But in Human Powered Water Competition, very fast boats are used, driven by, propeller or air screw. Some boats use hydrofoils to minimize the resistance in the water for more speed. Also submarines are among the Human Powered Water Vehicles, driven with propeller or non-propeller. Today the Human Powered Submarines are free-flooding wet submarines. It means, that the riders breath from a diving outfit and a scuba-system aboard.

Merika comes from the Netherlands. So how can a human powered bicycle travel at 90 miles per hour on flat ground? The remainder is made up of rolling resistance and bearings, and really that part is insignificant. You can feel how much resistance there is and turn it like an airplane wing and actually fly your hand in the wind.
We had the Delta Amsterdam team qualifying in the 60s mph on a half course with only two and a half miles to accelerate to the meter time trap. These bikes are not purchased off a shelf.
Each steamliner is custom designed and all but hand-manufactured. Working year-a-round, university-based and independent teams spend staggering numbers of hours developing their designs. Winning and setting records at the World Human Powered Speed Challenge are important and coveted accomplishments, but Krause says the object is to gain valuable knowledge from making the most aerodynamically efficient vehicles possible. These are super-efficient vehicles that are going at highway speeds on the power of three watt bulbs.

The stories behind the bikes that compete in Battle Mountain are inspiring examples of dedication, learning, skill, and to a large degree, daring. The competition drives the development of technology and also demands a well-coordinated team effort. You have to be able to start to make the run and you have to start in compliance with our rules. Very large groups of students are working on these projects year around. Many of these bikes are a huge effort.
Competitors from eight nations are in Battle Mountain this year.
