PAN AM GAMES: BLATCHFORD RIDES 9.983 

Breaking news from the Pan Am Games in Guadalajara — USA’s Michael Blatchford rode a 9.983-second Flying 200m TT during the qualifying round for the Sprint Tournament.  That’s over 45 miles per hour!

I don’t have official results to confirm this, I saw it on the internet so it must be true.  Check out the video HERE.  There’s also a live video stream from the velodrome HERE (and it’s actually high quality).

Thanks to Alfred for the video link.

Flying 200m TT — Gearing x Time x Cadence

This is a very useful chart to calculate how fast your legs have to spin in order to get a certain Flying 200 time (don’t worry about the highlighted rows, that’s just for personal reference from the creator of the chart).

For example, last night at Encino Velodrome, Ryan Barrett ran a 12-second Flying 200 on a 52x14 gear which means he was spinning it around 125 rpm.  What a beast!  My legs were moving about the same speed on my effort but I was a second slower on my 51x15 gear.  Time to get a 14T cog!

Found on Kissena Track Racing.  Thanks!
