Rachel Pageau is OnlyFans' Latest Sponsored Mountain Biker

Feb 20, 2024
by Sarah Moore  

In news we weren't sure was true back in January of 2023, OnlyFans signed Lewis Buchanan. They also sponsored Stefan Garlicki early last year. Now, the digital media platform best known for adult content has picked up Canadian enduro and downhill racer Rachel Pageau. The brand continues to at least appear to work on cleaning up its reputation and expanding its offering by attracting music, fitness and sports creators.

bigquotes2024 is gonna be a year! Fired up to be supported by @onlyfans to race my bike around the world this season. Catch more behind the scenes content about my life, travels and preparation for World Cup racing!Rachel Pageau

Pageau's OnlyFans account can be found here, but you'll have to pay $5.99 per month to access content on it.

OnlyFans now has over 120 million registered users and has paid out a total of over $5 billion to creators since its inception in 2016, according to TechReport.com. The site has an average of 420 million monthly active users and an estimated 1.25 million daily active users.

Pageau took top honours in the Costa Rican Open of Downhill this past weekend and so it looks like, while Lewis Buchanan may have been banned from competing at UCI events because of his OnlyFans sponsorship, she has not encountered an issue as of yet or is willing to pay the fine to race.

The regulation that Buchanan was found to have violated in the official UCI Cycling Regulations document falls under "Sponsorship". Article 1.1.089 reads:

Without prejudice of the applicable law, no brand of tobacco, spirits, pornographic products or any other products that might damage the image of the UCI or the sport of cycling in general shall be associated directly or indirectly with a licence-holder, a UCI team or a national or international cycling competition. As defined in the present article, a spirit is a beverage with a content in alcohol of 15% or more.

Breaches of articles 1.1.089 and 1.1.090 may be sanctioned as follows:
- Refused start and/or fine of CHF 1’000 to 25’000 for a licence-holder (art. 1.1.089 only);
- Refusal or withdrawal of the registration, refused start and/or fine of CHF 5’000 to 500’000 for a team;
- Refusal or removal from the calendar and/or fine of CHF 5’000 to 500’000 for an organiser.

We reached out to Pageau to see if that is something she is concerned about and she said:

bigquotesThe whole World Cup situation isn't fully settled yet, the UCI and OnlyFans are still in talks and are exploring options. We will find common ground allowing me to race World Cups for sure. All in all, this new sponsorship will greatly help me focus on training and racing my bike and everyone at OnlyFans is so nice and supportive, it's a great partnership to be in.Rachel Pageau

From what we can see on Buchanan's Roots and Rain profile, it doesn't look like he has competed in any UCI-sanctioned events since January 2023 when he announced his OnlyFans sponsorship. We've reached out to see if he's been able to reach an agreement with the UCI ahead of the 2024 season.

At a time when many athletes are being forced to step back from racing due to lack of sponsorship, it's great to see that Pageau has found a way to make her racing dreams come true and we wish her all the best with the partnership.

Editors' note: we're reporting on this because it's MTB news and also because we reported on Lewis' news last year. We're reminding everyone to not be gross in the comments, we'll be handing out bans for sexualizing athletes—if in doubt, don't be a creepy weirdo. Smile

 My friend Alia started her OF ( onlyfans.com/u306404531?rec=26965750 ) as a means to supplement her travel expenses for international rope rescue competitions. Airfare for the current event happening now in Brazil was on the order of $8,000 as I recall. Her team of all women get invited to a lot of the international grimpday series events but since sponsors in climbing don't really pay any better than in mountain biking, they're pretty much all doing this at their own expense, and that's why they can't only afford two or three events each year.

If you think that was just then, watch Icarus, and then reflect on how the 2023 TdF smashed EPO era speed records for climbing etc. left and right. The "Medical Program" of each and every UCI World Tour team is a PED sponsorship. There is no way to get that genie back in the bottle in endurance sport.

