This is a great article; I'm glad to see representation in what has historically been a really closed, narrow sport getting air time. In typical NSMB style.. this article feels a lot more mature about it than some other big online bike media.
I'm a middle class turned upper middle class, cis-het white guy living in the US. Representation has never been an issue for me, but the grom culture piece and how shops can give real opportunities to teens really resonates. I learned skills on the shop floor at 16 that I still carry with me today, as a successful middle manager at a giant company.
