Battle mountain HPV

Battle mountain

While we’re sat at our desks ploughing a diligent furrow, there are a select band of cyclists applying an altogether more brutal form of diligence on the salt flats of Nevada. This year’s Human Powered Vehicle championships run until Saturday the 14th of September. Will Sam Wittingham’s 82.819 mph be bettered? Will Barbara Buatois’  ladies record of 75.69mph be broken? There is no question that the HPV champs represent truly remarkable human accomplishments.

More details about this year’s champs can be found here. With thanks to Craig for the link to the excellent art deco influenced poster.
