no way he did 25mph wrote:
25mph is a solid time for a 40k time trial, where the racer is by himself, no drafting. breaking 1hr for a 40k is kind of a standard of being good. maybe like breaking 16 min 5k. you'd be considered a much above average, though not elite with that speed. it was only 16miles but when you look at all the other times, his is the bike split doesn't add up. and if you burn yourself out on the first run, then hammer the bike, you will be hurting on the 2nd run. but unless he's the only guy with a tailwind, then no way he did 25mph. i can do a sub 55 min 40k time trial and i'll bet tons of money that i'm a much much better cyclist than him.
How about if he sat out a lap and no one noticed?
