The inaugural 12 inductees to the new UK Mountaiin Bike Hall of Fame have been announced online prior to the awards ceremony at Mountain Mayhem tonight.

The inaugural members are:

Jason McRoy,
Barrie Clarke,
Caroline Alexander,
David Baker,
Martyn Salt,
Helen Mortimer,
Tim Flooks,
Steve Peat,
Tracy Moseley,
Rob Warner,
Tim Gould and
Nick Craig.

“These guys are all at the top of the tree in the UK mountain biking world," said Patrick Adams and Jill Greenfield of Pacific Edge Events."

In the run up to today's launch they also said:
"We have created the UK MTB Hall of Fame as a way of showing respect for everyone in the mountain bike industry, be they riders or people connected in other ways," said Patrick Adams, director of Pacific Edge Events".

If so, why have a list of initial inductees that is restricted of racers and race organisers?

Where are the pioneers?
Where are the mountain bike' engineers, designers and inventors?
Where are the entrepreneurs and industrialists who founded the UK mountain bike companies?
Where are the journalists who popularised our sport?
The advocates of mountain biking who set up riding centres and worked hard for improved land access, mountain bike friendly trail policies and responsible rider ethics.
The adventurists who pushed the boundaries of what can be ridden on a mountain bike and in doing so publicised the sport?

Is this a serious attempt to create a meaningful "Hall of Fame" that reflects the whole of UK mountain biking or just a publicity stunt for the Mountain Mayhem organisers?
