I'm kinda interested in peoples opinion of the first article. Not the spelling and grammer mistakes
of course, but the controversial issue that is brought up...

Of course, the 45 ft jump at the end *is* pretty cool :)

I've got bad news for her (it?). She still looks like a guy. That's one ugly chick. And no it isn't
fair to the riders who are actually female.

I'm okay with it, too. Gender re-assignment surgery removes the source of testosterone - the
steroid that gives males their greater muscle mass and strength. She may never *appear*
feminine due to the fact that she passed puberty as a male, and that influenced the shape of
her skeletal structure; but without testicles, she has no major advantage over a genetic
female of similar build and training.

I've learned a long time ago to never say "I've seen everything now!" ;^)

do you know of other Tour incidents like this? I'd love to cite them to the riders I know who are
bemoaning, a sad day for mountain bikers...(roll eyes)
