    I didn’t win any when I was doing ~35, and the winner was way out of reach when I did some more recently at ~38 minutes – I thought the standard of club events was fairly low here given 38 was still getting me top 10, but it must be even worse where you are!

    I won a 10km a fortnight ago in 41.20 😳

    It was offroad in the event’s defence.

    Bolt would win up to 612m, over that Farah would win.

    Gee Atherton versus Cav on an XC course?

    Cav any day of the week. He’s a sprinter and has ridiculous bike handling skills.

    Is he an ex mountain biker?

    Lol at the middle aged men claiming that because they ran a half decent 100m as a teen, they would beat Mo Farah.

    Is he an ex mountain biker?

    According to his Twitter feed last week there is no ex about it.

    I think some people are describing themselves as “sprinter” using the STW definition, which is:

    “fat IT worker, too unfit to run/cycle that far, gets slower as distance increases. Needs high energy gels/cheesecake/coke to fuel their explosive efforts.”

    I think 535 m is where they’d meet.

    I have a memory of School during a long hot Summer. Athletics was the PE lesson and I think Seb Coe held the World 800M record.

    Fastest 8 sprinters ran a relay and came no where near the record. Was quite a long time ago and I am sure it is not a hallucination.

    Mo = Molgrips. SCIENCE FACT!

    Lots of men wondering if Mo Grips is going to go for the overtake.

    With only 100m between corners, who knows?

    I’m going by my school year. As fit as anyone else on the football field, comfortably the best at 100/200/400; behind almsot all the sporty kids at anything over a mile.

    As a slight digression, I wonder how many people could ride 100m in sub 10 secs? – Don’t forget that it’d be a standing start which would mean the sprinters would be away before you’re wound the power up.

    All this is irrelevant anyway.
    We all know that Olympic metres aren’t the same as SI metres. They’re about 80cm instead of 100cm, that’s why Mo and Ussain are so fast.

    Are you quite sure?

    n.b. obviously there are gearing issues at play on a track bike but it’s certainly not a complete cinch.

    I did a flying 200m at the track once, I forget what my time was though. I think I came in just under 10s, 9.6 rings a bell. That was on a hire bike too. That works out about 45mph, which seems quick, but tracks are very quick.

    Can someone please tag this with molgrips=awesome?

    Given a bit of training Molgrips could and don’t see why I couldn’t – but then I don’t fit the overweight thing. Quite interested now so will look for a local 100m track – 12.9? Did 11.7 10 years ago without much practice.

    You would have to have a team of talented athletes to get close to 1:41 which is what Coe ran for the World record. In fact here it is. Circa 50 secs per lap.

    Coe First man inside 1:42 for 800m

    I may not be at my personal best but I could very easily beat 12.9! It’s really not that fast, 13 year olds up and down the country are beating that.

    I’m now tempted to find a track and time myself too πŸ™‚ I wonder if anyone make a smartphone app for self-timing? It could be voice or vibration activated…

    I love the way everybody ran such fantastic times in their youth etc. I know lots of people who were running incredible 5 and 10k times 20 years ago.
    I think they get better/faster with every telling!

    Are we talking about a track bike, or geared roadbike?

    (Consensus in the office on Mo vs Bolt is Mo over 600m. Admitedly all the wimmins voted for Mo on the basis of ‘he’s lovely’ rather than any athletic prowess.)

    Bolt does train over 600m though apparently.

    Surfer, if you think I am showing off, let me tell you my best ever (and last) result was 5th in county athletics. In Herefordshire, which is a shit county.

    I gave it up because I didn’t enjoy it, and I didn’t think I was talented enough compared to my mum.

    That to one side, I do feel he can claim a certain athletic prowess πŸ˜†

    I wasn’t referring to you Molly it was a general point.
    Anyway 5th at what distance and age group?

    16 years old, 200m, I think maybe 23.5s but I am not sure.

    Anyone interested in this sprint timer app? I reckon you could wear the phone on your wrist say, then it would do ‘to your marks, set, go!’ audibly and start the clock.

    Then when you cross the line you would have to say thump your chest to get it to stop. GPS is not accurate enough to time 100m.

    Over 600m I reckon Bolt will win. If they were racing 800m then my money would be on Mo. Clearly they should actually be racing 700m.

    Back to the more important topic, it strikes me that even without any fast twitch muscles then Mo ought to be able to run a lot faster than 12.9 for the 100m – OK it’s from a standing start, but that’s slower than his 400m pace, almost certainly slower than his 800m pace (I’m not sure if he’s ever done one, but based on recent results you’d suspect he wouldn’t be far off Coe’s time).

    Personally I reckon I could have Bolt over 10k – bring it on!

    So after all this bickering we can finally answer the question at hand?

    Neither, it’d be Molgrips mum.

    Who’s up for a STW track league, using my app?

    I bet my mum could beat most 68 year-old women over 100m!

    My tuppenceworth……undoubtedly some stwers are very good athletes, but let’s not forget that Bolt is an Elite ffs! I know that he doesn’t train to compete over 10k’s but I’m guessing that his natural athletic prowess means that he’d have little problem beating most on here over whatever distance. Just like how Cav is a shit climbers in TdF terms but would drop most domestic elites on any type of terrain. A few months after Chris Newton ( world champ track cyclist) retired, he ran his first ever marathon and click 2hrs 59mins….there’s a reason that these guys are Elite!

    It doesn’t work like that. Sprinting is completley different to distance running. It’s like saying Bolt would be able to swim 400m faster than any of us, or play a better round of golf.

    I bet that he would be able to swim 400m faster than any if us!! I know that distance running and sprinting are vastly different things, but we’re not just talking about a random guy here, this is an Olympic champion….natural athletes tend to be incredibly gifted at numerous sports…..stwers are generally dorks with limited athletic prowess no matter how committed to their chosen sport they are.
