Burning Question: Why Don't More World Cup Downhill Teams Sponsor a Woman?
@jax888: Agree. But we won't ask for Brandon Semenuk money if we eventually hit those lines doing one-handers.

Yeah. A woman who for some reason doesn't share your views is a terrible person who only got lucky to get her corporate job. Yeah. Screw hardwork and talent. Sessler is just lucky coz she didn't agree with me.

Burning Question: Why Don't More World Cup Downhill Teams Sponsor a Woman?
There are women in mtb who have way more opportunities than men even if they've never sniffed a podium. Hannah Barnes has made a lucrative career travelling and taking photos with her Stumpjumper and she will never reach the podium of an EWS race. You could say that Specialized has given her too many opportunities in fact but Hannah found a niche and added value to her sponsors and the community. So good for her. It's easy to blame sexist men "at the top" for not giving women opportunities when there are smart and savvy women like Hannah Barnes who have proven that there are opportunities out there. But no one gives it to you. You have to take it.

@Kapricorn: There are equal amount of men and women yes but why aren't chanel spending more money marketing to men when they could squeeze more money i that potential male market. There are many factors that affect a sport's entertainment value. Athleticism, competitiveness and most importantly, the characters and personalities within that sport. Yes, speed is not only the difference but it's also a big deal. Watching Aaron Gwin smash rock gardens at mach speed is more entertaining than a slower version of Rachel's. Story and drama and the personalities within that sport is a driving factor in attracting a particular audience. I guarantee you, if a female good looking version of ratboy who rides equally well and stylishly with a personality to match will be the highest paid mtber in the world and brands will line-up to sign her. But will Santa Cruz sign her to sell more Nomads or Stegas? That's another question.

11 Downhill Bikes From the Windrock Pro GRT
We've reached a point that it's now more unusual to see a 27.5 DH bike than a 29er. How time flies.

Hell, they even want a women's tour de france with equal exposure and prize money but with less stages and less steep mountains.

@mtbikeaddict: Exactly. I don't understand why there is always a call to favor a group at the expense of the other. Keep it open and let the market and audience decide. Women's beach volleyball gets way more coverage at the Olympics and WC, sponsors and money than men's beach volleyball. Hell, they broadcast the women's matches live while only show a 60 second clip of male games. There are no calls to "equalize" that sport now is there? In the end, the best product gets the best rewards.
