Much more inclusive and supportive than a road bike race, for instance.

I've never heard a triathlete bash roadies--even when I'm incognito in my tri suit and aero helmet.
A spy! Cool!

I don't race, so the only real criteria for me to judge other riders is not getting knocked over or run into a car. High levels of sturm und drang seem to be mostly a BF phenomenon.

A bike's a bike, as far as I'm concerned, and the quality of the rider depends little on that. There's squids everywhere...