 @axelerate: If they'd strictly ban performance enhancing drugs as well, they'd ban any athlete sponsored by an energy drink like Red Bull, Rockstar and Monster. Heck, they'd ban the Gehrig twins too for making coffee.

Not too familiar with Only Friend but considering it is primarily North Americans commenting here, they're just not that well known over here in Europe I guess. I only heard of them when they started sponsoring Lewis so maybe they're just trying to build a different reputation in other markets by sponsoring more creators outside the porn scene. What UCI is doing here isn't quite helping anyone. As for the reputation of UCI, what they're known primarily for now is for extorting money from podium finishers (when they rock up in clothes the UCI doesn't seem fit) and changing rules last minute yet not responding to questions from both media as well as the rider union (shifting certain XC athletes up in the WC start order) among others. The reputation of the UCI really won't be hampered by whatever sponsorship athletes negotiate to make ends meet.

 The UCI doesn't organise events. The UCI only sanctions events (essentially lends it's name to it).
Events are individually organised and controlled overall by Discovery. The americans at Discovery are the people you need to be angry with for ruining the world cup series.
The UCI has expertise in areas such as controlled substance testing, which can only be a good thing for the sport.

 when you get the text message for authorization code for a fresh subscription it lists a corporate name for a UK business that does their CC processing. The statement on your card simply has OF as the description, with a London UK address and postal code.

My friend Alia ( onlyfans.com/u306404531?rec=26965750 ) started one a year and a half ago to help fund her international technical rope rescue competition climbing events. Hell her entire team has to sell team jerseys for each competition to supplement themselves, as they're all paying their own way to events and airfare is expensive when you're flying from Surrey BC (in Alia's case) to Sao Paulo, Brazil, as the current Grimpday event is taking place at right now. They're the first ALL female team invited to the international grimpday competition series, including at the world championships in Belgium last year. I think her airfare each way for 2 people for the current competition is in the order of about $8,000 and there isn't going to be that sort of money paid out even if their team won. One of the women flies in from Taiwan each event, another is coming from the USA, another Belgium, one is in Panama and I forget where the other one comes from.

 Came to say exactly this, I mean I kinda get the porn thing (even tho there's free porn out there) but what do followers get from an athlete or an artist that they can't from insta? So it's exclusive content? Well.... I can't see that sitting well with other sponsors? I mean, we (other sponsors) pay you to promote our product, but now that promotion is behind a paywall??? It amazes me, in the online world what consumers will actually shell out for as much as what companies are offering when it's available for free elsewhere

 Typically you just pay because you like what a someone (or a group) is doing and would like to support them. I support a French comic artist called David Revoy because I appreciate his work and his tutorials, I support Manjaro linux because that's what my computer runs on, I support Signal because it is a convenient messaging service (and required to communicate with the school of my daughter) etc. You get pretty much nothing in return and that's ok. It is like the artist in the street. You can enjoy it for free but if you appreciate what they're doing it doesn't hurt to drop a coin in that hat or guitar case. It isn't anything new, really.

 People should get off their high horses and be happy that riders are getting sponsorship from outside the sport.

Nearly every interview or podcast from people in the bike industry say that the sport needs outside sponsorship to survive/grow, especially in times like these and yet when people do find the deals to support themselves and their families all the biking forums are up in arms because they don’t like it. Get sponsored by Only Fans - “it’s a porn site” (apart from all the artists, content creators, etc that aren’t adult content).

It seems that all people want to do is whinge and bitch about everything and can’t be happy that other people are being successful.

 This puritanical mindset needs to go and everyone pearl clutching is absolutely ridiculous. This think of the children is just typical BS that is used to force the world into a very narrow mindset. There is porn everywhere and especially everywhere on the internet. Kids know this and kids will find it without the help of a site that keeps all the porn locked behind a paywall. Even those of us who are old enough to remember a time before the internet were accessing porn pretty easily and we actively sought it out. To my fellow parents if you are concerned then sit down and have a discussion with your kids and discuss what and why you are concerned with viewing it. And if you do a good enough job the kids will make the proper decision for themselves and if you would rather hide them away rather than educate, this never works by the way, then lock down your home network with parental controls.

