Throwback Thursday: Peaty Wins Fort William 2005
The Wharncliffe section at the end of the clip, from the Earthed video, makes me want to ride as much now as it did 15 years ago!

Race & Accessibility in the Mountain Bike Community
@orientdave: I'm not naming names but I'm astounded you are defending everything we are trying to get away from. Certain individuals were deliberately controversial, argumentative, dismissive of others opinions, reactive and when someone replied with calmness and reason it often got personal. Calling someone a R.E.T.A.R.D is never acceptable. Perhaps at times we should all consider: https://www.verywellmind.com/an-overview-of-the-dunning-kruger-effect-4160740 None of us have all the answers to this massively complex problem the world has at the moment, but perhaps we could all start with some tolerance, kindness, reflection, introspection, humility, respect for others and good humour.

@rideonjon: Haha, nice reply! I think lockdown is making me grumpy, although I have ridden my bike loads as we have been allowed to do that in the UK :)

@rideonjon: Frances?? Just cant be doing with the extreme sport bro macho attitude, to many people think it makes you cool or tough by association, then they always want to dis every other sport and especially football. There usually about 15 though not 44!

Take note: Football players play between 40 - 60 90+ minute games per season, cover 10-12k in games, faster players making regular sprints of 85% on grass of Olympic sprinters. They train 5+ times per week, often at higher intensity than actual matches. They may also play 10 - 12 international matches. They do lots of unseen community work and have contributed massive sums of cash to the current crisis. Some like Juan Mata (ManU and ex Spanish international) contribute a percentage of there wages each month) Catastrophic lower limb injuries are not uncommon, often similar to those seen in two wheeled sports. From an age ago but google David Boost (Coventry) injury. Unfortunately head injuries are common and there is growing evidence of early onset dementia with ex football players. Shoulder injuries, arm and facial also regular and due to pressure to play they are often at 35/36 left with the knees of OAPs. Tragically players loose there lives mostly through undetected heart conditions that in normal life cause no issues but can be deadly for football players at all levels. Nobody likes the play acting you are alluding to but unfortunately it is cultural is some countries - I don't like people straight lining tracks to get a decent strava time and dont get me started on roadies and doping. There is lots wrong with football but at it's most basic level it's a fantastic, simple, inclusive game. And just cos it's it's not an 'extreme sport' don't ever under estimate the mental or physical toughness of the players.
