Video: Roadie Vs Mountain Biker - who is quicker?

Marc Beaumont takes on Tobyn Horton in film to celebrate Madison clothing's 40th anniversary...

Madison launched its clothing range 40 years ago in June, and as part of its celebrations unveiled a new limited edition line earlier this year, called Madison 77.

As it continues to mark four decades of its clothing, Madison has now produced a video that pitches two of its sponsored riders against each other, but with a twist.

The film shot by Nico Turner, sees Marc Beaumont of Madison Saracen and Tobyn Horton from Madison Genesis undertake challenges to try and discover who is quicker – a pro downhill mountain biker or a pro road cyclist.

Watch the video above to find out who came out on top.
