    I think, this is a question for the "cycling training" forum.

    Get more aero ...

    You can only pedal so fast ... at some point, you will be going faster than 30mph at which point pedaling probably becomes inefficient relative to a better aero position on the bike.

    Without knowing what you're using, I would suggest better hubs -- e.g., Hugi/DT, Dura Ace or Ultegra, Campagnolo Record or Chorus.
