Sure, or course. Why not? Probably not riding quite as hard as I used to, but that's me and not the bike. Steel is tough, especially good steel. Campy NR is tough. Some other early parts weren't as tough. Full sprints out of the saddle, even over steep hills? Check. Going down twisty descents at nutty speeds? Yes. That's what they were designed for.

Riding hard means different things to different people. If you like to jump off picnic tables and ride straight into curbs, don't do it on a racing bike.
