Team Cygnus has developed a fully faired recumbent bicycle that can compete with the fastest recumbents in the world. The main goal is to use an optimum man-machine combination to break world records. The Cygnus team consists of technical specialists from various disciplines. Between them they have many years of experience with fully faired recumbents both in racing and in designing. All Cygnus team members are racers at the highest level. Every year they compete in national and international competitions such as Battle Mountain, the European Championship, the World Championship, and the Michigan Human Powered Speed Challenge, but they also attempt to break records on the tracks of RDW, DEKRA and Opel.
The end comes closer. After all the great changes it is now time for the finishing touch for the Cygnus Beta. Last weekend we were busy sanding and filling and some repairs were done. The Cygnus Beta is now ready for the painter.
Sjaak has milled the first plug for the frontwheel fairing of the Cygnus trike. Pieter and Jan have been busy making a fairing out of it.
