Is it possible to ride +100% spd mount before lvl 60?

PvP mounts (black ones) are available for purchase on rank 11 (Commander/Lieutenant General) or higher.
Minimal character level requirement for rank 11 is lvl 53.
PvP mount require only Apprentice rank (75 skill points) of Riding skill and character level of 40.

It seems like nothing prevents you from riding +100% spd mount before lvl 60.
Is it really possible?
Have anyone done this?

It is indeed possible to get a PvP Mount without being 60, and as far as I know it's been done on retail. However, given the way Ranking works, Rank 11 can't be reached before level 53.

Yes, this is possible. On retail I had a a rogue on Frostmane US that was in a level 59 twink guild called 'Tokens in the Mail'. I only reached rank 8 on my rogue (got Justicar though!), but, a few of my guildies reached rank 11 and had 100% mounts as level 59's. As you can imagine, it was quite overpowered being insanely twinked AND having 100% mounts in BGs when everyone else was on 60% mounts.

Yes its possible, max rank for 50-59 bracket is r12. No other bracket under 49 can achieve R11. As far as it being worth doing? God no.

Why stop at Rank 12 you ask? Because a golden helmet is all I need. Besides Marshal is my IRL title.
