Max Speed?

For those with speed apps on their phone, how fast have you been?

I hit 45 going down a black today. I was determined to hit 50+ but my friend talked me out of it because i was going down alone

Over 50 mph GPS, looking at the display. I would guess over 60 mph not looking at the screen when I could pay attention to not being a Bono

116 kmh or 72mph top speed.

85 kmh or 52 mph max sustained speed ( at least 10 sec.)

Olympic athletes only go around 120km/h. I have to question that, but if it is possible,

63mph is as fast I've clocked myself. Anything up to about 40 or so just feels like cruising. Over 45 and you realize you're going pretty darn fast. Over 50 and you're hauling ass. Over 60 and you're starting to question your sanity.

Re: Max Speed?

To be honest, while it felt very fast, I was also suspicious the first time. I did check it against my car and it was accurate.

I thought about a glitch in the phone's reading, but I did again 2 weeks ago in very fast conditions...

I just checked. They hit 130km/h. But congrats on that type of speed. Crazy!

Thanks, but I still have some doubts about it. That's why the app (AlpineReplay) provide the sustained speed. They say themself that the top speed is not that reliable...

71.4 MPH so far this season according to ski tracks app, however accurate it is.
My buddies got in the high 60's so I think it's pretty close.

Racing on a fast day down starfire or little go devil at key, can't remember which run. It was early in the A.M. during a weekday.
