Behind Cam McCaul's VW Adventure - Video
@Jokesterwild: brand loyalty definitely ain't stupid but you can get lucky/unlucky with any cars. In my experience Subaru have been a nightmare with head gasket failure and crazy expensive repair prices. And hg failure is very common on Subaru's. And their diesels are bad too. VW/Audi are renowned for poor reliability. I don't mind small issues but it's when the cost of repair becomes too expensive that I have a problem.

So who exactly do you think pays his wages? Who pays for all the "free" content on this website? Sponsors, that's who.

Snapshot: Examining the UCI's Changes to World Cup DH Racing
@racerfacer: I think about this regularly. Acceptance of PC culture is insanity. You cannot socially engineer a nation. It has been tried and failed many times. You keep saying "as a society we can do a better job of welcoming women to top end sport". I just gave you a very clear example of how men of all ages make a talented girl very accepted within the sport. They do more to encourage her than they would for any young males. Yet somehow they need to do even more? Now how exactly is the uci going to change the fabric of society enough that more girls pick up bikes? Are women going to stop wearing makeup suddenly to ensure more tomboyish girls don't feel left out when they do something mucky? Unlikely. Are they going to stop using sexuality when it suits them to ensure they aren't written off as a sideshow? Again unlikely. Hannah Barnes is a pro mountain biker based on her looks alone. Can you name one male mountain biker who can say that? How can you have equality when the opportunities can never be the same? Let's look at modelling. Why do female models earn so much more than men? Should we just force more men into fashion shows in the name of equality? And while we are at it should we insist they are paid the same as the female supermodels despite the fact no one gives a shit about them? Women are every bit as responsible for society being the way it is as men. This denial of reality in favour of a hypothetical ideal is in my opinion completely bizarre.

@KeithReeder: I've never been on the breitbart website. Can't really see your point there. Is that your response to everyone that you may have an inkling disagrees with you? Subliminally accuse them of being some sort of subversive white nationalist by associating them with a website known for having people like that on it? Attack the messenger and not the message is a great tactic of those who do things for "the greater good". If you have a point make it, otherwise stay quiet and try to learn something. Like a civilised person.

@racerfacer: no, I don't see anything wrong with that. I see it as a logical outcome of demand and supply. I know one girl who races at a very high level. I have known her for years. She is now starting to beat a lot of the men and when she does I never see or hear any negative comments from those who have been beaten. She has received massive support from the male mountain bikers in this region and we all look forward to seeing her on the world stage. Why has this happened? Because she is dedicated and she wants it. There are simply no other girls like her out where I am. She also has probably the greatest earning potential of all mountain bikers in the country because of how few girls actually mountain bike at her level. (I'm not Canadian BTW) Don't you think that maybe, her determination and success is what is going to encourage other girls to try the sport? Or do you think we should encourage girls to put in substandard effort and just allow them to enter simply because of a quota and this concept that they deserve to be there based on nothing other than their chromosome. I can guarantee you that there is one girl out there who looks at Rachel Atherton and thinks "I'm going to smash her some day". Putting girls who don't have that attitude on the circuit makes a mockery of the sport and damages her chances. How is seeing undeserving women getting annihilated by Rachel by a minute going to encourage girls to give it a go? People look to the winners for inspiration, not the losers. Especially not if they are only there so we don't appear sexist. God I hate PC culture...logic just goes out the window.

Well this is the mentality that is continually being pushed in the media and by general feminists/socialist do gooders. That women need artificial help to reach the top. It's no wonder they think like that in a world that is constantly telling them it is the system that is against them. Then one woman, Rachel , who doesn't think like that and just goes out and focuses on her job annihilates them. Socialism and equality of outcomes is a ridiculous concept that hurts everyone. If women want to get better exposure then more of them need to look to Rachel and be like her, it's not the "oh so oppressive" system that is at fault.

Best Bike Moments of 2016 - Video
@Husker2112: "Young people have a lot more influence on pretty much everything now, for good or bad." Yeah....no. Young people do a hell of a lot of screaming now when they think people disagree with them though. It's quite terrifying how quickly people under the age of 25 will label you as scum for disagreeing with them on a relatively minor point. I think young people have never had less influence on the world. Liking things and posting comments on social media doesn't count as effective change. I'm not giving out about to you by the way.

Stepping Out of the Pain With Gee Atherton
@nickkk: "wafting a few crushed squirrel bollocks and banana peels over him whilst listening to Creed.." One of the funniest descriptions I think I have ever read. Take a bow.
