Didn't realise he was such a legend now ! He used to come in our shop in Machynleth years ago. Really nice guy, people may laugh, but this guy has got more grit and determination than a lot of people. :D keep it up Barracuda Bob :D

ok maybe not a legend..........more of a local hero in the midlands and Wales..attends a lot of DH races and has a beard :D i believe he even offer DH training due to his years within the sport now.

I tried points series in the 90's but soon found out the difference between fit local on local trails and budding atheletes :shock: who could climb up a grassy slope faster than i could come down it !!!

I see the comments under the video saying he is pretty slow.
Fair play to him though.
