Custer has become a symbol of hubris, of failing due to overconfidence and desire for glory. Here in the states anyhow, maybe Canadians have a different view. And overconfidence leading to a massive failure seems pretty relevant to mtb to me, most of my crashes in the early days were due to me landing a jump well or hitting a corner well and getting a big head. Like the titanic, it's not really about the tragedy of a ship sinking and loads of people dying, it's become an object lesson now. And for what it's worth, there was a great deal of heroism, glory and honor in the Battle of the Little Bighorn but it sure wasn't on the whites side.
