Any takers?

Like most of you, I am sure, one of the things I love about mat riding is the speed they can achieve.
Mark Thomson has probably ridden a mat at speeds way faster than any of us have experienced and that must be one hell of a ride. I particularly like this shot that portrays exactly how he goes about doing so. Note the head placement!

He has issued a challenge and it will be interesting to see if anyone takes it up.
