Can I ask what time you did on those gears? Also, if possible, the next time you do a F200, try and get 50m splits and include the leading 50m. That will give you some indication of where your problems will lie. Top speed is something that will come in time with progression of strength and riding position. Also, don't underestimate just how fit you need to be to sprint. Laying around all day and doing some weights and a few bike efforts won't get you there. To be fast you actually have to be very fit, and I think a whole stack of sprinters don't realize that - I didn't
