During the World Human Powered Speed Challenge 2012 in Battle Mountain last week, a lot of pictures have been made. A number of people, who made pictures are, in no particular order: Dave Larrington, Jonathan Woolrich, Jun Nogami, Ben Goodall, Tom Adams, Bas de Meijer, Mike Mowett and Wim Schermer. There will even be a lot more people who made pictures, but these I can link to. Thank you very much for posting pictures. Some of their pictures have been borrowed to liven up blog posts on this blog. We would like to give them the credit they deserve. Thanks to all of them, a lot of people who weren't there did get the chance to feel as if they were. So thank you.
