No, some blokes do get genuinely annoyed if they lose to a woman. E.g. one race I did where a Worksop Harrier's teammates urged him on by saying 'come on, you can't lose to the second lady!'. I can't remember if he did or not.
Also, if you are first lady chances are you know you are, but if you're somewhere in the top five then it's genuinely helpful if people tell you your position - it's not just that they're cheering you on more than the men around you, more that they're telling you something helpful.
