One thing I noticed is that almost none of them used aero bars. They used drop bars instead. This was indoors, so front disc, and presumably less wind. I wonder if outdoors, with wind, maybe a multispoke front wheel?, if more racers would use aero bars.
At Worlds, the next two age groups up were actually even faster. Aussies Geoff Stoker (34.046) winning gold in the 55-59 while Gary Mandy (33.942) took the top step in the 60-64 ranks. I believe Stoker ages up next year so both will be battling it out in the 60-64's.
