our mission

world record

The Human Power Team is a student team from the Delft University of Technology and Vrije Universiteit  Amsterdam. Our mission 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. 

In September 2019 the Human Power Team broke the old women’s world record with a speed of 122.12 km/h.

In September 2013 the Human Power Team broke the old men’s world record with a speed of 133.78 km/h.
