Podcast: Gary Fisher On Bringing Mountain Biking to the Masses
I think mountain biking overall shouldn't be marketed as the sport for everyone. Some disciplines could be up to a certain limit, however its a difficult thing to know where to draw the line. Bike parks marketing themselves as "for everyone" is a huge mistake if the only criteria needed to be met to use ANY trail is to wear a helmet, have a bike and buy a lift pass. Sadly last summer it happened in Sweden for example that one guy died on the trails in quite a famous bike park, that started a huge sandstorm by the sensationalist media and the mourning family. Everyone was revolted that the features are way to dangerous even though based on pictures it was a relatively small drop(~1m) where the accident happened. If mountain biking needs to be "for the masses" than the risks involved have need to be communicated as well clearly! That being said I agree that sadly it isn't a sport for the masses, however that comes down mostly to the incredibly high prices in this industry.
