A couple of images from this years Tour de France... Stage 18, Blagnac to Brive. I ride this section of road occasionally and I'm usually doing around 25 mph or so.... these guys were absolutely flying, I'd guess around 45 to 50 mph.
The first image is of the breakaway group which included David Millar, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Alexandre Vinokourov, Michael Albasini.
The second is of the peleton who who were in full "chase down mode" at this point. You can just see the Yellow Jersey (and final winner) Bradley Wiggins in the middle surrounded by other Sky riders.
