2002 WHPSC Results

The 2002 World Human Powered Speed Challenge will for the third year in a row pit man, technology, and sheer determination against the unrelenting forces of air resistance and friction to determine the absolute boundaries of man powered speed for a 200 meter distance. In 2001, Sam Whittingham broke the speed record for the second year in a row by going 80.55 MPH. Matt Weaver broke the previous years record by 6 MPH for second place. 

Do you want to race at Battle Mountain? Now there are HPRA races and speed run qualifier races, which are open to anybody with a bike.

Once again racers will gather on SR305, outside of Battle Mountain Nevada, to race on one of the straightest, flattest, and smoothest surfaces in the world. The 4,619ft/1,408m altitude road allows riders an acceleration zone of over 3 miles, enabling them  to reach their maximum velocity.

The WHPSC is not only an opportunity to set an IHPVA sanctioned world record for speed, it also represents the World's Fastest Human propelled by his own power. 

The marriage of maximum athletic power and high level aerodynamic and engineering result in shockingly fast speeds.

A Battle Mountain racing committee has been formed to oversee the the yearly event. This committee consists of Sean Costin, Gardner Martin, Matt Weaver and Garrie Hill.

Though the WHPSC is is an invitational event for logistics reasons, spectators and especially volunteers are welcome to attend.
