There was a thread a little while ago about why there are so many overweight female cyclists versus male cyclists. The CW was that it was mostly perception. But I still hold to the theory that most female cyclists are not getting into it to race. Therefore, to them, it is the equivalent of a liesure activity versus a pain/suffering/competition activity. So they do not ride as hard or train as often, and in addition, because they cycle, they think they can increase their food intake as if they are Lance Armstong 2-weeks into the tour. Or Greg Lemond now.

Also - this was a track cyclist versus a road cyclist. Most track cyclists (even males) have larger thighs and are not the weight weenies road cyclists are.

WTF does this have to do with road bike racing? So the girls aren't that pretty, 'nuff said. I'm certain that there arent exactly alot of Mario Cipollini's posting here.

The woman's name is Amara Boursaw, and her Track Palmares are pretty darn good, including 2nd place Pursuit in the 2006 Junior Track National championships.

If you want to judge her, at least judge her on her cycling abilities and accomplishments.

Forget about the the initial post and check out the crash section on the website. Who needs rubber necks when you've got resources like this?
