Porn Site Sponsors Italian MTB Team

by 9

Oookay. This is one of those weird stories you’re not totally sure about, but it’s emerged that porn site xHamster, one of the top 100 websites in the world, and the third biggest porn site (no, we’re not linking to it, you can google it yourself, you perv), is sponsoring Promosport Racing, a predominantly MTB cycling team in Italy.

Promosport is a team which seem to enjoy (and compete in) all sorts of disciplines, at many levels, which apparently appealed to the people at xHamster.

An xHamster spokesman said: “I tend to believe that cycling, as xHamster, is all about passion, commitment and a great deal of teamwork. It`s about accepting the challenges and exceeding the limits, while working in a team of professionals whom you can undoubtedly trust. That`s the reason why we stand behind the sponsorship of Promosport Racing team”.

Well, crikey.

We found this fascinating bit of info thanks to our good friends at road.cc – heaven knows how *they* found out about it… It was slightly tricky to fact check the story without – er – um.

Never mind.

Barney Marsh takes the word ‘career’ literally, veering wildly across the road of his life, as thoroughly in control as a goldfish on the dashboard of a motorhome.

He’s been, with varying degrees of success, a scientist, teacher, shop assistant, binman and, for one memorable day, a hospital laundry worker. These days, he’s a dad, husband, guitarist, and writer, also with varying degrees of success. He sometimes takes photographs. Some of them are acceptable.

Occasionally he rides bikes to cast the rest of his life into sharp relief. Or just to ride through puddles. Sometimes he writes about them. Bikes, not puddles.

He is a writer of rongs, a stealer of souls and a polisher of turds.

He isn’t nearly as clever or as funny as he thinks he is.

    Unless I’m very much me taken it’s not April fools day!

    I’ve just been reading the other article on ST about sexism and then I read this. Don’t know what to say other than Italian attitudes seem very different to ours, but I suppose if berlosconi was anything to go by it’s not such a surprise. I sincerely hope this sponsorship deal is short lived. Not good.

    Am I the only one who’s never heard of xHamster? I read it as XC Hamster at first, which made marginally more sense.

    I can see a range of cross over products… lube… chains… helmet polish… rubber boots… servicing…

    That’s one hell of a strip. Riding strip, I mean. Where can I get it?

    Ah yes legend – I did wonder 🙂

    They actually DO have bike porn! //Link removed….//

    I’m pleased they went straight for team sponsorship rather than testing the water with a screen filling auto play video advert on STW :o)
