Your post makes it sound like you rode 3052 miles in 5d 19hrs (avg speed ~ 22mph) obviously that isn't possible.

An eight man relay team can make that kind of time.

Is that what you did? It is still quite an accomplishment!

How many miles did you ride? What was your longest day on the bicycle? Any pics or links?

...
It is possible, we did. No, I didn't ride it solo. We were on a 8 tandem team. I also did it on a four tandem team in 6 days 9hrs. Our team has a couple RAAM records. The most I've ridden solo in 24hrs on the bicycle was 412 miles. Below are a couple of our web sites. There are pictures and some videos on there as well.
