I know (but will probably be proved wrong by someone else!)

This could be the question that nobody on mumsnet know the answer to aprt from me of course...

That beachcart kiting thing. (One went so fast that it actually amputated and eventually killed a woman last year-was in the news a lot if you remember)

Camel racing?

Ouch moondog sounds nasty

In this sport the world record is a speed of 155.834 mph hour

Got it Katemum

Is it skiing from the top of a mountain (they jump out of a helicopter or something?)

Katemum Tue 10-May-05 21:27:44

Cheated, googled the speed

wheresmyfroggy Tue 10-May-05 21:28:33

I didn't [sticking tongue out emoticon]

Wallace Tue 10-May-05 21:32:23

Cheat (stomps foot)

I did think that somebody would do that when I posted the speed

The skiers basically go straight down a very steep slope as fast as they can. There are completely mad, my dearest dh being amongst them

DH wants to argue it with you wallace, he still thinks it would be one man bobsleigh thing called a luge?????

Katemum Tue 10-May-05 21:42:33

Luge seems to be about 90 mph

Katemum Tue 10-May-05 21:42:56

Think i have too much time on my hands tonight!

mmmmchocolate Tue 10-May-05 21:47:51

Thanks Katemum. That shut him up.... Now he can leave me alone to play on here!!!!

Wallace Tue 10-May-05 21:50:07

mmmmmmmchocolate - tell your dh he is wrong

Aparrantly speedskiers experiences forces similar to an aeroplane at take off...And have accelaration as fast as a formula one car!

Wallace Tue 10-May-05 21:50:51

I used to be able to spell too...
