    The photograph has actually opened up a much-needed debate about the presence of the smooch-happy podium girls and the ingrained objectification of women in the world of cycling. Is the winner taking home a cycling title or an armful of women? It sends the wrong message, especially for young women actually looking to hop on a cycle instead of a cyclist.
    How about in ALL forms of racing? I'm a huge fan of racing - I'll watch any form of it, but this part of it has always bothered me.

    I'm okay with tradition, but there should be podium dudes at women's races... it's only fair!

    Cross Vegas has podium dudes! In little tiny underwear, no less

    I use to be super active in the import car scene, heck I've had scantily clad girls pose on my own car. I was alright with it, but I was really annoyed about how little most of the girls/models really cared about cars and the scene. Just always rubbed me a little wrong, especially when someone would have the attitude of "oh, it's just a car." Damn, have some respect for the scene/sport that is giving you some place to prance around half naked!
