Yes, not all traces are usable. If I remember correctly the upload UI offers various levels of privacy-protecting transformations. Thankfully all you need to extract speed info is relative timestamps, and only the most paranoid option destroys that.

Anyway, just try filtering in your area and see what you're left with.
