So a genuine British Sporting Goddess tells a journalist that she's seeing a bloke who she doesn't want to settle down with?

So she knows she looks good in the buff and she's confident about her amazing body?

So it's quite possibly more about the sex than the dinner date?

So bloody good on her. 

If that's what it takes to win gold, then she should go for it.  I'm only disappointed that she didn't say she's actually got two fellas on the go.  Or a fella and a young lady. 

Or both  :)

I'm not sure this really shows her as being arrogant or full of herself to be honest.

She's very very good at what she does and the press are naturally going to sell the sex angle, and the fact that she's attractive, I'd doubt she was the one driving the direction the questions headed.

And there is very likely a big gap (as JT has seen) between the media persona and the reality.

Y'know, too many women don't take up cycling, because they think it's a "macho" thing, or (gods forbid) they might find themselves looking all muscley. Then along comes a sexy female who proves that it's possible to kick the arses of all the testosterone-doping gender-uncertain iron-curtain-shot-putter-looking old-style female atheletes, and does it all wearing make-up. And what do we do? We slag her off for being too girly. >:(

I have no problem with that. I'd happily be her f*** buddy, although I'm a bit out of her league  :P

She's an amazing athlete, but her head is so rapidly going up her own arse that it's coming back out of her head again! (An interesting mental image!)

I guess we mere mortals like our sports stars to be modest. The most popular ones always are. That's the very reason Armstrong is fairly unpopular amongst cycling fans (glory hunters and Man U supporters aside). Can't take anything away from what he achieved, but he's a bit of a knob.....

I can't see any arrogance at all in what she said. Good grief, what the hell's the matter with a confident woman, you lot?  And you've got to remember that the article has been edited to make it as controversial as possible. And she got heavy criticism for posing nude and was forced to justify it. And the paper is pissed off with her because she didn't speak to them - all they've done is a cut and paste job of something printed elsewhere, and journalistic pride demands that they chop it up and change the meaning so they can make it look like they've done some work.

Edit: that article was written by the Daily Arsewipe Mail! http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/news/news.html?in_article_id=557434&in_page_id=1770
All the Bedfordshire rag did was tag on "Miss P did not return our calls." Please don't judge one of our sporting heroes (or anybody else for that matter) by what's written in the Daily Heil.

And the Mail article was a cut and paste job from the MoS: http://www.mailonsunday.co.uk/pages/live/articles/sport/othersports.html?in_article_id=557470&in_page_id=1781

And I suspect the MoS article was a cut and paste job from an interview done by another paper.

For a slightly less sex-obsessed angle on her, try this: http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/sport/more_sport/article3137815.ece

Or this: http://sport.guardian.co.uk/cycling/osm/story/0,,2260308,00.html

But it's all distorted. I would have thought you lot were cynical enough never to trust a newspaper article 100%. You shouldn't judge her without getting to know her personally.

I thought she was just being matter-of-fact and honest. If you are one of the best in the world at something, false modesty is a very unbecoming trait. So is blowing your own trumpet too much.

I can't claim to know a great deal about Ms. Pendleton, but that interview seems to display a certain amount of "WYSIWYG".

I think Kathy is absolutely right and I don't think it's a good idea to put anyone on a pedestal, either from the "phwooar" point of view or because she is more athletically successful any of us.

Ah- the Bedfordshire on Sunday paper, or as it's known locally here, the cat litter on Sunday (as that's all it's good for).

Mind you, I can't see what the problem is.  Basically she's saying train hard, get good muscles, win a few medals, have some nooky and enjoy yourself whilst you're able to.  Better that, than hanging on a street corner drinking cans of lager and kicking old ladies.

Good for her.

Look at the contrast between Victoria Pendleton and the usual role model girls are bombarded with. She projects an image of a young woman with a supremely fit but natural body. She doesn't have a silicone boob job nor does she starve herself. She has powerful muscles that are clearly fit for purpose yet she remains feminine, and men clearly find her attractive. That's what I think she means when she talks about having a good body image. She's a preferable role model to Kate Moss.

Of course there is nothing wrong with her comments (about equating 'sexy' with riding a bike). The problem, as I see it, is the narrowness of mind of the media in focussing  only on what 'the media' consider sexually newsworthy. Had VP looked like Felicia Ballanger (do your own research - safe to say she was no glamour girl) she (VP) would not have attracted a column inch in the UK. VP has a very long way to go before she equals the palmares of Ballanger, yet to read the papers,even some of the cyclng press, one would assume that VP is the only successful female British cyclist. By rights, Nicole Cooke, by far the most successful modern female cyclist, should attract the most attention, (again research) but she does not. Why not? Because she is not conventionally 'pretty' (though she melts my heart). Despite one 'glam' shoot she prefers to be judged by results alone, by her peers.
If VP wants to capitalise on her 15 minutes of fame good luck to her, it certainly doesn't harm the perception of cycling in the media, just lets not forget the other female cyclists who achieved greatness without playing the 'glam' card.
Anyone remember Beryl Burton? (Who, to me, was gorgeous). With her achievments (look 'em up, but give yourself a while) she would..... well decide for yourself.
We live in the 'short attention span' - 'sound/video byte' age. I chatted with, (about fruit of all things) indeed bought tea and buns, for Beryl Burton in a cafe in Yorkshire. I wonder, in years to come, how many will be able to say the same of VP?

