Quoting starkers, reply 48Neither is car/motorcycle racing, but people still call it sport.
Starkers...maintain a heart-rate of 180 for 2 hours and declare yourself NOT an athlete.....whilst enduring 6G loading....
I don't care... when somebody s propelled from A to B by a machine and does not complete the distance using the body parts god gave him/her, it is NOT sport IMO.... neither is horse racing.
If a jockey can't run around the course and has to rely on a gee-gee to get him/her here, then he/she ought to get his/her runners on and have a fkn go.
For mine, sport is entirely a human endeavour that relies not on machines or animals to do much... er, 95% of the work for them.
