My son in law does the 40km cycle leg of a Olympic distance triathlon in 60 mins.

Can confirm, I used to be able to do this time for an Oly race when I was younger, lighter and stronger. sigh.

Sprinting to 60 on the flats was no issue either.

You must have a faster push bike than I do.

Depends on the bike and the gearing. Absolutely flat strap on my mountain bike is 27kmh according to my Garmin.
On a decent road bike 30kmh is a bit of a doddle.
There are youtube videos of Tour de France guys hitting 75kmh :eek:
