    The Emily Batty thread

    There had to be one eventually.

    She's just 22 years old, but is certainly getting lots of press, and she might be the favourite video interview for Colt at Cyclingdirt.org. It looks like she has quite a promising future as a mountain bike racer. She's certainly taken over as the most photographed smile in mountain bike racing from Marie-Helene Premont, which is interesting as she lists Premont as one of her MTB racing heroes, along with other top Canadian riders such as Catharine Pendrel and Chrissy Redden.

    This month she's on the cover of Singletrack magazine (UK), no article just a masthead comment on the cover photo Emily Batty - Oh yes

    But there is a very good writeup on Emily in the new Canadian Cycling Magazine

    She is a cutie for sure! Haven't seen her ride in person, but very cool that she is an "up and coming". Wouldn't be hard to watch her ride, that's for sure

    Lee-Ann Rymes races XC? What a bunch of horny teenagers.

    All I want to know is what bike is that?..I see it's a Trek, but what model?.... Also hardtail I see...cool.

    So in her racing does she do wicked jumps or anything?....uphill rock scaling type stuff?
