 Sick to see PEOPLE on bikes, I don’t know why a lot of people care about gender so much. It’s sick to see anyone shredding having a good time.

 I get your point and I would agree if we lived in an ideal world. But in the real world where women athletes get a tiny fraction of the support and the exposure the men do, I think stuff like this is the very least we can do. I even wish for a lot more of that kind of stuff until the day it won’t be needed anymore.

 @t1000: I don't know man, because we are on a website for mtb I will only be talking about mtb not the wnba or something like that. I honestly think that In mtb women often receive more recognition than men, this is less true in the gravity world but in xc I have seen more talk about women than men. I just think that people are people and riders are riders, but in our identity crazy world people think otherwise.

 @t1000: not that the recognition is a bad thing, I just think that judging people by identify is stupid.

 We all grew so accustomed to seeing the guys compete at rampage and doing superhuman stuff that it takes a while to actually appreciate what these girls are doing.
If you distance yourself from what you've seen some guys do and actually take a measured look at some of the hits in these videos, they really are riding some pretty heavy stuff =D

 I don't wish to offend anyone, but there isn't a freeride contest for women, only this progression stuff, which is cool I suppose to progress the sport, but doesnt everyone deserve the chance to compete

 Watching the this just gave me exactly the same feeling I get watching Rampage - the buzz from seeing people pushing the envelope of their sport. Massive respect, this was an inspirational event.
