    Did they explain how, demographically speaking, the average 'nutter' mountain biker is a professional male in his 30s holding down a middle class job?

    We are all nutters" because we actually have the balls and experience to ride mountain bikes fast, I don't give a shit what other people think, they're all fannies."

    Yes, I saw that. The reporter nearly fell off riding across what appeared to be a slightly damp piece of track, then it was followed up by Tommy Walsh regaling the viewer with his experience of mountain biking, with that fat female politician with the crap hair who's name escapes me. No not Mo Mowlem, the other one. Not sure it did much to further the sport. If you want to see it, as it was on New 24 you will be able to catch it every 15 minutes for the rest of the day.

    Why is it that moutaining biking a sport that is not only bloody good fun but great to watch so f#*!king neglected by the media. Steve peat and tracy moseley are champs and do great for there country along with a lot of other british riders.2 Mins of coverage what b#*?cks.

    I'd contend that the current breed of mountain biker is generally an 'anti-nutter' - body armour, full face helmets, 6 travel bikes to take out the sting, waymarked trails actually designed to be ridden by bikes, with little exposure and no chance of getting lost. It's all about risk aversion, preserving an illusion of danger. Nutter lite."
