Morgane Charre Not Selected to Race 2017 World Champs
This fucked up idea that women have to prove they won't embarrass the national federation simply because they are women is not uniquely French, nor is it unique to this sport. It is appalling and it happens constantly. Kicking athletes of both sexes to the curb when they take time to recover physically and mentally from an injury is also universally popular. The UCI could also easily fix this particular problem by mandating that each federation at least attempt to fill every available quota spot if enough athletes are available who meet the criteria. But they won't.

Just The Privateers: EWS - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@cheetamike: Whistler still has grocery stores right? Pretty easy to take care of most breakfasts, snacks and lunches yourself with just a hotel mini fridge. Mix in some decent but not exorbitant sit down dinners, a few donair or pizza nights and the occasional grocery store rotisserie chicken, bag of salad mix, etc and keeping the average around $25 a day shouldn't be too hard. Someone who was thinking ahead might pack a hot plate and pot, opening up even more options for savings. Or you could just eat 5 $5 meals from El Furniture Warehouse every day, which would be survivable, if repetitive.

Just The Privateers: EWS - Crankworx Whistler 2017
@mrtoodles: 3k in flights??? Maybe if you're coming from Pakistan. Western Canada to just about anywhere in Europe runs 700 - 1300 CAD round trip. Tack on an extra $200 for Oceania. A bike adds $50-$150 each way depending on the airline. Food should cost ~$25 per day, max. Hotels will run 120-150/night during Crankworx but if you're smart you're sharing, so let's say $65. Without looking it up I'd guess a transfer runs about $100 each way from YVR at the high end. Insurance is a tough one because it's so variable, but I recently spent 2 weeks climbing and skiing in Europe and insured myself for about $120 so let's roll with that. Race entry is what, like $300? That totals out to roughly $3000-4000 CAD for 2 weeks in Whistler, including the race and without in any way dirtbagging it. Add in some discretionary spending like booze and lift tickets and you might, MIGHT get above $5000 for the full 2 weeks. Just coming for the race would be cheaper, but the cost per night would be much higher. People get taken for a ride in places like Whistler because they don't take the time to familiarize themselves with the place they're traveling to. They then end up throwing money at logistical issues that planning could have prevented. It doesn't help that Whistler and other such tourist traps are very well designed to take advantage of that fact.

Mountain Bikers Help Save Original Red Bull Rampage Site
@Boondocker390: A golf course looks like a natural disaster when they're finished, too.

Sweet shot, but the way the blue saturation on the water has been jacked up kind of kills it for me. Especially once I noticed the boat at the far right that has also been turned bright blue.

Oregon Will Be First US State to Tax Bicycles for Transportation Projects
@rivercitycycles: Yikes man. Must be nice to feel so much better than those homeless assholes trying to stay warm during the winter. How dare they? Have you considered the idea that maybe homelessness, addiction and crime are symptoms of deeper societal problems and perhaps not caused by the existence of light rail?

Sigh. The rider is moving away down the trail. The roost cloud is not. Does that help?
