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.

Mountain biking is one thing that i do not understand, but i still watched it and by crikey don't they half go. The stunts are so very good, but still do not understand the scoring etc. I still back them as they are our team GB and are putting a whole lot of effort into the sport. Well done all of you.
