Weight assists with gravity... heavier people will generally carry more speed on the DH's.. but once you hit an uphill you will go slower then a lighter person.

If you go the same speed as skinnny guys pedalling their asses off while you coast.. imagine how fast you could go if you pedalled!;) Look at Nathan Rennie - he is quite large compared to say Steve Peat - yet both Pedal like crazy and make up speed in different ways..
