    Judging by the FAIL thread, it’s not going to be a tightly fought competition.

    You’ve not seen my latest video have you?

    For those who are hard of humour, this is a joke thread.

    surely the STW definaition of fast is unrelated to kph but more who spends the most on a pimpy race bike, that in the hands of a pro, would be capable of going fast?

    so that definately rules all you pitch pro riders out!

    Surely Dougal has to be up there in the XC category.

    What a brilliant race format. Four people in each round, 4x style, drag racing on a road downhill! Can we have that at the next STW member organised event please?

    I may not be fast, but I am rad to the power of sick.

    Innit.

    I bought that No Fear t-shirt from Noahs Ark Cycles back about 12-13 years ago – later the same day I took it back and exchanged it for ‘It’s not how good you are, it’s how bad you want it!’ πŸ˜‰

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

    Me! my Mrs says I’m the quickest ride she’s ever had!!

    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.

    I am usually slow.

    But I can find alarming bursts of speed when the cake shop is close…

    too true.
    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…. πŸ˜‰

    Apart from glupton? Gotta be smee- god he is fast/cool…

    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.

    Not if we enter on the tandem. all up weight approaching 30 stone – eat our dust boy πŸ™‚

    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?

    Hold on, I thought that glupton = smee ???

    N’est pas?

    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!

    what about general trail riders? some of us don’t fit into either of those cats.
    Not that i’d win that either..

    Are there really that many racing whippets and DH gods on here? I thought the majority were weekend warriors or trail riding people??

    Its not about speed.

    Simply olly would be if he got his finger out and trained

    There’s a thought for WCA – has he got a slowest race event at the BBB?
