Just female. Women who are semi-decent or even mediocre but steady racers (like myself) tend to get sponsored easily. I've been racing for over 10 years, am a licensed coach, and have managed my own women's team. The Trek sponsorship came with the team management gig. You don't have to be that good, you just have to know the right people in the industry ;-)

Among certain groups, I'm sure I'm "infamous". Make that notorious. I tend to be very outspoken on unpopular issues like holding women's, juniors' and 55+ racing categories. The entire Cincinnati cycling organization probably heaved an enormous sigh of relief when I moved to Boulder, CO a year ago.

The leading OH race promoter and longtime OH district rep officially and fanatically hates my guts. He's probably still dancing with glee now that I'm gone. My SO and I did a lot of race promotion in SW Ohio and just about put him out of business the times he scheduled in conflict with us. Silly us - we held races for something other than just Cat I/II Master 35+ men, and had the audacity to draw ten times the amount of riders.

... a 40-ft Olsen that once won a Transpac. My boss later bought it and renamed it "Uproarious".
It all fits LFR, doesn't it? (nm)Jon
