    I have to say I have never met such an unselfish "famous" person. She had a real conversation with her. Introduced her self and shook our hands (wife and me). Posed for a pic and we let her get back to what she was doing.

    My daughter saw here again when she arrived, the next day, got a big hug and smile.

    Upon winning her race, my daughter was at the finish line to give her a winning hug.

    It was awsome watching her ride. For the first 3 laps I was worried as she trailed in 2nd. But silly me. By next lap she had over a min lead, and it stretched from there on out.

    What was cool was after she crossed the finish line it looked as if she rode 5 miles. Didnt even seem out of breath.

    Shes a super down to earth girl. We would be very proud to have her represent our country.











    I think I might love her a little bit.
    and no, I am not missing the other half of my fork....

    That park looks more and more appealing as I look out the window and see nothing but rain, hail, and wind.
    At least, Phil said at Punxsutawney that spring was coming soon...

    Adorable kid!

    But, come on, she looks a bit ridiculous on that 29er. I mean, marketing is marketing and hype is hype but at what point does the sponsor say "Ok, that's enough!"

    She has to use a -25 deg stem on that thing! LOL.

    That said, she's delivering results, so whatever she's doing is working!
    I live with fear and danger every day. And on the weekends she lets me go mountain biking.

    She finished second to Lesley Paterson...who entered her first Pro XC race that day after running 6 miles before the race. Lesley is the world champ Xtrerra lady right now, so..

    Funny how Emily says (talking about Lesley) "I was riding with what's her name again...?"

    I guess Emily dropped her chain right before the finish line..

    Funny...when I was changing at my car, Emily rode past me with another Trek rider and they were like "Who is that girl with the World Champ stripes!?"

    You literally quoted the cycling dirt video. I guess if a person doesnt have time to watch it, they could just read your post.

    Yeh, it was funny to see that video and then think "No way...I actually heard her team mate say that!" I don't think anyone else heard it.

    It was the comment about "Who is that girl in the WC stripes!?"

    I laughed when I heard it and repeated the comment to my team mate. At the time, we had not seen Lesley (she never races pro mtb), so we didn't know who she was even talking about.

    Also, considering that I was there, odds are that my story will be similar to the other human who was there too filming the event...crazy right. Apologies for being lame and being at the same race as her.

    @Voodoo: Yes. They call me the Scottish Rocket. When I first read that, I was confused. Now it makes sense and made me laugh. Good one.

    I have the pleasure of training with Lesley when she is on her hard Mtn bike training regiments. The girl is legit. In the two years I have road with her she has vastly improved her bike handling and power on bursty climbs. Bonelli proved this. She started 18th and by the first lap she was with the leaders and soon after doing all the work and eventually dropping everyone but Emily. I was right where Emily dropped her chain and saw it all. It was not at the finish line. It was still with 1.5 laps to go. It was right where you come down to see the grass field and then make an off camber turn left to hit a fireroad climb back up. Emily shifted and dropped and Lesley went for it putting about 20 seconds on her and that was it. I was also at the finish line and don't recall Emily asking who she was but I did see Lea Davidson roll up and ask.
