I do a 17.0 mile standard ride once a week or so, and my PR
is about 54:30, usually I do it at 58 minutes. These guys did 18.2 miles in the timetrial. The last place finisher was Wim Vansevenant (BEL), Silence-Lotto, who did it in 55:49. More than half the field did it in under 40 minutes. It amazes me how much better these guys are than me, and how weak and pathetic I really am.
Cycling is the only sport I think where you can make realistic comparisons bewteen your own performance and the pros.
