Could have been on the concrete, or the sliding sideways on the cinders, or being dragged towards the barbed wire on the grass... it was all too quick I didn't get to check the speed enroute :shock: I'd already got a 37.9 on the grass on the 3m Ace earlier in the day.

Should have been there Oobee you could have shown us how it should be done... we may have squeezed a bit more out ;) Next time mate, hopefully with better shoes on me buggy :)

I think daves technique of squeezing your head down between your knees, holding your breath and closing your eyes works well lol
