Our Mission

The Human Power Team is a Dreamteam with excellent students from the Delft University of Technology and Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Our aim is to push the limits of human capabilities and break the human powered speed record. To achieve this, we select, train and coach our own athletes who will race in a VeloX. This is a highly aerodynamic recumbent bicycle, designed and built by the Human Power Team.
