Check the "Breaking Away" clip on the drafting scene. Dave Stoller hit 60 according to the truck driver's hand signals (five fingers extended, then one finger extended.) He was over 55 and when the movie was made that was the national speed limit on Interstate highways, that is why the Highway patrolman pulled the truck over and Dave went around them.