 It's interesting that spirits are banned from sponsorship but beer is ok and of course there is the champagne they hand out to winner. Kinda seems like a double standard as most champagne is ~12-15% ABV and there are some beers out there which are over the 15% ABV threshold that the UCI has set for spirits.

May seem off topic but she is also sponsored by Oskar Blues Brewery, the makers of Dale's Pale Ale. You can argue whether or not Dale's is a good beer but I'm going to buy it regardless cause it has my name on it.

 the $6.99 could be looked at in a different light... You could look at it as a way of helping out a rider who wants to continue, think of it not as Pay-per-view, but helping someone out who can't race without additional funding. It's easy to get all weird about OnlyFans but if 50 people put in $6.99 a month it could be the difference between the rider getting to a race or not. You don't even need to view the content, just help the rider.

 OnlyFans could perfectly well have spun up separate copies of their site or even company called something else OnlyArts, OnlySports, etc. to avoid all the inevitable controversy and complications that would come from mixing adult-only content with general content. If you were cynical you might think the reason they didn't do that is because they want you to have a reason you can justify to either yourself of your parent/significant other for getting an account - "it's just so I can watch mountain biking...". And then further down the line, you have a login, they have your/your parent's credit card details and you are all set for adding some more adult content too.

 Not that I’m a fan of the UCI and their decisions but at the end of the day the they have the right to who they want to associate their brand with and a handful of real athletes will always live in the shadows of what only fans really is.

 Idk man, how about athletes with Marlboro patches on their jerseys. I can see why certain sponsors aren't desirable. End of the day, it's the UCIs choice, they don't want to harm their own reputation. Too bad brands like Dewalt or Ryobi don't start sponsoring athletes.

 @DylanH93: interesting take on those tool brands. Seems like a major tool brand could advertise and we bikers would start to think their Allen wrenches are made for bikes just like park tools lol

 Even if it just riding content her link tree states. 'This link contains OnlyFans content, a platform limited to users and visitors of 18 and over.' Should we be pushing adult content in front of young eyes even more than it already is? Just my 10c
  • 27 14
 How is it pushing adult content if it’s just riding videos? Just because Onlyfans has an 18+ policy doesn’t mean it’s all adult content. If you click that link to her OF page there is no exposure to anything inappropriate.

 @Diesel2007: yea why not. I would evaluate the safety of any general area before leaving my kids anywhere, but the simple presence of a strip club alone would not be a deciding factor.

What do you think kids are stupid? There was a strip club not far from where I grew up. We went to other stores and businesses near it. Drove by it all the time. We all knew what it was as kids.

 @PregoRoll: Except on a pay to subscribe website where if you want to view any other content from other users you have to sign up and pay for a different subscription. Kids could just type in 'nude' on any search engine and get what you all are are worried about here at no charge w/ no sign up. Maybe search engines should be banned for anyone younger than 18?

 There is a UFC fighter named Angela Hill that has an OF account and she only posts fight training stuff. She talks about it a lot on her IG, but goes out of her way to let people know not to expect booty shots. LOL. Just simply having something like an OF sponsorship is nothing like putting actual sexual content right in front of kids. Not even close.

 @CustardCountry: @sino428: I just googled, from a blank slate PC, "ONLY FANS". Clicked the first that came up on Google - which was the first page on Onlyfans.com.

These were 3 posts showing first:
Spent a Week in Vegas with 8 Adult Stars | Plug Talk TV
Go behind the scenes of the AVN Adult Awards & Expo with @plugtalk! Find out what it's like to see over 3,000 fans, and take home some awards! "
@newlolabunny invites you to a calming ASMR experience with the new Apple Vision Pro! She gently unpacks and explores every aspect of this technological marvel!

