Title: Go Shanaze!
Post by: clarion on May 28, 2008, 04:48:29 pm
Good article in The Guardian (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2008/may/28/cycling) about our Shanaze and her defence of her BMX World title.

The paper has a better photo than the website :(

It's a good article, I've read it 3 times  ;D

She is fantastic.

Slightly OT, how come we don't hear much of Rebecca Romero?

Looking at her 'air time', she seems to be going faster than the men! Can't find any times on the results pages.
