Looks like he was pretty solid. 4:59:27.

22.39 mph on the bike. Not sure how tough Boise is/elevation off the top of my head but his numbers were better than I thought they would be.

All skaters make excellent cyclists.....not surprising at all that he had a solid bike split.  See Eric Heiden.

^ Yup. He should be able to do very well in Kona.

Don't forget Clara Hughes-- who started as a cyclist and then took up speed skating. Lots of cross-over skills in the two sports.

That- and he's probably blessed with an aerobic engine twice the size of we mere mortals.
