One mostly forgotten factor contributing to the amazing average speeds attained in the '50s by the British time trialing elite: most time trails were conducted in those days on open courses, i.e., with automobile traffic running parallel to the riders and buffeting them along at higher speeds than they would otherwise have attained.