"Riley Reid Full Interview | Holly Randall Unfiltered
@holly is sharing a special interview with the one and only Riley Reid, where she discusses her rise to the top, how she stayed humble while becoming one of the biggest pon stars of all time, and how being a mom has completely"

Onlyfans found it suitable to show these 3 posts. I never typed in "nuude" "p0rn" or anything else related to adult content - just "onlyfans".

This is my point. Yes kids can, but shouldnt, access any type of content. Normalizing adult content to a kid who is not equipped with the tools to understand that this shit is not real and should not be something to look up to.

When athletes push Onlyfans logo and webpage to kids who look up to them - they are also pushing explicit content straight into their faces. If Onlyfans is "ok" to sponsor athletes ...why not just go straight to the core and call up Pornhub and ask for money in exchange for a audience they cannot market to.Racers gets their bills paid and get to race. Which is a great result...and never mind side effects.

Mabye McDonalds will be next to sponsor an event with the Mcflurry rock garden and the Super Size finish booter. That would be awesome Starting gate is an giant McD logo

 @pnyberg: Not sure what your point is. None of the adult content can be accessed on Onlyfans without signing up and paying for it.

Do you just want to pretend adult content doesn't exist? I grew up in a much different time before the internet is what it is now, but even in the print days they still sold the dirty magazines right there at the news stands and bookstores at the mall, the local convenience store, etc. Sure you had to be 18 to buy it but it was right there being sold out in the open.

Maybe you should take the time to educate your kids about this type of stuff (since you know it does exist) instead of trying to hide them from it and pretend it doesnt exist.

 @Diesel2007: why not? It’s not like they’d see anything and I’m pretty sure the door staff wouldn’t let my kids in as they’d be underage. We’re not prudish in our family so by the time they’re old enough to be left in an arcade unattended I’m sure they’ll know about exotic dancers. It’s a job, a job that pays well

 The athlete needed the funding and took it. What doesn’t sit right with us is the deliberate age and gender demographic targeting this brand has set sights on. Our sport is loaded with youth. Children for heaven’s sake. Nothing like enrolling ‘em young, eh?

 What's the difference with this and with energy drinks that are extremely bad for kids and bike clothing made in a sweat-shop somewhere thousands of miles away. Absolutely no difference whatsoever. It's all money. Get used to it.

 Just to be clear: riders on Only Fans aren't sponsored by Only Fans. They're getting their money from fans. And only adults can sign on to Only Fans to support the riders. So no children will be getting exposed to sexual content. And in any case - I have to scratch my head at the fact Americans are such prudes in regards to nudity and sexual content but seem totally OK with exposing them to guns and violence. Nothing like enrolling 'em young on the violence path, huh?

 @Fill-Freakin: Im not sure if thats correct. She says she is sponsored by OF. This looks like she is promoting the platform as well as her own content on it.

Not that it changes anything about the rest of your comment which was correct.

 Pornhub is a very different online service, it is just porn and adult content. Whereas lots of artists and content creators use Only Fans to support themselves without adult content.

Lots of people subscribe to these people to show support for them and get exclusive content in return. It’s not all foot fetishes and gamer girls showing their boobs.

 @CustardCountry: well I wasn't expecting a response from anyone, let alone anyone describing people on only fans as content creators and artists so I'm not one to dismiss someone's comments straight away without taking a look.....Google search, home page....Kerry katona is one of the people on the home page.....adult content.....I'm out!

 More people who know she is now thanks to this article than did before probably. I know my friend Alia's OF ( onlyfans.com/u306404531?rec=26965750 ) gets a bump in members after each international climbing competition as the male members of other teams friend her on FB and see her OF link. But what's not to like about a 30 something 6' tall woman with bigger muscles than most men.

 hundred of millions of people. Its not all porn you know. Quite a few comedians who feel stiffled having to work clean to get Netflix shows and things do stuff on OF because they can swear and do as much dark humor as they want. The Roast of Bert Kreischer was done on OF last year for that very reason.
