I can not imagine going that fast for 60 seconds, let alone 60 minutes. Wow!

That's such a great thing for students to ramp up for! Their vehicle looks like a winner to me! :-)

Great stuff. I think I've mentioned this in other threads but we have a human powered vehicle team on our campus that does very well. Students design, build and race their own vehicles and our team has won several national races. Here is a photo from one of their recent victories.

Please note that Sam set that record on a RECUMBENT bike.
