- Who’s the fastest rider on STW?
I believe Elbry Sandland is still a member of stw following his excellent contributions to the recent thread about him. His comments there would suggest that he may out of the rest of us be the the fastest at both DH and singlespeed xc with a beer in each hand.

Thing about fast riders is that they miss all the nice views and scenery and fall off a lot. Think tortoise and hare

i ride with a large group, about 20 of us, ages from mid 20s to mid 50s.
last autumn we went to cytb for the weekend.
a trio of us are a bit steady to say the least.
after the 1st mile of the beast of brenin the younger ones looked a bit miffed waiting
a spokesman for them said ‘i have a idea, lets split into 2 groups, faster and slower’.
so i waited at the back along with 2 more.
off we went, after about a mile or so on the 2nd rocky decsent we passed 2 of them puntured.
at the bottom of the descent 1 more had punctured.
we carried on, 1 more tagged onto the slow group.
i said to the other 3 ‘we can take it steady now, they wont catch us’
my mate asked why, i said ‘ because they will be going crazy on the downhills trying to catch us, and they will puncture all day long’
to cut a long story short we rode the entire beast of brenin route and they never caught us.
we had been back at the cafe, and drank 3 bottle of the organic cider there before they turned up.
i ofcourse did not rub it in for the rest of the weekend…. 😉rolfharrisMember
jcromton and moi have some not bad results.
1st Hit the North, Dawn Raid, 4th SXC champs in sport, 2nd Relentless 24, and cromton was 2nd in the SXC sport series. I was only about 6th I think. There’s a load more but that’d be boasting…
I reckon njee20 and simply_oli_y are probably the quickest, I doubt any elite riders would come on here.Posted 9 years agoTandemJeremyMember

freewheel race from a standing start with no chain on a smooth road downhill…….me for sure. [:lol:]
Not if we enter on the tandem. all up weight approaching 30 stone – eat our dust boy 🙂
I know there are a couple of fast riders on here. Does the lady who won the SXC thingy ( IIRC) want to stand up / be outed?Posted 9 years agomboySubscriber

Apart from glupton? Gotta be smee- god he is fast/cool…
Hold on, I thought that glupton = smee ???
MANY MANY years ago bought some forks off a guy who was on the old Singletrack forum. He was in the winning team at SITS 24hr race back in 2002/3 iirc, was a very nice bloke as well as being ridiculously quick on an XC bike for a sustained period of time!Posted 9 years ago
