If you admitted to the officer that you were speeding, the ticket is 100% valid and you're pretty much shit out of luck. That being said, a lawyer can still get you out of most of it.
The only answer to give when a cop asks you questions is, "I'm positive that I was obeying all traffic laws and posted speed limits." If they ask you what the speed limit is for that zone, look directly at them and ask if you're free to go, or say "What an odd question, why do you ask?". If you get a ticket and they've asked you this, make a note that the officer seemed uncertain of the speed limit for the area when he pulled you over.
The other option is. When the cop arrives, ask them "What seems to be the trouble officer?"... or my personal favorite "Welcome to Wendy's, can I help you?" (be ready for a sobriety test... but they'll forget about the speeding ticket).
