Need for Speed Results are in!js5280

The polls have closed and the results are in! And the winner of the RBR "Need for Speed" Trophy goes to none other than Do(u)g who's claimed speed of 64 mph tops the charts but with a number of people close behind.

Of course with the extraordinary play of the Fresno St. football team, I'm beginning to wonder what the City of Fresno is putting in their water out there. Fresno downstream from any amphetamine labs there Doug? ;-)

Unfortunately I don't think we had any entries for the Women's "Need for Speed" Trophy. Where are you ladies (Spinchick, Kristin, Missy, Caroline, etc.)?

Winners of the Sammy Hagar "I can't ride 55" Honorary Mention Award go to the following individuals:

63 Wes
62+ Atombomber
62 PELETON
58 tdfox (Tandem)
56 bikedodger
56 ColnagoFE
56 Dave Woof
56 Scott H

Other fun cycling speed facts:

Average of 72.74 MPH ON FLATS!

Attempt at 140 MPH, MTB, ON THE SNOW!

And for those of us who haven't broke 46 mph, apparently there are people who roller-skate backwards faster than us.

The bar has been set, now you know what to do this weekend ;-)

Speaking of speed, anyone else going to the Downhill World Championships in Vail this weekend?
