    American flies in to win Gloucestershire cheese rolling contest

    Daredevils defy health and safety zealots by holding Cheese Rolling race in Gloucestershire | Mail Online

    That's not right , we need to train up a British teakdoor member to recliaim the crown next year.


    Since the fifteenth century the cheese has been rolled down the hill, and women, men, girls and boys compete for it in various races.
    Traditionally, the winner of each year's contest is expected to perform a shirtless victory ascent of Cooper's Hill where he or she will return the cheese to its ceremonial plinth. This is done in order to symbolize the eternal cycle of man's creation, release, pursuit and re-capture of his dairy products
    Ideas to be first to roll the cheese down the extra steep hill,

    Bloody Glaws! How could they allow this to happen? No one thought to tie his shoe laces together?

    This year due to pressure from the health and safety mob the wheel of cheese was actually replaced with a foam/polystyrene disc .
    I bet the American would not have won it there had been 70 mile an hour lumps of Double Gloucester flying about.

    The Brits don't give a fcuk who wins. It's the taking part that counts for us, and who buys the beer after. Knowing a bighead yank was taking part they let him win as being a yank he wouldn't have stopped bragging about it. He'd have bought beers for everyone who will have listened to his story. Bless the thick shit.

    He probably thought the foam disc was a lot more tasty than the cheese he is accustomed to back home?

    an 86 year old woman, diana smart, has suplied the cheese since 1986,
    she was warned by the police not to do so this year,

    i think with the septic taking part there were a string of parasitic lawyers in his wake

    2014 Update Britain Regains Cheese Crown !!!

    Our bloody American cousins didn't win it in this year !!!


    Last year, in a bid to make the race safer, revellers had to chase an imitation double Gloucester 200m (656ft) down the hill at Brockworth.This time real cheese was back on the menu



    Action starts at about 30 seconds - and this is just the bottom half of the hill







    Josh Shepherd, 19, from Brockworth, celebrates winning the Men's Downhill race in the Cheese Rolling on Cooper's Hill race near Brockworth, Gloucestershire.

    Some dude busting his ankle in last years race and
    still manages a smile - well almost ....
