The Savage Speeders are a Marble League team that have uniforms colored red, white, and yellow. The original members of the team are Speedy, Rapidly, Swifty and Velocity, the latter of whom was replaced by Whizzy starting in 2017, though Velocity rejoined the team as reserve member the next year. In 2020 Velocity rejoined as a main member while Whizzy became the reserve.

The Savage Speeders hail from the European cities of Accellaise, Pace, and Vellis. They were already professional marble athletes themselves, even before Marble League, having competed in Le Tour de Vellis. They are also known to be pretty secretive about their training methods.[1]

The Savage Speeders were the first Marble League champions, having won Marble League 2016 with four gold medals. However, they are also infamous for ruining their title challenges due to having issues with consistency between events, with them losing their title challenges in 2017 and 2018. However, they have finished within the top half of every Marble League season so far, including two runners-up finishes in both 2017 and 2018. In Marble League 2020, the Savage Speeders got off to a rough start, ending up in last place two events in, but the team had a strong second half of the season, and eventually went on to win the Marble League for the second time, thereby completing the treble, after winning both Marbula One Season 1 and the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers.

The Savage Speeders were trailing behind the Hazers throughout Marbula One Season 1, but eventually became the first winners of Marbula One.

As one of the few teams that have appeared in every Marble League edition so far, the Savage Speeders are the most successful team in Marble League history and hold a number of Marble League records. They also hold the record for the most gold medals at 11 and the most total medals at 24. They also currently hold the record of having most medals in Marbula One with 9 medals.

History

Pre-Marble League

Four of the original members of the Savage Speeders

The Savage Speeders come from three European cities – Accellaise on the southern coast, Pace on the same coastline to the east, and the capital city of Vellis, each of which are individually known for their cultural, artistic, and economic significance. Speedy and Rapidly are siblings from Accellaise, Velocity comes from Pace, and Swifty and Whizzy are friends who hail from Vellis.

The five met in 2010 during Le Tour de Vellis, a marathon event held in Vellis and running throughout the country. Speedy and Rapidly had previously competed in local tournaments at Accellaise, so they had no hesitation forming a team with Velocity, Whizzy and Swifty when Velocity brought up the idea. The five trained vigorously over the next two years in order to qualify for the marathon. After successfully qualifying, they then made headlines by finishing in fifth, a feat unheard of for a rookie team.

The team disclosed very little about their training as they consider it one of their most important secrets. They continued to compete in the next three years, never finishing below the top five. In 2014, they won the Tour for the first time, and repeated that victory the next year. The public started to compare the team to the unstoppable force of early berserkers, describing them as "savage". The team liked it and decided to adopt that word for themselves, becoming the Savage Speeders.[4]

2016

The Savage Speeders were approached by Greg Woods in private to see whether they were interested in taking part in Marble League 2016. After accepting Woods' invitation, the team announced they would retire from Le Tour de Vellis. They purchased a stadium in Accellaise and named it Le Course de Sauvage. The lack of explanation led to widespread confusion and disappointment from their fans.

The Savage Speeders win the Relay Race

The Savage Speeders competed in Marble League 2016, but during the tournament, Whizzy chose to watch from the sidelines. The team started Marble League 2016 fairly inauspiciously, finishing in fifth in the first event, Balancing. They earned their first gold medal and set a new Marble League Record in Event 2, the Relay Race. After accumulating a single point throughout the next three events, the team were starting to fall behind. But then, Velocity won the team another gold medal in Event 6, the Water Race, and Rapidly won one more and broke another Marble League Record in Event 8, the 10 Meter Sprint.

However, the Savage Speeders didn't earn any more points until the final event, the Hurdles. In the event, Speedy made it to the final. The final race came down to a photo finish between them and Yellup of Mellow Yellow. The slow-motion replay revealed that Speedy had won, winning their team their fourth gold of Marble League 2016, and in turn winning them the Marble League championship. The final race of the hurdles event holds the record of the closest grand final race in Marble League history (0.01 seconds).

The Savage Speeders win Marble League 2016

Following their victory, the Speeders went around the world on a victory tour. The tour ended with the team arriving in Vellis, where a day-long parade was held along the same route as the year's Le Tour de Vellis. The team were presented with an honorary key to the city, leading to the team hashtag, "#SpeedIsKey".

