Unbelievable two runs  cheers cheers, congrats to the whole team.  I doubted that I'd ever see a wheel driven 500 mph run in 5 miles in my lifetime.  Now I might  smiley.

Would she have waited until the hottest part of the day to ride or does it not make a difference on a bicycle whether it's hot or cold?

My guess is Denise would opt to make this run in the coolest part of the day. She is in full leathers and helmet, pedaling at maximum effort, with little to no air flow and in a vacuum. That had to be very uncomfortable. The upside for anyone looking to beat this record is that body size is likely not going to be an issue as it would in open air. So, if a beast like Great Britten's Chris Hoy in his prime, would give up nothing aerodynamically to a much smaller Denise.

I think it goes somewhat unnoticed that it was a female driver in the tow vehicle.

Would she have waited until the hottest part of the day for thinner air to ride or does it not make a difference on a bicycle whether it's hot or cold?

Denise was tethered to the tow vehicle until a certain mph was reached. Prior to reaching tether release speed, Denise began bringing up pedal cadence to eventually be at full pedal power before going it alone. From this point, she must generate enough power (Watts) to stay in the draft. Now, the flying 200 meter World Record at 48 mph was done with massive watts generated by the rider. These watts are in the 2300 plus instantaneous watts range and maintaining close to that for 200 meters. What would be of great interest is knowing how many watts Denise had to generate to reach and hold 183 mph.

Also, there was likely a roller (out of video sight) that she could bump without putting her off the bike. This roller is common practice when motor pacing behind a track derny (motorcycle).

I take nothing away from this remarkable and amazing accomplishment. It required high levels of skill and courage.
