Just a short update, more elaborate later. Jan-Marcel made a speed run, but without official time because the timing traps had some trouble. The gps/timing device in the cygnus measured 127 km/h. Last time the 124 km/h on the gps was equal to the official 124.98 km/h. The timing officials are deliberating what they can do.
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.
