Can you race
at maximum speed?
A K1 could quite possibly achieve
a maximum speed (by GPS) of 22.5km/h, and could do about 21km/h very
easily. Therefore If you could race 200m at the maximum speed it would take
32-33sec. This proves that it's not possible to race 200m even close to
the maximum - even though almost everyone starts with full speed and try
to maintain it as long as possible. There must be room for some research
