WHPSC 2017    

The 18th annual World Human Powered Speed Challenge will again be held in Battle Mountain, Nevada from September 11th-16th, 2017. 


The world’s fastest bicycles will attempt to break the human powered land speed record.

The challenge is against the forces of nature and the viscosity of the air itself. The record to beat is an amazing 89.59 mph set by Todd Reichert in 2016 when 10 countries from around the globe came to compete. Teams from France, Russia, Japan, Canada, Italy, Mexico, USA, the Netherlands and Britain, including many collegiate teams, brought their high-tech pedal powered bullet-bikes to achieved amazing speeds setting many National and World records.
