Who's fitter, Downhiller's or Enduro Riders? A question often asked by many fans out there.

We pit Adam Brayton and Elliott Heap against each other in a few tests in the gym and out on the bikes to see how they measure up against each other.

Test 1 - 30 Second Power Output - Using a smart trainer like many of you folks at home, we measured their power output for 30 seconds.

Test 2 - Sustained Climbing but keeping the heart rate under 140BPM - This test was to see who climbed the fastest whilst keeping their heart rate under control.

Test 3 - Strava Hunting! - We went to a 'locals' hill hunting for KOM's on the some short but sweet tracks near to us here at Fit4Racing.

 BPM-limited XC should become an Olympic event - would be awesome to see the 6mph sprint finish!!

 Massive unfair advantage. Granddad’s heart probably can’t go above 140 any more, plus he probably remembers the glacier carving that hill, never mind the trail that’s on it.

 "I gotta blow my tires off, they still got flames on 'em. One sec..." Worth a watch just for that one-liner.

 I’m impressed you managed to find a trail in the north lakes that brayton didn’t already have the KOM.
