I found out that i have a talent for sprinting.
Being new to riding in my 3rd race in a handicap i finished the race in the last group but crossed the line at 56km/hr. This was with no tail or head wind and on a flat less then perfect road. I think i could of gone faster as i still had a couple of gears to go, so i think i could of reached 60km/hr without too much trouble.
Just out of curiousity, what is the record for a flat sprint on a regular bike? I would like to get into sprinting as i think i can get a lot better in it.
