    Is this possible?
    How is this possible? Draft? All descent? Tricked out, nuclear powered e-bike?

    I suck!!

    I would say it’s possible if everything was planned out and all conditions were perfect. It would be nice to know more about the full story.

    I remember all the doubt and negativity Amanda got when she broke every distance cycling record in the books; especially the “there’s no way a girl can do that.”

    Hats off to the man!

    I assume this was on a track because I cannot imagine 100 miles of perfectly flat road, and totally windless, which would seem pretty necessary to ride 33.4 mph for three hours--in the same gear. Even with a couple gears .... hard to imagine. I will wait for confirmation.

    Meanwhile, I dream of getting my average back to 15.

    Done drafting his father's mini-van, at MIS which I think is a NASCAR track. I tend to not pay much attention to 'drafting' records. After all, there are some ridiculous records possible if the draft is good enough.

    The one I posted above was done in England with no draft.
