|being a triathlete my self..... i take some offence to that. I pace line with the big boys here and have no problems except when they sprint upwards of the 30's anyway....... don't generalize. I have a road bike and a time trial bike aaaaaarrrrrrrr you just winding me up and it is not worth it.
Bottom line, she rides a bike and she is fairly hot - not totally hot but still hot. Hotter than the slappers at your group rides prehaps?

|She is hot but there is something not right.... that in my book makes her not totally hot. She did make the list of 100 hottest chicks in South Africa and that is no easy task, Charlize Theron comes to mind.|

|I do training rides throughout the week and can hang with some pretty fast road racers.
However, I am amazed at how fast some triathletes are on the bike. They routinely blow by me.
The problem is that tends to happen on a narrow, downhill stretch of the bike path and they usually are on the aerobars.
As fast as they are, I wonder how they would do on climbs?
Sep 26, 2003 11:12 AM
|and nice to know I can do so with only 1/3rd of my training time being on the saddle.
Maybe if we wasted all of our free time on a bike, think how fast we'd be.

|I rode with a team comprised mostly of triathletes. No handling problems. They aren't inept. Many other triathletes train by themselves, and don't have lots of experience in packs, but it only takes them a short while to learn. Lots of triathletes are former cyclists who broadened their horizons.|

|She does appear to be an attractive young woman. But in every one of those photos, she has been attended by a skilled hair stylist, clothing designer, makeup artist and photographed in a controlled setting by a talented photographer who then retouched the images to get the effect that they both wanted. There's no such thing as a photograph of an ugly woman, just an unskilled photographer. My wife had a photo made of me for her desk, and the unwitting comments of her friends at her workplace is "your husband's a handsome man!" If they ever saw me in person, they would bite off their tongue before they ever said that!|

|Geez, I'm just kidding, I have the utmost respect for all women, except of course my ex-wife. And maybe I have a speech impediment, but you can't tell when I type.|
|this is sad, sexist and sad.||suedehead|
Sep 26, 2003 12:10 PM
|the amount of sexism on this board right now is really disgusting.
why is it that for a women to be noticed for her atheticism she has to fit certain unrealstic expectations? and when a woman athlete is of those expectations, etc, her athleticism is forgotten about and the spotlight is on how she looks rather than how she preforms.
perfect example. anna kornukova is a very bad tennis player as far as professional tennis players go. yet she gets tons of press, lots of ad campains, etc, becuase of her looks.
the williams sisters are amazing players, but certain media concentrations would rather focus on blonde, white, kornukovia ( i can not spell her name correctly.)
its a shame that women in sports will perpetually be treated this way. not given the time of day if they are "ugly" but not taken seriously if they are "pretty"
this is not an attack on anyone here, rather an observation and a comment. maybe some of you will begin thinking more critically about how you act towards women in sports and in society in general.
Sep 26, 2003 12:57 PM
|My opinion on the subject, and most people aren't going to like this, is that women's sporting accomplishments are, for the most part, unimpressive. What Serena Williams looks like will be irrelevant when she can beat Andre Agassi. Until then, she isn't the best tennis player in the World.
I really don't understand why women's sporting acheivements get put into a seperate category. But oh, yeah, they're equal and everything - we just need to hold them in their own special group to highlight their acheivements. Somebody like Kate Hnida, I admire.
Good looking guys in sports get the same attention - Jason Seehorn sucks, Jeremy Bloom is good, but not that good. It's no different.

|I understand what your saying but I think you are mixing up two different things here, athleticism and beauty. What is wrong with admiring an athletic woman's body or confessing she is beautiful. What is wrong with a beautiful athlete gaining attention because she is beautiful. This is human nature.
If what you say is true than how much more terrible it would be to admire the beauty of an inanimate object more than the functionality for which it was designed.
Allow me to quote
" richard moon bikes are absolutely gorgeous.
must be something with framebuilders named richard.. (sachs, moon)... damn good work.
but three years!! i'd go insane."
This guy is calling attention to the beauty of a bike and ignoring all the ugly high performing bikes. I dug this quote up from someone named suedehead on the archives of this board.
What is the difference?

|NPR radio essay. Yes, Kournikova gets attention because she's attractive (while also correcting the record on hers -- she may have a notoriety that is out of proportion to her achievements, but she was once the 8th ranked woman and had a real career; it's not all about her looks). Beckham probably does, too. This is the world we live in.|
|Anna K and the Williams sisters||Fez|
Sep 26, 2003 3:35 PM
|Anna K is not a very bad tennis player.
She is a product of the one of the great tennis "factories" in Russia. When she was younger, she had great athleticism and potential. She was thought to be one of the next greats.
As she got older, her tennis didn't meet up with the huge expectations placed upon her. She got injured often, but she also got more beautiful by the year. Her endorsement deals and appearance fees made her incredibly rich, but unfortunately she never achieved much as far as winning tournaments.
Actually, she maintains a great image and serves her sponsors well. She's an excellent endorser/businesswoman and should be congratulated, not chatised for those successes.
As far as the Williams sisters go, they endorse plenty of stuff. If people don't like them, maybe its because they can't shut their stupid father up from crying the race card every time he sneezes. Maybe its because they aren't very charismatic and they act like asses when asked to make public appearances.
It has nothing to do with how they look. In fact, depending on what floats your boat, I think some guys thought the black catsuit looked hot.
Hey, Magic Johnson and MJ and Kobe (pre-adultery days) have a certain amount of charisma that made them hot on the endorsement circle. Maybe if the Williams sisters had some, they would be in the news more in a positive light.
