World Human Powered Speed Challenge 2014    

During the week of September 8th -  13th,  2014,  22 cyclists from from 8 countries will gather on SR305 outside  Battle Mountain, Nevada for the 15th consecutive year of racing on what is arguably the straightest, smoothest and most ideal road surface in the world for HPV records.

 Mike Mowett has posted a list of the current entrants here

The 4,619ft (1,408m) altitude road allows riders an acceleration zone of over 4 miles, enabling them to reach their maximum velocity before being timed over a 200 meter distance. The section of the road used for this event was newly refinished in 2009, with a smooth surface specially prepared for human powered vehicle racing by Frehner Construction and the Nevada Department of Transportation, using a Nevada Department of Tourism Grant from the US government.

Be sure to follow the action daily, check the  event website for links, updates, results and photos!

Barring any unforeseen complications or technical weirdnesses, you should be able to see live coverage from the post racing wrap-up meetings on the  USTREAM  channel.
