It's an interesting article and a worthwhile debate.

Snapshot: A View of Women's Mountain Biking From the Industry
We need to encourage more young girls to ride bikes (we need more doing sport in general). I run a school MTB club for 8-14 and we occasionally get a couple of girls come along: more usually it's 15-20 boys. When biking stops being seen as 'a boy thing' then I think we'll be on a path to success. I don't yet have an answer for this. But I do see more women riding bike these days which is great. Even better I see people tapping into this enthusiasm, Our local 'Southern Enduro' series teamed up with a local coach to start women's specific sessions and I think they managed to triple their race entry. Being a newbie in a competitive field of 8-10 women (including an EWS racer) is really intimidating, but being one of 25+ gives you a chance to have some fun and gain some confidence. So for me It's all about grass roots and 'critical mass'. We have some awesome women role models, especially here in the UK, and you often see them encouraging and mentoring new riders. What we need is to expand the pool of talent they are working with - the few really talented riders will grow the professional sport, and hopefully everyone else will have a great time on their bikes.

Pinkbike Poll: How Often Do You Crash?
I'm crash rarely, and it's mostly because I'm riding within my limits. From my point of view I AM riding hard enough to enjoy myself - and when the conditions are good I'll try to push my limits. As an over-50 I'm prepared to trade a slow pace of skills progression for continued good health.
