video of a Brompton race

I'm on the road that moment, but when I came across this I knew the forum would want to see it.

http://gmy.news.yahoo.com/vid/15923071

P.S. I did a quick check for someone else posting the event. But if this ends up being a dupe, my apologies.

Thank you for posting this lovely video for us to watch. I don't quite understand why people are so hung up on the "who is first to post" idea. This reminds me of a large group of people attempting to pass through a doorway that allows only one or two at a time. Everyone wants to be so polite on the other person passes first and no one actually enters. Nothing constructive occurs at a stalemate. I rather we error on multiple posting on the same topic, rather than no post at all and good material like the video is not noticed by the community.

wow, you are still hung up on that? at least OP took the time to look at the forum before posting. you by your own admission don't even read the forum before posting your links. at the time of your posting the identical subject was only a few threads below yours, on the same page. instead of being apologetic you kept on justifying yourself when reminded. you are standing on the wrong soapbox on this one.

I was there this year and last, it's a brilliant really fun ride. I recorded some on-board footage, perhaps you might enjoy it:

The video looked like it was speeded up to make up some dramatic ending. LOL!

I still think everyone was in second gear because there was little passing on that tight course. I bet the winner had a custom made super large chainring for the event. Seriously, once he got in the lead, there was no way you could pass.

It makes me want to ride my Brompton!
