Emma Pooley Article in Telegraph
Spot on if you ask me.
I went to the National RR this year and the start of the womens race was a shambles, the guy from BC Yorkshire saying "Hurry up girls, get organised" when he was at fault for making them wait at the wrong area etc.
Then during the RR the commentry was poor due to the location (The monks apparently wouldnt allow it during mass) but the knowledge of the riders was worse. Nikki Harris CX rider, based in Belgium most of the season spent most of the laps with Pooley, Armitstead and Laws. Commentator on one lap said "Nikki Harris is doing really well for a Cat 3 rider staying with the Elites"
Show these women some respect they bloody deserve it.
