When I started, we didn't have computers that auto-paused and century times were total time including stops. At that time, my wife and I were racing and 5 hour centuries were semi-common in groups or when we rode a tandem. In not so modern history, 2006, I did a 100 mile TT in a hair over 5 hours (100.4@5h9m) which I was very happy with since I was 55 at the time and 50# overweight. Not in the mood to ever work that hard again.
