Cool beans! Congrats to everyone. I am going to single out Wonderboy for his performance because of all his latest aero-mod work, .

The course: 77 miles and 2:05 hours is 125 minutes. Subtract 10 minutes for mandatory stop. I would subtract another 10 minutes as a safety factor to avoid the penalty. That's 77 miles in 105 minutes. That comes out to :

77 miles / ( 105 minutes / 60 minutes per hour) = 44 MPH

Is that what you guys were shooting for (on average)?

I think we were shooting for making it in under the wire but accidentally came in 10 minutes early anyway
