I collected Steve's Strava-data from his attempts for a comparative overwiew:

After 95 days (June 6th) the daily average of Steve's 3rd attempt is 222 miles/ day. This puts him about 1580 miles above the "Godwin-line" (i.e. 205,7 miles/ day). Kurt Searvogel rode very similar daily averages in his best HAMR-months 2015 (May till July, November, December).

With daily averages between 220 (April 2017) and 225 miles (March 2017) Steve is cycling a bit longer and a bit faster than during his best months in 2015 (June and September 2015), when he rode around 215 miles/ day. Steve's best month ever so far is his HMMR-attempt in September 2016 when he reached 236 miles/ day, thanks to a slightly higher average speed.

While Steve's average daily speeds 2017 show considerable variation, monthly data leads to pretty homogeneous values of about 16 miles/ hour. The monthly average daily riding time is pretty stable, too, overall average is 13,9 hours/ day.

My impression:

Steve is in better shape than 2015 and he is on a good way to beat Tommy Godwin's 1939-mileage (75075, 205,7 miles/ day) and Kurt Searvogel's 2015 (76076, 208,4 miles/ day). But Kurt's setbacks 2015 and Steve's lower winter miles show that a comfortable lead can quickly vanish. I hope that Steve's anomalous daily routines with several sleepless nights do not overstretch his immune system.

Amanda Coker's 20106/2017-record of 86573 miles (237,2 miles/ day) is out of Steve's reach.
