Racing for lardy boys?

by gandberg   June 30, 2010  

Hello all. Does anyone know of a road bike race or time trial that instead of classifying riders by age, one that riders are selected into groups by weight?

I mean, if this isnt done at the moment, why not? Could have a set of scales at the signing on and finish line to measure both bike and rider. Its something I'd be keen on doing, though its unlikely I'd win unless it was a 200m sprint Thinking

Anyway, just thought I'd ask. Thanks.

Ben and Jerrys could sponsor you

You could do Downhill MTB racing or Track Sprinting

People that do those type of events are usually quite large

I wasn't aware Ben and Jerries actively sponsored larger sportsmen and women? Where do I apply?

See You Next Tuesday.

It's done quite a lot in America where they have a clydesdale class ( but they would, wouldn't they).