Over the next six months, the Savage Speeders revealed nothing to the public about their offseason training, which becomes standard practice for the team. Their stadium is usually closed to the public and is guarded by local police. In response, some marble sports fans posted joke events on MarBook every year, which involved raiding the stadium in an attempt to discover the team's secrets. None have ever happened, although one year a streaker rolled past the stadium and was apprehended by security.[4]

2017

Since the Savage Speeders had won the previous Marble League, they automatically qualified for Marble League 2017 and did not have to participate in the qualifiers. Whizzy took Velocity's place and participated in Event 1, the Funnel Race, coming 4th. This was followed by a sixth place finish for Rapidly in Event 2, the Long Jump, and an eleventh place finish for the team in Event 3, Fidget Spinner Collision. The team had only accumulated 27 points in the first three events, and were in 11th place overall.

Savage Speeders on the podium after the Relay Run

However, the Savage Speeders proved their status with a silver medal for Speedy in the 5-meter Sprint, followed by another silver for Swifty in the Hurdles. The team jumped to first, then stretched their lead to 22 points with a gold medal in Event 6, the Relay Run. They hovered around a 20-point lead for the next two events, Block Pushing and the High Jump. They then went on to win another gold medal in Event 9, the Steeplechase. The team remained in the lead after the event, and were 27 points ahead of Mellow Yellow.

Unfortunately, the Savage Speeders could not keep their momentum and did not medal again. The next two events, Archery and the Underwater Race, saw the team perform very poorly, earning only 7 points in the process. Meanwhile, the O'rangers, who were high in morale at the time, rose to second overall and were 10 points behind following their silver medal in the Underwater Race.

The Savage Speeders come second in Marble League 2017

At this point, the Savage Speeders started to fear they could end up losing their much-desired second Marble League championship. That fear was confirmed when Swifty was eliminated in the heats of the final event, the Sand Rally. At the final of the event, the O'rangers finished second, winning another silver medal. As a result, the O'rangers had won Marble League 2017, while the Savage Speeders, after having stayed in first for the last seven events, dropped to second, six points behind. They had just missed a second championship win, but had still automatically qualified for Marble League 2018.[4]

2018

The Savage Speeders disappeared from the public for much of the offseason, and made their next public appearance at the Marble League 2018 Friendly Round, having automatically qualified for Marble League 2018. Velocity rejoined the team as the reserve member. The Savage Speeders came third in all events and finished the Friendly Round in last place. They were not very happy with this.

The Savage Speeders win bronze in the 5 Meter Ice Dash

True to the fears from their poor Friendly Round performance, the Savage Speeders had waves of good and bad finishes throughout Marble League 2018. The team started the season with a bronze medal in the 5 Meter Ice Dash, putting them behind the Oceanics and the rookie Hazers in the standings. However, Speedy faltered in the Ski Jump and came in last, and the team plunged to 9th overall.

Because of this, Velocity was called in to replace Speedy for the next team event, the Halfpipe. It worked, and the Savage Speeders won a silver medal, despite coming in last in the first round. The team then had a disappointing thirteenth place finish in Event 4, the Bobsled, but claimed another silver medal in Event 5, Speed Skating. After a twelfth place finish in Team Pursuit, they yet again claimed their third silver medal of the season in the Snow Rally. This finally put the team in first place in the standings. Even then, many fans believe this silver medal was the reason why the Savage Speeders did not win Marble League 2018.

The Savage Speeders come second in Marble League 2018

The Savage Speeders held onto the lead until Event 9, Curling. Their second-to-last finish in the event made the team drop to third in the standings, and they remained there after Event 10, the Biathlon. Despite managing to finish on the podium in the final two events, Ice Hockey and the Sand Mogul Race, the team fell one point short of the eventual overall winners, the Midnight Wisps, who passed them in the last minute of Marble League 2018. For the second year in a row the Speeders had just missed out on the Championship and had automatically qualified for Marble League 2019.

The Savage Speeders made tow public appearances during the off-season. Whizzy represented the team in the 100 Meter Water Race, where they finished sixth. The team also took part in the Amazing Maze Marble Race. In the group stage, the Savage Speeders missed out on first in their group, but qualified for the semifinals thanks to their high number of points. The team went on to advance to the final and finish third.[4]

2019

The Savage Speeders' next offseason public appearance was at the Marble League 2019 Friendly Round, which they again attended due to their automatic qualification for Marble League 2019. Once again, the team finished in last with only nine points. In fact, they didn't win any of the four events of the round.

In late February 2019, the Savage Speeders hired Quickly as their coach. After observing the team members' pent-up frustration from missing out on the last two Marble League championship titles, Quickly deduced the team blamed the other teams for their losses instead of trying to get over those losses, leading to a lot of toxic energy. Quickly advised them to transmute their toxic energy into a positive performance.

