World record speeds

Since the day I learned the principle of a velomobile, I was fascinated. But some people go further… From 2010 onwards students from the TU Delft and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam are trying to optimize a self-buld bike to break the world cycling record, currently set at 133 km/h. The results are the VeloX1 and VeloX2. A lot of detailed info can be found on this website. Including these awesome movies… A new team just started working on a third project.
