    i saw her in action on the TV a few weeks ago, along with her brothers, Dan and Gee. They're all good.

    I wonder waht they talk about round the dinner table? :lol:
    Ned Flanders: “You were bicycling two abreast?”
    Homer Simpson: “I wish. We were bicycling to a lake.”

    Threads like this are truly useless without pictures.

    So I googled 'Rachel Atherton'...and I really don't see what all the fuss is about.

    (However, the comments about her being a 'catch' for northerners is spot on).

    Shropshire is down south.

    Rubbish. We have baths instead of barths and are as poor as anyone in the North. :wink: Just cos we don't wear flat caps and race whippets dunna mean we're Southern.

    Ps
    I follow AFC Telford Utd, a footie club from Shropshire, and we play in the Conference North. There you go, living proof we're Northern.

    Until the season just finished WORCESTER played in conference north, and when I went there you couldn't move for pigeon lofts, ferret runs, whippets and blokes in flat caps. A real bastion of the north. :lol:

    Owd on a minute, am I to believe the bird in the green top and white "red bull" hat is the same person the one in the photo that looks like it's come out of an album of police "mug shots".

    I think what passes for good looking up north would be below average down here in the sunny, affluent and generally fabulous south.

    Down south the birds is lovely. There I've said it.

    Worcester? So far North they're practically Geordies!!

    Back on topic (just for a min) ... Rachel is ok ... nothing more than that though. Can't be doing with the fake Californian surfer scene dialect though. Or maybe I'm wrong and everyone in Salisbury speaks like that?

    She 'does' American as well? Too funny - anyone got a youtube link? The picture I'm forming is one of a 12-yr old Joss Stone on a bike.

    EDIT: Just found this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiYknIFEayw
    Other than the repeated use of words like 'stoked' and 'gnarly', my opinion of her has changed. Forget '12 yr old' - with those shoulders she could happily flatten me with a lazy haymaker!

    (EDITed - read dialect, assumed accent)

    Not a Californian accent as such, it's just regular use of words such as:

    radical
    like
    so
    dude

    eg "Dude, it was like, so radical ... that truck like nearly wiped me out ... awesome"

    Don't get me wrong, she's an absolutely fantastic rider and I've got total respect for her. I'd never try and take anything away from what she's achieved at such a young age. Very talented and got balls of steel too ... just seems to be trying to do the California thing. I mean, what's wrong with Salisbury? :shock:
