They seem pretty bloody good rather than moderate achievements.


The 40km TT is pretty poor compared to the run, you'd need to be a very light very efficient mid 30's male to be able to run that fast and produce so little power that 56min is all you can do.

But of course cycling is hugely equipment dependent in a way that running is not.

Only one person aged 30-39 swam <18minutes in competition last year. Granted more could but choose not to enter to focus on other events, but 17 minutes is still a top level for an amateur swimmer.
