Kasja made good progress in the recent sunny weather with five more centuries. Increasing wind and a snapped gear cable reduced mileage a little in the last few days, but she remains around 625 miles above the Dovey line.



Her imperial Eddington  number creeps slowly towards Billie Dovey's, now at E=83. She requires another 23 rides of 90 miles or more to overtake Billie's E=89.

Day 1 (Amanda Coker) / Day 136 (Kajsa Tylen):

A stunning debut ride from Amanda Coker as she sends a strong message to HAM'R / OYTT / Guinness challengers. She rides 250 miles of repeats around Flatwoods Park, Florida at an average speed of 20 mph in 12 hours. This is further and faster than Kurt's opening day in 2015. Meanwhile Kajsa rides 109 miles from Nottingham to Peterborough as she prepares for her Scandinavian summer riding later this week.

Day 2 (Amanda Coker) / Day 137 (Kajsa Tylen):

Another very strong performance from Amanda as she clocks up 230 miles of Flatwood repeats at 19mph. After two days she is 64 miles ahead Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa heads south for another century ride from Peterborough to Chelmsford as she prepares to move to continental Europe.

Day 3 (Amanda Coker) / Day 138 (Kajsa Tylen):

Another 232 Flatwood miles from Amanda puts her 87 miles ahead of Kurt's WR pace. Her average speed has dropped a little but with an earlier start in the day she continues to make maximum use of the daylight hours. Kajsa continues her migration SE as she rides from Chelmsford, crossing the Thames estuary and through Kent for 96 miles. She is now 712 miles ahead of Billie Dovey's pace, which is the furthest she has been ahead this year.

Day 4 (Amanda Coker) / Day 139 (Kajsa Tylen):

A fourth day of over 230 miles from Amanda along the Flatwood trails. She has a moving average 1.2mph faster than Kurt so far, showing she has the strength for a very significant world record beating annual total. The coming weeks will tell us whether she has the endurance to match it. Kajsa hops over the channel from Dover to Dunkerque and ends up In Bruges after 72 miles of continental riding.

Day 5 (Amanda Coker) / Day 140 (Kajsa Tylen):

Amanda adds 211 miles to now very familiar tracks in Flatwood Park taking her to 1162 miles in 5 days, 120 miles above Kurt's WR pace and over 750 miles above the Dovey line. Kajsa passes the 12,000 milestone with 116 miles along the North Sea coast of Belgium and the Netherlands ending her day in Delft.

Day 6 (Amanda Coker) / Day 141 (Kajsa Tylen):

Consistency seems to be Amanda's style with another 231 Flatwood miles to add to her already impressive total. Nearly 1400 miles in 6 days at an average speed of over 18mph taking her 142 miles above Kurt's WR pace and 906 above the Dovey line. Kajsa rides for 95 miles in the windy flatlands between Rotterdam, The Hague and Hoek van Holland edging her Eddington number ever closer to Billie Dovey's.

Great visuals as usual, Jo.
I do have one question- how do you compute moving average? When I total up Amanda's mileage and divide it by Strava's total moving time I come up with 18.99mph, while you show 18.2.

I am just stunned at the way this is developing .. an Audax style approach is in my opinion .. way off the pace  now. You need cracking bike speed, organised support, good location decisions, organised nutrition plans, good fortune with your health .. and of course good luck too.

I use the GPS data to bin the distance moved into 5 minute chunks and then base the moving average on the number of those 5 minute chunks that show some movement over a few hundred metres. This means its can lower the moving speed value a little if there is some partial stoppage inside a 5 minute interval. On the other hand, it does reduce arbitrary distance/speed produced by a 'wandering GPS' when the device is stationary.

Day 7 (Amanda Coker) / Day 142 (Kajsa Tylen):

Kajsa does her first 200km day in rather fine conditions as she rides from Holland to Friesland including the impressive 30km Afsluitdijk. She is now around 795km above the Dovey line. Amanda puts in another remarkable 233 mile day on the same stretch of Flatwood Park trails. She has accumulated 1625 miles in her first week. This is the third highest weekly total of any of the modern HAMR/OYTT challengers and only short of the top spot by 10 miles. She is now 166 miles ahead of world record pace.

Day 8 (Amanda Coker) / Day 143 (Kajsa Tylen):

More Flatwood repeats for Amanda - 220 miles of them - sees her lengthen her lead over Kurt's WR pace to 178 miles. Her average riding speed is also increasing steadily and is the fastest of all the modern record challengers. Kajsa tours Friesland for 85 miles taking her to around 800 miles above the Dovey line.

Kajsa continues to increase her 2016 imperial Eddington number. She currently stands at E=86 miles, requiring

4 more days of 87 miles or more for E=87
8 more days of 88 miles or more for E=88
11 more days of 89 miles or more for E=89 (Billie Dovey's 1938 Eddington number)
16 more days of 90 miles or more for E=90

and

42 more days of 100 miles or more for E=100

Day 9 (Amanda Coker) / Day 144 (Kajsa Tylen):

233 more miles of Flatwood riding from Amanda takes her to 2078 miles in nine days. Her average speed continues to increase too. If she were able to keep this up she is going to blow the world record apart. Kajsa rides across the north of the Netherlands in the rain through Groningen and on to the German border, accumulating another century plus ride and crossing the 20,000km mark.

This is turning into such a fascinating event, with two very different riders (as last year with Steve and Kurt). Thanks Jo for all your work in summarising it!

Day 10 (Amanda Coker) / Day 145 (Kajsa Tylen):

Amanda keeps on keeping on with 216 more miles and an increasing average speed. After ten days she has ridden 2294 miles and is 209 miles ahead of world record pace. That is one day's riding in hand. Early days yet, but at her current rate she would take Kurt's record before the end of November month 11.

Kajsa continues her northern European tour crossing Bremerhaven to Bad Bederkesa for another 84 miles on her total. She is now 823 miles ahead of Billie Dovey's record pace.

I suspect that this might be true for a 1st Jan start .. but Amanda only started mid May

Day 11 (Amanda Coker) / Day 146 (Kajsa Tylen):

Another good day for Amanda as she rides 233 miles with a moving average over 19mph. Kajsa has her longest day yet at 125 miles as she rides north out of Germany towards the Danish border. She is currently 867 miles ahead of the Dovey line and around 300 miles ahead of a 50,000km year pace.

Day 12 (Amanda Coker) / Day 147 (Kajsa Tylen):

231 more miles for Amanda as she adds a little more variety to her Flatwood trails riding. Her rate of progress is looking rather special with an unprecedented start taking her almost as far ahead of the new WR pace as Kurt achieved at his strongest point in the year. Kajsa rides an undulating loop of northern Germany for 66 miles, keeping enticing roads of Scandinavia for another day.

Day 13 (Amanda Coker) / Day 148 (Kajsa Tylen):

Amanda's repeats of the Flatwoods trails become loops as a new paved section is opened up. Her 216 miles for the day take her to 264 above Kurt's WR pace. Kajsa leaves Germany behind and rides 111 miles of glorious Danish roads - her 61st century of the year.