The Savage Speeders win their second consecutive gold in the Funnel Race

The Savage Speeders had a strong start to Marble League 2019, with a gold medal for Rapidly in the first event, the Underwater Race, followed by another gold for Speedy in Event 2, the Funnel Race. Afterwards, the team slipped in performance, placing within the top half in only three of the next seven events. They held the lead in the standings for the first four events, but in Event 5, the 5 Meter Sprint, Whizzy shocked everyone by finishing in dead last, and the team slipped to second. They hoped to recoup in Event 6, the Relay Run, but they came last in their heat and finished in 12th. They then dropped to 7th place after the Summer Biathlon, and stayed there after Event 9, the Hurdles Race. A bronze medal in the Hubelino Maze brought the team up to 4th place.

The next event, the Dirt Race, set the tone for the rest of the season. Swifty qualified for the final. They nearly crashed out during the first third of the final, but with a burst of speed, they rolled past Ducky of the Green Ducks into first. However, just before the finish line, Pinky Toe of the Pinkies zoomed down the course out of nowhere, ending up just behind Swifty, who promptly responded by trying to block them. Pinky Toe got past Swifty and won the Pinkies their first ever gold medal. Swifty was so stunned, they didn't even notice they were passed by Ducky. Rozzy of the Raspberry Racers beat them for the bronze medal by five-hundredths of a second.

The Savage Speeders lose to the Pinkies in Collision

The Savage Speeders were left trailing the top three teams by twenty points. A string of mediocre finishes followed. After Event 14, Surfing, the team could still finish in the top three with good finishes in the final two events, but they fell apart and came last in Event 15, Collision. They fell to fifth, losing out on fourth to Mellow Yellow. Rapidly could not turn this around as they finished the final event, the Sand Rally, in fifth. The Savage Speeders concluded Marble League 2019 in fifth overall, the team's worst result so far. Not only was this the first time they had finished outside of the top three, this was also the first time they would not automatically qualify for a Marble League tournament.

Despite their disappointing performance, the team were invited to take part in Marbula One Season 1. The team promptly accepted the invitation, and chose Speedy and Rapidly, going by the nicknames of "Speed Freak" and "Maroon Missile" respectively, to represent them. The Savage Speeders had also been selected to host the first ever Marbula One Grand Prix[5]. The rest of the team went on to prepare Le Course de Sauvage for Marbula One, building the course themselves. They named the course the Savage Speedway, and also renamed the stadium to clear up confusion.[4]

2020

Marbula One Season 1

Speedy was selected to take part in the Savage Speedway Grand Prix and, during the qualifiers, set a time of 31.20 seconds. Unfortunately, everyone else managed to beat that time and they qualified in last place. However, Speedy was able to make up for it in the race. By lap 3, they had moved up into third place, and Speedy eventually finished the race in fifth, earning ten points and also an extra point for setting the fastest lap.

Rapidly helps Wospy start again at the O'raceway Grand Prix

Rapidly debuted at the second Grand Prix, the O'raceway Grand Prix, and qualified in sixth. During the race, Rapidly managed to enter the top five and stayed there for most of the race. They only left the top five when they assisted Wospy of the Midnight Wisps, who had fallen off the conveyor belt and stopped rolling. Their bump got Wospy moving again. Rapidly climbed up the ranks again into second, and closed in on Billy of the Green Ducks. Ultimately, Rapidly was unable to surpass them and finished in second place. The Savage Speeders rose to third in the team standings.

Living up to their name, the Savage Speeders continued to do well in the next two events. Speedy came sixth at the Momotorway Grand Prix, while Rapidly got another second place finish at the Hivedrive Grand Prix. This put them into first in the individual racers' standings and helped the Savage Speeders stay in third in the team standings.

However, Rapidly was tired from their last Grand Prix and finished the Greenstone Grand Prix in 15th place. Coach Quickly decided to put Speedy in for the Short Circuit Grand Prix, where they finished in third after leading the race for four of the laps. This put the Savage Speeders into first overall, but Rapidly lost the lead in the individual standings. Rapidly managed to redeem themselves by finishing seventh in their last Grand Prix, the Razzway Grand Prix, but the team dropped to second, fourteen point behind the Hazers, thanks to Smoggy's race win there. Rapidly was no longer able to win the individual Racers' Championship.

The Savage Speeders went into the final looking to win the first ever Marbula One season, just like in Marble League 2016. Speedy captured pole position at the Qualifiers at the Midnight Bay Grand Prix, which was unfortunately mired in controversy due to the fact that they started their qualifying lap a few seconds after Clementin of the O'rangers started their lap. Even though Speedy was found to have gained no advantage from their early start, some angry fans started to accuse the Savage Speeders of cheating once again.

