There are times I really like Vicky P - like when shes pointing out the inequlaity in the olympic cyling programme - and going all out to win.

BUT there are time when she gets right on my wick - like with this quote

"Perhaps more controversial are her comments about her fellow cyclists: "Some of the girls I race against are quite masculine and have very low voices and facial hair..."

Don't get me worng - she's pretty - but the truth of the matter is not everyone is - and it' shouldn't matter in a cycle race.

Why can't we be happy for other women to be however they want to be - be that uber glamerous - be that tom boy - be that 'a bit chunky' - be that posing for FHM, or be that 'quite masuline' .

This isn't the first time she's stooped to having a crack at the looks of her rivals - and it just makes her look like petty and mean.

    I think it's more a comment on "illegal training methods" she suspects some of them might be using.... but would need to see the context of the quote to be sure.

    I'd take it to mean that some of her rivals may be using stuff they arent meant to be ?

    I dont know any women with low voices and moustaches ?
