Make Downhill Mountain Biking an Olympic Sport!!



http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=21841887176

This is a group for anyone and everyone who agrees that downhill mountain bike racing should be a part of the summer Olympic games. If you are a racer, team member, rider, organizer, sponsor, fan, friend or relative of any of the above, or completely unaffiliated good samaritan, please help us by joining this group. The main goal of this group is to present the International Olympic Committee with over 10,000 group members as a Facebook petition, to demonstrate the interest that the public shows in this sport so that we might become an Olympic sport by the 2016 summer games (location to be announced October 2, 2009). The IOC claims that DH should not be included as an Olympic sport as it requires a venue with a mountain, yet cross country mountain bike racing has been an Olympic sport since the 1996 Atlanta summer games. Could you imagine the winter Olympics with XC skiing but not DH or giant slalom? If we are accepted as an Olympic sport, an added benefit will be that we will also put an end to corporate sponsorship dropouts claiming that we are not worth it as we are not an Olympic sport. Please, help us reach our many attainable goals by joining this group.

(This group started ~10:00pm Monday Nov 12, 2007. 10,000th member joined ~5:28pm Friday March 28, 2008. That's about 80 new members a day... 20,000th member joined ~10:51am Wednesday Jan 7, 2009.)

Thanks to all the members of this group for your support! A 20,000 member strong petition is a powerful weapon for our sport, who knows what we might accomplish with a written mob like this! See you at the Olympics!!
