    A classical many-body model for the phase dynamics of randomly pinned charge density waves is found to exhibit stretched exponential relaxation below threshold. The statistics of single particle relaxation is highly non-trivial and can only be deduced from known scaling behaviour of intermittent trajectories in an uncoupled approximation. This is compared with results from present single-particle approaches. The self-similarity properties at the dynamical phase transition at threshold are investigated.
