support, many big name brands could do with some female team members, but no, even though womens section in MTB is one of the fastest growing markets, its the sponsorship that needs to get its arse in gear and give the support needed for it to thrive - cant create a competition when no one lets you play

@jgreermalkin: he was be a troll - he says anything crappy for a reaction .. just wait and see, and if you were not mesing about then you too are a making up facts to support your dislike, Manon did not have day job (but she is at Uni now), Tahnee didn't, Miriam was out due to injury - maybe you should be bitching about the lack of support for women and not blaming them - too many blokes that dont deserve to be sponsored and many women that would love to be, and should be to build up their n umbers, skills and commitment, to bring a full race schedule - jeez

Scorpion Bike Rack - First Look
Could this be used / adapted / have an add-one, to make it into a bike work stand?, so if you are at races or after a ride you can hang it up and work on it?
