How much difference do you seasoned TT racers see between your average speeds for a 10 mile (or thereabouts) time trials and 40k's (25 miles)? While I haven't done all that many, I have seen about a 2 mph difference. Is that normal?

Given similar terrain and course set-up (loop vs out-and-back), and given that you are equally trained for the distance, your speed will be minimally different. For me, that was less than .3 mph difference.
