World Human Powered Speed Challenge

The World Human Powered Speed Challenge will be held September 8th - 14th, 2019 at Battle Mountain, Nevada for the 20th consecutive year of racing.

SR 305 provides one of the straightest, smoothest and most ideal road surfaces in the world for HPV records. The 4,619ft (1,408m) altitude road provides riders a 5 mile acceleration zone, 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 the Nevada Department of Transportation, using a Nevada Department of Tourism Grant from the US government.

Record attempts: Sunday Sept 8th - Saturday Sept 14th.

Racer/Volunteer Meeting: Saturday Sept 7th.

Setup days: Sept 5, 6 & 7th
