I'm not sure, but I think I was paying too much attention to my GPS device. I just HAD to know how fast I was going and how steep the grade was.
There's a time and a place for everything, and bombing down a steep mountainside is not it
That's a great thing about keeping a track log, so you can not only view your maximum speed but also work out average speeds over a section of your own choosing.
I remember how thrilled I was when I realised I'd covered a mile in under two minutes. Never mind the fact the mile I selected started with a nice downhill runup. I might even have maintained the speed for longer had it not been for a red traffic light in the way.
