<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Ruby — </span><a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/advice/skills/technique/how-to-train-a-trail-dog-with-tom-and-ruby/"><span style="font-weight: 400">a favourite, recurring member of the <em>BikeRadar</em> YouTube team</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> — is almost certainly </span><a href="https://www.instagram.com/rubythetraildog/"><span style="font-weight: 400">the world’s most famous trail dog</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> and is definitely the world’s fastest. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">With a top speed of over 40mph clocked, this six-</span><span style="font-weight: 400">year-old Hungarian Vizsla is a serious piece of equi-paw-ment.</span></p>

<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Wanting to take a notch off of her hard-earned glory, Jack and Joe thought it would make for a fun afternoon to try racing her in a number of mountain bike challenges. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">However, the pair needed more firepower than their little legs could muster if they were to stand a chance of beating Ruby. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Calling on the assistance of series sponsor, <a href="https://www.bikeradar.com/brand/giant/">Giant</a>, the pair chose to ride a </span><a href="https://www.giant-bicycles.com/gb/trance-eplus-3-pro-electric-bike"><span style="font-weight: 400">Trance E+3 Pro</span></a><span style="font-weight: 400"> to give them the extra oomph required to try and stay on Ruby’s tail. </span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400">Will 500 watts of assistance be enough for the pair to catch Ruby? Are Jack and Joe even moderately competent mountain bikers? Do you have any questions for Ruby? As always, leave your thoughts in the comments here or </span><a href="https://www.youtube.com/user/bikeradar/videos"><span style="font-weight: 400">on our YouTube channel.</span></a></p>