The Speeders win Marbula One Season 1

Speedy and shot into the lead from the beginning, staying there for all but two of the laps. Their fight for the lead with Prim of Team Primary notwithstanding, Speedy was still able to finish the race in first, earning them the much-desired individual Racers' Championship title. With Hazy of the Hazers finishing in eighth, the Savage Speeders had also won the Marbula One Season 1 Teams' Championship. Rapidly finished in sixth in the individual Racers' Championship.[4]

Marble League 2020

Sometime after Marbula One, the team had a change in their roster, where Whizzy and Velocity would swap places, with Velocity back to the main team roster and Whizzy becoming the reserve member. The Savage Speeders entered the Marble League 2020 Qualifiers, their first qualifiers ever. They managed to finish in the top three in all but one event and comfortably qualified for Marble League 2020 in first overall.

Unfortunately the Speeders did not keep up their good performances. In the first event, Balancing, the Speeders failed to have anyone land in the finish zone, finishing in 14th. They followed this up by finishing second-to-last in the Halfpipe, as they dropped to last place overall for the first time in their history with just 3 points.

Whizzy wins a bronze medal in Funnel Endurance

The Speeders started to recover with a bronze medal in the Funnel Endurance (courtesy of Whizzy), then a 9th place finish in the Newton's Cradle. The Savage Speeders continued to deliver, with consistent top half finishes in the next 5 events, including another bronze medal in the 5 Meter Hurdles, taking them to eighth overall.

The Speeders continued their upward trajectory with three consecutive podiums. They won their third bronze medal in the 5 Meter Sprint followed by two golds in the Black Hole Funnel and the Relay Run, propelling them into 2nd overall, ten points behind the dominant O'rangers with four events remaining. There podium streak was ended by a miscalculated jump early on by Whizzy in the High Jump, causing them to finish last. The O'rangers took advantage of this and won the event with a dominating performance, extending their lead at the top to 35 points, making it almost impossible for anyone to surpass them.

Capitalizing on the Oceanics' upset victory over the O'rangers in the first round of the next event, the Team Aquathlon, the Savage Speeders fought their way to the final, earning themselves a silver medal after losing to the Midnight Wisps, shrinking the O'rangers lead to 20 points. Then, in a colossal improvement from the previous year, the team won a third gold medal in Collision. This performance, on top of the O'rangers' 16th place finish (another reverse of the 2019 event), brought the Savage Speeders to the top of the leaderboard, with a slender 5 point lead carried into the final event: the Marble Marathon.

The Savage Speeders win Marble League 2020

The Marathon initially went well for Speedy, who performed well in the placement race to finish 2nd. Unfortunately, a hard collision as the actual event started cost Speedy all their momentum, leaving them stranded. However, Speedy pulled back a few spots towards the end to finish in 9th. With only an 8th place finish for Wospy of the Midnight Wisps and an 11th place finish for Kinnowin of the O'rangers, Speedy had done enough. The Savage Speeders, despite their poor start, finally had their revenge after their 2017 heartbreak, and won Marble League 2020, becoming the first team in the history of Marble League to win the championship twice, shattering the Wisps and the O'rangers' hopes of a repeat championship. After the trophy presentation, the Speeders formed a circle around the trophy with the title rivals O'rangers in celebration, as a gesture of goodwill and sportsmanship. Both teams, alongside the third-placed Minty Maniacs, secured a spot in Marble League 2021.

Marbula One Season 2

Speedy falls off the track at the Minty Mania Grand Prix

With their historic treble-winning campaign, the Savage Speeders were invited to participate in Marbula One Season 2, which they accepted, and sent out Speedy and Rapidly again for the season. The season didn't start off too well. During lap 5 in the first Grand Prix, Speedy fell off the conveyor belt, and fell in-between the guides. The Speeders subsequently dropped out of the Grand Prix. Thankfully, it was confirmed that Speedy's injuries were minor, and they were able to compete again.[6] Unfortunately Rapidly also had a poor start to the season, finishing in last in the O'raceway Grand Prix. As a result, the team dropped to second-to-bottom overall.

In the Honeydome Grand Prix, Speedy had fully recovered from the injury and took pole position, earning the Speeders their first point of the season. Then, Speedy came back from 8th place to first overall and kept it throughout the second-half of the race, winning the Grand Prix and taking the Speeders up to 5th place overall. However, Rapidly struggled again at the Aquamaring Grand Prix and again finished last, dropping them to 7th overall. At the next Grand Prix, the Tumult Turnpike Grand Prix, Speedy only just qualified in 16th but managed to fight up to a 9th place finish. Rapidly's misfortune continued at the Arctic Circuit Grand Prix as they finished the Qualifiers in 17th, failing to qualify for the Grand Prix, the first time the Speeders' had failed to qualify for any event. As a result, the Speeders were in 11th overall halfway through Marbula One Season 2.

