We could spend our whole lunch break watching this

Nothing much to say about this really, just watch and enjoy this fantastically executed face plant. It's a perfect ten, we reckon. If anyone knows who Ian is, let us know and we'll send him some road.cc socks for his star turn...

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

Bless Ian! Come on Road.CC it must be worth more than a pair of socks I think a 'Road.CC' L/S jersey should be sent to. Well caught on video!

Think Ian needs something to wash his (white!) bike down with (Disk brakes it does looks brand new!)I bet it's still in the garage unwashed. I think some beer will do the trick (I know I'm pushing it!)  4 4 4

Contact keith [at] 3peakscyclocross.org.uk who could inform Ian to contact you on his new found internet stardom and sock/jersey/beer haul #britainsgottalent

Guess he should've carried his bike over that soft bit like the others.

Having gone over the bars in a race a few weeks ago and knackered my wrist in the process I'm glad to see Ian had a softer, if wetter, landing.

Hey, we found him! he's a mate of Ashton from Hope.

I notice that you are trying to discover the identity of the star of the 3 Peaks face plant video that you have featured on the front page of the website. He is a friend of mine called Ian Ashworth (race number 333) and it was his first time at the 3 Peaks race. I’ve just called him to let him know about his new found fame and he had no idea that the video had even been uploaded to You Tube!!! It was filmed the son of one of our friends, whose dad was also doing the race.

The "here's mud in your eye" line every time he goes down the pub with his mates is going to get tired pretty soon I reckon  3

That's a brand new Crosslight Pro6 that he's riding [well 'not riding']. Disc brakes are good, but sometimes they just can't save you!

Somebody tweeted yesterday that CX was all about taking part and getting a funny photo of yourself on the Internet. If that is true; Ian is a legend!  1
