Update: a couple of notes, and pictures from earlier in the day.
Here is Completely Overzealous getting wax applied to its bottom. This must be why it set a new trike record again this evening (70.73 mph). BTW the IHVPA has decided to recognize trike records officially. This was decided yesterday by the board.
- Ellen Van Vugt set a new personal best (68.64) but the wind was just a little to fast for this to be a legal run.
- David went off the road with Cygnus near the start. They will be repairing the bike tonight and tomorrow.
- Sebastiaan was a hair slower than Wed. They warped their rear wheel this AM because it overheated when an auxiliary rim brake was applied during a run. Also, there was an issue with the Delft van not getting back to start with the bike between the first and second heat, so perhaps he didn’t have enough time to settle in the bike for his run.
The anticipation for a new absolute world record is palpable. Let’s see what happens Friday!
