There is one report of flying at 60mph (no weight listed) down the
length of the runway.

My TriQ, at 980lbs actual, flew nose high at a stable 62mph with no
evidence of a pitch buck. Each plane is different, especially as the
weight changes. That is why it is so important to test the particular
plane for stall speed at a range of weights, all of the way up to
listed max GW.

For initial landing, before stall testing, an approach at 80mph with
an expected landing at 70+mph makes a lot of sense.
