This article is actually about Mark Beaumont being surprised he was beaten by a female, not the word 'Girl'.
My own personal perspective and what drove me to attempt the challenge. Unlike many athletes I did not spend hour upon hour rigorously putting my body through the pain barrier. I just got on my bike and cycled, and cycled, and then when I thought I had cycled far enough, I cycled some more till I was fit to drop. This is how I view my challenging endeavors. I was not competing against thousands of other athletes as much as I’m competing with the devilish cauliflower thing stuffed between my ears. When I can block out the burning and the aches in my legs and my knees, the searing in my lungs, the negative voices that are going around inside my head then I have won. You obviously do have to put yourself through some considerable physical distress, even pain, to achieve a personal goal like this, but when you have, no matter what the age or the ailments you may have, and then you are a winner. You have not just won a physical battle. You have also knocked down a significant mental barrier. These mental bar ...
I'm keen for all of this. Who's coming for Mark/Damo party next week?
The BBC has definitely lost the plot now - Mark Beaumont, presenter of the 'Queen's Baton Relay' program, said '.. I cannot live this down - being beaten by a 19 yr-old girl' in a fun judo match'. On broadcast, the word 'girl' was omitted in case it caused offence. It was also revealed that no-one at the event (but the BBC) could find anything offensive with this.
BBC is accused of censorship after cutting the g-word - The BBC was caught up in a censorship row yesterday after the word “girl” was cut from a TV documentary amid fears that it might cause offence. During an episode of The Queen’s Baton Relay, the presenter Mark Beaumont, 31, joked after being thrown t -

Travel Around the world in 195 days, six hours - by bike Share 0 inShare0 Email Cathy Heffernan The Guardian, Saturday 16 February 2008 A Scottish man became the fastest to cycle around the world yesterday when he arrived in Paris after nearly seven months on the road. Mark Beaumont, 25, completed the trip in 195 days and six hours - beating the current record of 276 days. After almost seven months of dodging drivers, sleeping rough and struggling to get enough to eat, Beaumont is expected to enter the Guinness Book of Records, once the feat is verified. Carrying 80kg of gear, including a tent, on a £2,500 road bike, Beaumont beat the previous record by 81 days. He said the last two days on the road had been hard, but "about 40km from Paris the adrenaline kicked in and I flew up the last hills". His trip took him through 20 countries on a route which included Pakistan, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Holland last August took four hours; Germany three days. He endured floods and ro ...

...Worried they were turning into couch potatoes, the Campbells wanted some inspiration to become more active as a family, so the new show seemed like a perfect opportunity. Coached Off The Couch set Amanda, Craig and their two children a series of tasks designed to introduce them to activities they could all enjoy together. As part of the TV show the Campbells completed a 10-mile cycle with world-record-breaking cyclist Mark Beaumont who told them about the Rob Roy Challenge. Hearing him talk about taking part in the 2012 event inspired them to do the same this year. They feel that having a target like Rob Roy provides the ideal motivation to ensure they keep up their training. Oh, and Mark enjoyed his experience so much last year that he has already signed up for 2013.
