    That aint a marathon bro, especially for a handcycle. Putting out zero effort isn't a marathon.

    And some of you call me crazy spaniard? i`m just a little baby compared with this mad doing a downhill without lights, in some curves was near death.
    I'm probably in the minority here, but honestly that doesn't look that hard, and it isn't that great. The guy is going super fast, in his own lane, down hill. Why is that so "crazy?" Being that it looks like it's at dusk, raises the bar a little bit, but only a little bit.

    However if this was a race (which it wasn't I understand) there are many handcyclists that would be right behind this guy and or pass him at will. The speed is a non issue, the only thing that makes this dangerous are the time of day and on coming traffic.

    i wasn`t saying this guy is crazy about the speed, i could go faster doing a wheelie in my chair
    was about the time of the day without lights in his bike, any car driver without paying enough attention could have invaded the opposite line in the curve thinking that nobody is coming and have killed.

    In race are no cars.

    Agreed, I just wanted to put that out there.
