I am always amazed when I see pro riding on TV. It shows them going along on the flat at 32-33 mph. I don't hit those speeds going down hill pedaling as hard as I can. I don't think I have ever hit those speeds on the flat even with a very strong tailwind.

Well, I _used_ to be able to top 30 mph in a sprint. But that was a
long time ago.

And the older I get, the faster I was. ;-)

Beating stop lights I can get up to a little over 30 and then can't spin any faster. I bought a 53 tooth but haven't put it on yet.
