Why is Mountain biking being all but ignored? Not a mention by the BBC this morning. Look at the comments above. Every sport receives a comment regarding the athletes or the possibility of a medal. Mountain Biking is ignored. This in spite of its availability to young folk. Not to mention its contribution to the economy with sales of bikes going through the roof.
This is my only complaint on what has been a fantastic games, superbly reported on but Mountain Biking deserves better.