2021

Marble League Winter Special

Savage Speeders losing to Raspberry Racers in Ice Hockey Final

The Savage Speeders were invited to participate in the Marble League Winter Special and accepted. They got off to a decent start, with Swifty getting 5th in the Ice Dash, along with Whizzy getting 6th in Snowboard Cross. However, Velocity's 15th place in Speed Skating dropped them to 9th in the standings. A 6th place finish in Bobsled was not enough and they dropped to 10th in the standings, losing the chance to become champion in this tournament. Still, they ended the Winter Special on a high note by winning a silver medal in Ice Hockey, finishing the tournament in 7th overall.

Marbula One Season 2

After the Winter Special, the second half of Marbula One Season 2 started off with a good performance from Speedy at the Raceforest Grand Prix. After qualifying in 2nd, they battled for the lead throughout the entire race and finished 2nd, losing only to Red Eye of the Crazy Cat's Eyes. With their second podium finish of the season, the Savage Speeders climbed up to 7th overall. At the Momotorway Grand Prix, however, Rapidly continued to struggle and finished last again, sending the team down to 9th overall. With another second place from Speedy at the Palette Park Grand Prix, the Savage Speeders climbed back up to 5th. With three races left to go, however, they were no longer able to defend the Teams' Championship. At the Misty Mountain Grand Prix, Rapidly recovered from their bad form and finished 3rd, not only scoring their first points of the season but also winning their first medal in Season 2. This brought the Speeders up to 4th overall. Speedy then finished 6th at the team's home race, the Savage Speedway Grand Prix. At the final race of the season, the Midnight Bay Grand Prix, Rapidly showed they were actually back to form, and secured their first race win in Marbula One. As a result, the Savage Speeders finished the season in 2nd place overall, with Speedy taking 2nd place in the individual championship as well.

Marbula One Season 2

Main article: Marbula One Season 2

The Savage Speeders competed in the second season of Marbula One, and once again chose Speedy and Rapidly as their racers. Speedy had another good season. After quickly recovering from an accident at the season opener, they were able to win three more medals, one of them being a gold, and finished 2nd in the racers' championship. In contrast, Rapidly's first four races were very disappointing, as they failed to qualify once and finished last in the other three races. However, they were able to recover from their bad form, and won two more medals at their last two races, helping the Savage Speeders finish 2nd in the teams' championship.

Trivia

  • In both the 2016 and 2017 editions of the Marble League, some viewers accused the Savage Speeders of doping due to strong performances in both editions. Jelle's Marble Runs did, however, confirm that all testing discovered no illegal substances[7].
  • After winning Steeplechase on 9 August 2017, the Savage Speeders become the first team to win different events on the same day of different years. They won the Relay Race on 9 August 2016.
  • Each of the Savage Speeders' team members has finished on the podium of individual events at least once.
  • In every Marble League season they have competed in, the Savage Speeders have at one point held the lead for points. They have also won at least three medals per season.
  • The Savage Speeders currently hold the record for the most total medals (24), most gold medals (11), and most silver medals (7) at the Marble League (excluding all Qualifier and Showdown results).
  • The Savage Speeders had been the only team to have automatically qualified for every Marble League edition, until 2019 in which they placed 5th. This still makes them sit as one of only six teams who qualified for every Marble League so far.
  • The Savage Speeders were the third team to win two consecutive gold medals. These medals were in the first two events of Marble League 2019, the Underwater Race and the Funnel Race. The first two teams were the Balls of Chaos and the Midnight Wisps, who achieved the feat during Marble League 2018.
  • The Savage Speeders have a rivalry with a number of other Marble League teams, with the most notable one being the O'rangers due to their statuses of being the titans of Marble Sports.
  • The Savage Speeders have won both inaugural seasons of every major competition they have ever been in. They won Marble League 2016 and Marbula One Season 1.
  • The Savage Speeders became the first team to swap a reserve member and a regular member. This occurred when Velocity became a regular team member, replacing Whizzy.
  • They are the first team to win two Marble Leagues - Marble League 2016 and Marble League 2020, also being the first team to win two different tournaments in one year (Marbula 1 and Marble League).
  • They are the first team to place 16th and 1st in the overall leaderboard at one point in one Marble League.
  • They are currently the only team to lead the overall leaderboard at one point in every Marble League.
