|If you are looking at your computer at that point, you're in trouble.
With a good leadout, 40 mph sounds about right. You should be able to hit significantly higher speed with a leadout than solo. How fresh you are makes a difference, too.
Timing and strategy can be more important than pure strength, though, that is, a slower rider can outsprint a faster one by doing it just right.
