New world record averaging over 30mph!

Evans sets new Irish ten mile TT record
By Shane Stokes,

Former Irish record-holder Tommy Evans looks set to reclaim his place at the top after a scorching ride in the Jim Traynor Memorial ten-mile time trial last night. The Lindsay Ford rider stormed the distance at an average speed of over thirty miles per hour to record a time of 19 minutes and 23 seconds, 15 seconds better than the record set two years ago by fellow northern rider David McCann.

Evans' time will have to be ratified by Cycling Ireland before it is officially confirmed, but it is highly unlikely that there will be any problems. It had been announced beforehand that he was aiming to set a new ten-mile standard and all the officials will have been in place.

Hmmmm....maybe I could cover 7 or 8 miles in his time. Really sad to do a twenty minute race and be 3 mile behind at the end. This guy must have an incredible pain threshold!
Less than 10 min... Of course, I'm in a car... nmnoveread

I would imagine that the world record is quite a bit faster than that.

Yeah, when you think top pros are doing better than 34 mph in hour long time trials and for short TTs they're hitting absurd speeds you wonder what the ten mile time would be. Then again, I know Chris Boardman has only broken nineteen minutes a couple of times in his career and he is one of the best at that distance over the past decade or so. Probably not too far off the world record...
drafting has its benefits... (nm)funknuggets