Bear in mind that the preception of cycling is changing. Has any other cycling event been given prime time coverage on the BBC other than the worlds? I suspect that this has helped enourmously with her publicity.

For pretty I offer Lizzy Armitstead (left if you aren't familiar with GB kit):

It's not just about looks though. From what I've seen and heard of Nicole Cooke, she isn't as articulate as VP and doesn't have very much personality. Or rather, she doesn't have the kind of personality that makes you instantly warm to her regardless of her racing achievements. 

Quote
Despite one 'glam' shoot she prefers to be judged by results alone, by her peers.

The only reason that VP started getting media attention was because of her results.

Their choice of cycling discipline also has a bearing on the amount of media attention they receive. VP wins gold medals in competitions like the World Cup, World Championships and Olympics - easily understood events to the non-cycling public. NC wins fairly obscure road races [mostly] abroad. The mainstream media don't even report mens road races (apart from the TDF) so she hasn't got a hope in hell.

Ouch... (and by that I mean I'm not fond of this look! 2nd pic here she looks ill...)

After reading her interviews it seems she's trying too hard to leave her "cute, girl next door, cake and dress making" image behind. She's going for the attention of the masses and not the minority. Who can blame her though.

I bet she's glad she turned up at the Sony bash and not the Jonathon Ross show now though!

Ah come on now. You should look at it as being streamlined not flat-chested? Yeah, aerodynamic. That's how I want to look at it.

Do you ever cycle through red lights? You know, when the pedestrian lights are green? No, I never do that. I'm quite tempted to do it, but I don't, simply because I feel there are enough cyclists who give us a bad name [a reckless Small Talk weaving through north London on his high nelly being one] and as a consequence I don't want to give anybody a reason to have a go, so I tend to stick exactly by the rules.

What makes it even more remarkable is that she appears to have the wrong body type for the event.

As she collected her Gold I couldn't help notice that her rivals looked more like over-developed, former-Soviet, power-lifters than cyclists.

Technique triumphed over brute force I suspect.

On my way home from work through the Peaks one evening last week, I was passed at speed by a very fit and shapely female cyclist in skin tight official looking lycra on an uber-bling road bike with racing shades and helmet that looked very, very much like our Vicky....
Inspired, I did catch her up down the road but was much too out of breath to engage in any conversation (sigh). She then turned left and accelerated up towards Stannage and I turned right and wobbled limply the rest of the way home so that was that....
Pretty nice encounter - though not entirely sure if it really was VP!  ;)

She looks mighty fine in FHM. She even gets a whole page to herself. I'm not sure why she's wearing a hooded top over her underwear and made up to look like she's just smoked a massive joint, but fine she does look.

Also, in the main bit of the mag there is:

"NEXT MONTH IN FHM

It isn't really VP on the cover. The amount of shit they do to you "post production" on these images is crazy. I remember watching Dawn Porter going through the process on TV. They took one of her eyes, copied, pasted and flipped it to cover the over the other, because they looked slightly different FFS.....

Thanks Charlotte.

I cannot understand the problem really. Vicki is a free agent past the age of consent. She has a need to earn a living. She chose to have the pictures taken. They show less than the original Calendar Girls showed. Certainly no "fluffy bits" (as the CGs stipulated).

Do the pictures do anything for me ?  As I rode track alongside her Dad before she was born then I had better say NO.

She has muscles, she's just not ripped like some athletes.  I've seen her deadlift. 

She also has no fear.  And a hellacious turn of speed that maybe her heavier-legged competitors can't quite match.

Parked up for yesterday's tri, there was a Sky van over the road.  I knew it was going to be a good day from there on in.

I bet they photoshopped it to tone her down a bit as well, a magazine aimed at young men can't have the cover model looking stronger than most of it's readership now can it? that would undermine their already marginal grasp on masculinity...

I guess I could watch the Ascot coverage on iPlayer and do a screengrab, but that seems like a slippery slope, and my lunch hour has its limits ...

Anyway, just to keep you going, this is an inferior dress:

Breakfast at Tiffany's?

Indeed.

Victoria Pendleton Wants Mums To Eat Breakfast - BikeRadar (http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/victoria-pendleton-wants-mums-to-eat-breakfast-25696)

Much more classy than the Times and FHM photoshoots, which both fell prey to the "trying too hard" syndrome.

'cause the whole piece is linked to a promotion of some fitness programme using that product.

Very good comment from someone asking why she was asked about "naughty" cyclists. Would they have asked a racing driver about speeding motorists?

This is probably the most inappropriate thread to comment on this, but I've been listening to VP on five live just now, and I thought she was excellent, informative, and seemed very relaxed and even happy. Good for her. Hope we get to hear more.

Vicky P loves cycling. It is racing she hates (though she likes the training).
