Final Results: Leogang DH World Cup 2019
@enduroNZ: Dude,you do realise Cat's a woman,She's an awesome rider She's tough,courageous and inspirational and I'm privileged to have her as a close friend and riding buddy.Did you assume that she was male because most of the commenters on here are.Some of us aren't you know! .I don't agree with her on this one because I believe we don't know enough and actually I am not really sure it helps to have this discussion here because it can be such a toxic place.

@cbonnet:@cbonnet: Marine was only .24 seconds behind even after she had a crash.Thats pretty awesome and she is a fabulous rider who is really showing the promise this season she showed as a junior.I'd love to hear what her and the other racers perspective is because maybe thats all that really matters.They after all are the ones who are at the sharp end of all this.Maybe as we learn more the rules will change but rightly or wrongly we have a set of rules that the UCI has implemented and Kate is able to compete within them.I must admit i was more stoked about how Tracey rode and how Nina is killing it this season and maybe this discussion wouldn't be happening so much if Tahnee and Pompon were fit.I agree though,it is a distraction!!

Anton Cooper Criticizes Albstadt World Cup Course for Lack of Technicality
@Chonky13: This is so true.I rode for years thinking I could ride but when I took some lessons I very quickly found out that I actually couldnt!! This was a few years ago and the gains I've made and the trails I'm now able to ride have been amazing.And I'm still progressing and loving riding more than I have ever done.

Race Report: New Zealand DH Nationals #2
Ok so Kate develops as you say and then you take away testosterone (reduce it by a factor of 10-20) and if you know your physiology testosterone is necessary for both the development and maintainance of muscle mass So her muscle mass drops but her bone density and skeletal mass remain the same so she effectively has more mass to move around with less muscle. I’m not seeing an advantage here are you?Additionally her red cell count will drop meaning her oxygen transportation is less efficient.Not seeing much of an advantage here either.

Race Report: New Zealand DH Nationals #2
The field was two other riders!And Kate is considerably younger than Agatha who came second which is probably more relevant. The time gaps in women’s racing is always much greater than in the men’s.Take a look at the world cups.The top five men may have a spread of a few seconds but the women often have up to 30 seconds or more.Its a fact of life of having fewer of us competing at that high level and I honestly don’t think that Kate’s background is putting women off racing downhill.As for her having an advantage I’d be more inclined to trust the expertise of the sports doctors and administrators than a few mansplainers on pinkbike.
