After Interbike, 2012 Junior World Downhill Champion Holly Feniak took some photos for an upcoming Pinkbike article. Based on the above teaser photo, the theme of the photo essay will not be to highlight her bike’s tire and shock setup.
If you’ve observed the online creepiness that follows every post involving Lauren Daney, than this upcoming Holly Feniak story should be one for the ages. The boys over at Pinkbike are going to have to hire temporary staffers just to moderate the comments at the end of the Holly article. When the article comes out I’m going to open up the link, scroll down straight past the article and the pictures and just go straight to the comments section to see what sort of messed up shit gets said when 40 year olds and 13 year olds get together online to creep on 17 year old Ms. Feniak. Oh, how the tacit promise of quasi-anonymity makes timid souls brave.
If pinkbike was a high school, and Holly was a student, than there would be about 40 windowless vans parked across from the basketball courts with 45 year olds sitting, cleaning their binoculars so they could get a good look. Welcome to the internet.
It reminds me of a lesson I learned recently from pro MTB photographer/amateur lifecoach Justin Olsen:
“Charlie, as you grow older, you have to remember your A, B, C’s. Always Be Creepin’.”
Truer words were never spoken, Justin. Truer words…
A MESSAGE FROM TEAM ROBOT HQ: Team Robot does not endorse creepin’. However, Team Robot also recognizes the universal “Don’t hate the player hate the game” principle.
