Well, physically, anyway.
right!!! today I did a 5 mile section on a new paved closed road so I could go all out. For the 5 miles I averaged 19.8 mph (just a tough of a headwind). I know if I had somebody to ride/draft with I could get that number up a couple of MPH, but seriously a pro's cruising speed is 28+...INSANE!!
