Just how fast are professional mountain bikers compared to amateurs? Could you keep up? Neil uses the Finale round of the Enduro World Series to compare the winning times of Richie Rude and Cecile Ravanel against his own, and other amateur racers.

Using metrics from Roots and Rain to compare these times, we were able to build a report of just how fast you have to be in order to win a round of the EWS. The stage down Mens DH was also raced by challengers on the day before the EWS, and the winner posted a time that would have seen him place 170th behind Richie Rude. It just goes to show how important it is for pros to ride and train all year to be on top of their game.
