Earlier today, students attending TU Delft and VU Amsterdam became the third fastest student team at a bicycle speed race in the USA. Former Olympic ice skater Jan Bos raced on behalf of the student team in the World Human Powered Speed Challenge. Bos recorded a top speed of 124.73 km/h on the lightning-fast Velox 6: a high-tech, aerodynamic recumbent bike designed and built by TU Delft and VU Amsterdam students. The world record was also broken at last night’s event, with Canadian Todd Reichert achieving a speed of 144.15 km/h. Read more.
