Here are some statistical comparisons of some previous record attempts. I wish I could get data on more attempts like Denesik 2000 and Ballengee 2000. If you can help add to this information please contact me and I will try to get it updated. In some cases I fudged some numbers so the comparisons made sense. I also have my 2003 Self Powered Splits but left them out for now since they are confusing (as I was able to bike up to higher starting points).
What strikes me is how darn slow I am compared to everyone else, how fast Denesik could move on the trail, and how the record has evolved so that you need to spend about 66% of your total time on the trail, although I imagine someone really fast on the trails could afford to take a little more rest.
