I know that but generally to get the same wattage/speed at higher cadence it's a lot higher cadence.

One easy way to estimate speeds is to look at a video of the sprint and see how many seconds it takes to cover the last few hundred metres. This is not too difficult especially if you play the video at half or quarter speed over the measuring points. There are distance flags for the riders to time their sprint to the finish line, so obviously you need to be able to see these in the video!
